Where I live, you’ve got as much a chance of seeing an armadillo as you do an 100 degree day. But, for those of you way down south and west, the Dasypus novemcinctus can be a fairly common sight. Seeing them isn’t a problem until they turn up in your yard and garden and begin to root up flowers or vegetables. I hear they can also be a threat to your backyard chicken eggs.
What to do? Well, I came across this answer to dealing with an aggressive armadillo on a message board:
“My friend Lisa, who I occasionally do a radio show with, is always a proponent of the urine approach. “That’s how everyone else in Nature does it!” says she, and you know, she’s right. Try it…
Not my usual critter in the garden but the principle remains the same. If this does not deter, try predator urines like coyote (THERE’s a job I don’t want; collecting coyote pee).
I choose to live and let, and have chosen urine as my weapon of choice – Scott”
Armadillos? We’ve got a pee for that – and it happens to be coyote urine. So, instead of trying to trap the horny, hard shelled animals – I’d rather collect pee than tangle with an armadillo – put the all natural, organic power of predator urine to work for you.
Until I find more words. . .
