How to get rid of armadillo's


Hello, this is my first post to this group. Can someone please help me keep the armadillo's from destroying my yard? I've tried moth ball and pinesol and that only last for a day or two.

We don't have armadillos in North Hollywood but the question piqued my interest. After some research on the subject, I came up with three solutions. Well, one solution for sure and two that might not work at all.

The sure way to keep the critters out of your yard is a fence with no openings wide enough for them to get through. It must be two feet or more in height and penetrate the ground a foot or more. If you opt for the lowest height, angle the top of it outwards forty degrees.

Motion-activated sprinklers may or may not work. You'd have to give them a try and see what happens. Depending on the size of your yard, you may want to install more than one. Don't go for the cheap kind that will poop out on you or flood your yard. Return for a refund if you're unsatisfied and get your money back.

My last solution is witchcraft. Cast a nature spell to keep them away. Or, if you have no experience at this sort of thing, hire a professional to cast it for you because inadvertently summoning a tree demon or a horde of angry armadillos would be terrifying and should be avoided.
