Armadillos Digging in Yard will typically find a home burrow site within a wood line near your property. They will venture out nightly, mostly just after dark, to forage for grubs and worms in the soft soil surrounding most residential structures.
Armadillos are able to smell the presence of the food source buried as deep as nine inches from the surface of the soil. Trapping can range anywhere from very easy to very difficult, depending upon how they are travelling your property.
Most armadillo damage occurs as a result of their rooting in lawns, golf courses, vegetable gardens, and flower beds. Signs of armadillo activity are shallow holes, 1 to 3 inches deep and 3 to 5 inches wide, which are dug in search of food. They also uproot flowers and other plants. It is extremely difficult to differentiate between armadillo dig holes and skunk dig holes, but it doesn’t really matter. Skunks and armadillos are in search of the same food, and they often hang out together in the same areas. Anything that you do to deter an armadillo from uprooting the yard will work just the same against skunks.
The best defense against armadillos digging up the yard is a good offense. These animals are built for digging and burrowing. Fencing and other barriers may work, but need to be installed with a portion buried under the ground to prevent armadillos from just digging under. If you already have a fence in place and they are already digging under it, you can purchase our Digging Barriers by DigDefence. These will create an underground fence that prevents the armadillo (or skunk or dog!) from being able to dig under.
