Tools & Materials Needed to Remove Armadillos

OK, so you have identified and figured out that you have an issue with Armadillos, GREAT, but what next? Simple, you need to remove them! But you are going to need the right tools, bait, traps, and strategic skills to properly get rid of Armadillos. This article and page has to do with what tools you are going to need to properly remove the armadillos from your home and yard the right way and hopefully they will not come back!

The first Step is Trapping the Armadillo, This is discussed on my Armadillo Trapping Page. Please go here for that information:


Once it is confirmed that all the Armadillos are gone, trapped, and removed, the next step in How to Remove Armadillos and ensure they don't come back, is going to be an Exclusion. An exclusion is where you seal up the Garden from any of the openings, damage or access points that the Armadillo or other animals have used to gain access to your Lawn and Garden. This is more on the handyman side of things. If you are not good at handyman or construction work you may want to give me a call, Brendan Mangnitz, or any of the Certified Wildlife Control Operators that we have listed here in our directory at the Location Page: Myself or any other Certified Professional Trapper can go out there with the exclusion crew and take care of the Armadillo damage for you. If you want to try it, then keep reading and good luck!

You want to use only the best materials anytime you are dealing with Armadillos. They are strong and fierce, and very determined. The foam that they sell at the hardware store, is 100% GARBAGE. Armadillos can chew right through this, this just makes them laugh. Chicken Fencing does not always work either, I have seen these bad boys tear through just about anything. Steel is the one thing that really seems to do the trick, or concrete!

You want to use only Steel, Metal, and Concrete products. Identify all the areas on the Garden that have gaps or openings. You then want to seal off these areas ensuring that future animals cannot get into the structure. Take your time and do a good job closing off your Garden from the Armadillos, exclusion work and filling in the burrows with concrete is how you can guarantee that you will not have a future issue with Armadillos!


And that is my How to Guide when it comes to Armadillos on your property and how to remove them. Like I have mentioned my name is Brendan Mangnitz I have being doing pest wildlife and Armadillo removal now for over 6 years. I have worked and trained 100’s of people of the past years, and now I have created this website as an educational platform and referral service for other professionals that follow the same guidelines and procedures as myself and my company. It takes time, skill, and patience but removing Armadillos can be dangerous, but is also something that we deal with on the daily here. Armadillos have learned how to thrive and do great in the urban setting. This is not something that is going away. With more and more houses coming up every day, more land being constructed and developed we will always have issues with Armadillos in the garden and lawn. Just read and learn how to protect yourself, your family and your home and you should be good to go.
