Columbia Wildlife Trapper Tip of the Month:

What is a natural deterrent for armadillos?

Armadillos like to dig holes in the yard. This destructive nature of armadillos can be very harmful to the beauty of your yard. Therefore you should instantly take steps to deter armadillos from your yard. If you want to get rid of armadillos, here are a few natural ways.

Reduce attractants

Armadillos come in yards to find shelter and food. If you want to remove attractants for armadillos entirely, it is almost impossible, but you can take a few steps to make your yard less welcoming for armadillos.

Remove all those places that can be used as shelters like woodpiles, low lying bushes, and shrubs. Clean up all fallen fruits, leaves, and barriers. By doing this, you can make your yard less welcoming for armadillos.

Armadillo Traps

By using armadillo traps, you can remove them from your property. Trapping armadillos is easy and simple; you just have to properly place the traps. Armadillos use common pathways while searching for food; that's why their behavior is predictable. Here are a few tips to place traps

  • You can place trap directly in front of the tunnel
  • You should place the trap along the wall
  • Place it in such a way that when armadillos enter in it, they walk directly into trapping point.

Armadillo repellents

Castor oil is the best repellent to throw armadillos out of your property and to stop them from searching for food in your yard. If you spread or spray castor oil in your yard, it makes their food unpleasant and smelly. Castor oil creates an odor in their tunnels, making it difficult for them to stay there.

Using predator's urine

Armadillos have a sharp sense of smell; if you spray predator urine into the yard, it will work. Urine can be purchased from stores if you have a dog or cat, you can use their hairs and poop place them into the tunnels of armadillos.

Using Mothballs and ammonia

Both ammonia and mothballs have a strong odor that will work perfectly against armadillos. People who put mothballs (naphthalene) or ammonia near holes and entrance they did not observe any ill effect against them. If you have children and pets, this is not a good idea to use these products as these are toxic and can be harmful if ingested.


You can construct complete fencing if you want to remove armadillos from your property. For effective fencing, you should care for these things,

  • Keep it above the ground at least 2 feet tall
  • Penetrate the ground at least 6-12."
  • The angle at the top should be 40 degree

Electronic repellents 

Electronic repellents are used to scare armadillos; a motion-activated sprinkle is the best option for this purpose. When any armadillos walk near or toward sprinkle, they throw water on them, which makes them scared. These sprinkles can save your flowers, lawn, pathway, vegetables, and trees from armadillos. For the best results, you can use castor oil with electronic repellents.
