Armadillos Design Golf Course in Dallas, Texas

Armadillos move a lot of dirt, destroying golf courses and landscaping. Trapping armadillos is th most effective way to get rid of them.

I am a golf course superintendent in the Dallas, Texas area and I need to get rid of armadillos.  They are ruining my golf course.  I don’t mind a tricky course with sand traps and such, but these guys are creating craters!  Where they don’t belong!

Armadillos aren’t all that big, and they move slowly every time I see them, but, man, can they move a lot of dirt.  They dig huge holes in the course, turning over sod and scraping dirt away. 

A couple of years ago my friend had armadillos in her flower beds and she got really upset and wanted to get rid of the armadillos. I am afraid I wasn’t very kind.  I didn’t see then what the big deal was.  After all, it was just a little-old critter.  Why was she so wound up about it?

What a nuisance.  I am concerned that someone will fall in the holes they leave.  Each morning I drive around and find freshly turned dirt.  It is impossible to keep the course looking like it should.  Now I need to learn how to get rid of armadillos.

They don’t scare.  Nothing really seems to repel them—urine, peppers, noise makers.  I read somewhere that fencing is good, but I can’t fence an entire golf course.  Besides, I’m sure they are living around here somewhere and I would probably fence them in, forcing them to live on the course.

What to do?  There has got to be a way to get rid of the armadillos so I can get my course back into play.
