Pest Problems

Anonymous added on June 27, 2015 | Answered

I live in Texas. Our house is situated close to an open field. For some unknown reason, maybe due to the heat this year, I am having a problem with armadillos digging in my flower beds. I've tried several things to keep them out but nothing seems to work. I've contacted my county extension agent and they said there is only two things to do - trap them or shoot them. Since I live inside the city limits, I can't shoot them and don't want to buy an expensive cage to trap them in. I thought maybe your staff might have some other suggestions on what I can try.
