Try the granules for ticks it also gets rid of grubs and ants that armadillos eat. It worked in my yard so it should work on food plots.


I like that idea. I've heard of similar methods to get rid of moles, so it seems fair that it would work with the dillos too.

Next questions -

How expensive is it to treat large areas?
Are there any negative side effects to getting rid of your grub/ant populations?

I would think that they help aerate the soil like worms due, and probably have some sort of fertilizing benefit as well.

Shot my third dillo with the bow this afternoon and seen a young basket 8 pointer ten minutes later. Thought my dillo shooting would mess up my deer hunting but using the bow it hasn't. \:\)

If your serious.... google ARMADILLO. In the military we use to call them APCs (Armored Possum Carriers). Given your screen name I'm suprised you haven't shot a few.
