Armadillos are like most animals. They locate and associate with one another by the sense of smell. They have an incredible sense of smell. When they are foraging and they smell another armadillo, they will go and check it out. That is what makes a wooden trap work so well. Trapping armadillos is made easy with our armadillo trap.
LSU said in a press release, " Another choice for control is a wood trap, which employees at the LSU AgCenter Hammond Research Station are having good success with, Reed said. If you can catch one armadillo, the wood in the trap tends to hold the animal’s scent, and then other armadillos will be attracted to the trap.Another trap option is made of wire mesh. However, this trap does not hold the scent of an armadillo and is not as effective." Click here to read the press release.
Mississippi State University will soon publish their field research results on our trap. For now, we are authorized to quote them as saying: "the armadillo traps were found to significantly catch more armadillos than traditional wire live catch traps in a 2009 university research study conducted in Mississippi." We will link that publication here when it is available
Typically, our customers find a spot on their property where the trap is obscure and in a shaded area. All they then have to do is just check daily to see if the trap doors are down. There are scores of customers with 50-100+ catches with our trap. They all have two things in common. They all have our wooden trap and seldom move the trap around. They find a good shaded spot and leave the trap in that spot the year around.
