"I have caught three armadillos in my yard with your trap. I put it out, and next morning he/she is
off to its new home in the woods, miles away. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME
WITH ANY OTHER MICKEY MOUSE TRAP. This one is the only way to go!"
T.F. (LA) 7/18
"Don't know when we have been so impressed with anything as we are your
Armadillo trap!! Good job! We've bought one for our neighbor and the
guys who mows for us bought one for their parents. It works just like
you say it does. Unfortunately, that almost never happens anymore!"
M.D. (MS) 7/18
"I had borrowed one of your traps from a friend, caught 4.
I had to have one of my own (seasoned) and all I can say is it works!"

"Awesome trap. I have been trying to catch some armadillos that have
been tearing up my flower beds for some time. I received one of your
scented traps last week, I set the trap on Friday and Saturday.
Caught one each night, great trap, and it was easy to relocate them
alive. Thanks again!!"

tearing up my yard at all....amazing. Thank you."
A.B. (FL) 7/18
"We received your trap in the mail and immediately put it where the dillo made a
path of destruction. BINGO! Big Daddy captured. For the next 3
nights, the beasts walked right into your trap! One night was
unsuccessful so we moved trap to other garden and BINGO! So far, 4
out of 6 nights have resulted in a capture."
R.E. (TX) 7/18

W.T. (TX) 10/17 "
UPS delivered the trap I ordered from you today. It's 10 pm and I

before. Nor have professionals. Works perfectly."

the trick. Thanks, I will recommend you."

P.G. (FL) 10/17 "
I bought one a few years ago and was able to catch over 15 Armadillos over time the wood started to deteriorate in the hot and humid Florida weather.
I ordered one again I got the pre-scented again in the first night I bagged my first new Armadillo."
V.K. (FL) 10/17 "

place. Thank you for a trap that actually works. Good job!"

S.M. (FL) 8/17 "

than one - my yard and I both thank you!"
J.J. (TX) 8/17 "
I just wanted to tell you the trap arrived perfectly packed and very
quickly. It was
very easy to assemble the the couple of pieces I needed to and your
instructions were great and easy to follow. I have since caught 6 armadillos.
H.C. (MS) 8/17 "
so happens that the varment was burrowing in a shed at the back of
the house and directly in my eyesight!! I checked it a couple of
times during the night and then at 4:30am I looked and "oh my gosh" I
had him!!! I cannot be more pleased!! "
S.S. (AL) 8/17 "
I bought two scented traps 6 or 8 months ago and the season of
having them in our yard had ended. Can't
believe it but they really worked. Thank you."
D.W. (GA) 8/17 "
This is the second trap I've purchased. The first one has been very
successful have captured eight armadillos. I have found it would be
better to get a second trap to use up my daughters home which has a
substantial number of armadillos in the area. Again a wonderful trap
and extremely easy to operate."
Z.B. (TX) 7/17 "
evidence of armadillos digging. I set my trap near the area above the
creek and several mornings later I caught an Armadillo. . . .without
using boards or any other means / scent to attract& steer them to the
trap. Using the trap was effortless & effective."
D.R. (GA) 7/17 "
I bought two scented traps. I just caught number 13 last night. No
wonder they were doing so much damage."
D.C. (GA) 5/17 "
I bought my trap just a couple of months ago. I live in Richmond
Hill, GA, just outside of Savannah. I have already caught FIVE
armadillos and have recommended your trap to several others.
Just wanted to report another success story!"
M.L. (TX) 5/17 "
I just wanted to tell you that your trap really works, I got my first
Armadillo the first night I put the trap out. 3 nights later I got my
second one. I’ve had a metal trap set for 6 months without any
success so I’m pleased to hopefully start to get rid of them."
N.H. (TX) 5/17 "
I received your
trap and set it up immediately. The armadillo hadn’t returned for three days,
but came back last night and your trap was set. GOT HIM. Calling my
neighbor to pick him up and relocate him FAR away from civilization.
Please send me a BUNCH of your cards!!! I have told my feed store and
several plant nurseries I have visited that I ordered your trap."
J.B. (WA) 5/17 "
I used the same metal trap unsuccessfully for about a year trying to
catch an armadillo(s) that were making a small mess of our yard on a
fairly frequent basis. At long last, my neighbor found your website and we
ended up purchasing the armadillo trap as a last resort. Since then, we have caught six (6) armadillo on my property, and one
at a neighbor's home with your trap. I just wanted to share this story with you, and to thank you for
coming up with such a novel and humane way of trapping these harmless

We got the trap on Friday and had the armadillo Saturday morning. Amazing."
R.L. (MS) 4/17 "
Love the trap! Caught a big one. I think he was my big problem over
the months. Thanks for your help."
R.A. (KS) 4/17 "
I bagged up my armadillo trap last December in a large
trash bag and stored it in my garage. I took it out of
storage recently and set it in an active armadillo area. Caught an armadillo
just a few days later. I caught 7 armadillos last summer/fall with this trap. It is amazing."
J.P. (GA) 4/17 "
This trap works! Buying my second one today. Buy the scented
model. You will not be sorry"
T.B. (AL) 4/17 "
Trap arrived well boxed and in great shape. Three caught in the first week. Since then, ten
additional armadillos trapped. Placement is the key. Look for where
they travel and place on top of the pathway. No barriers were used to
funnel them into the trap. "
T.C. (GA) 11/16 "
Thanks guys, have caught 3 armadillos in trap during the first 2 weeks
of use. It works great! "

R.T. (FL) 11/16 "
I received your pre-scented trap on Friday evening, placed
it out on Saturday night. Nothing on Sunday AM. But this morning (Monday)
there was a size large armadillo sleeping inside. He/she would have
been upturning my grass, but not anymore! It works!"
C.N. (TX) 11/16 "
I bought your trap in 2015. I caught one using
guides to direct the armadillo. This year I have trapped 6 armadillos
just by placing the trap where we can tell that they have been!
Like you claim, the armadillo just walks right into the trap! Thank
you, thank you!"
D.H. (GA) 11/16 "
We've tried several different traps with no success. We
caught an armadillo with the scented trap the first time it was set.
The trap is well-made, easy to set and works great!"
M.G. (OK) 10/16 "
Works as advertised. I was concerned if it would hold the scent over the Winter from one year to the next in storage. It worked just fine. I just misted the interior lightly with water and set it out and started catching again."
B.P. (TX) 10/16 "
This thing is absolutely amazing. We’ve caught 13 Armadillos since receiving the trap in late April this year. Every time we see evidence of Armadillos anywhere in the yard or flower beds, I simply find a place where I believe they’re moving in and out and I’ll catch one. Caught 3 just this past week. Good job!
J.L. (FL) 10/16 "
I just put my new scented trap in service yesterday and got my first capture 12 hours later! Great product!"

armadillos in the same area of my property. Your instructions work."

These traps are amazing. I have had numerous Armadillos on my property and they have taken car of my problem. I tried the wire traps, but they just don't work."
L.C. (AK) 10/16 "
Fantastic trap. After catching 5 in my yard over a 2 month period my yard is now free of the rascals. Great trap and worth every cent."

We have caught a total of 15 this year already. This trap works great and if you follow the instructions, you will catch armadillos."
H.S. (GA) " I manage a quail farm in SW Georgia and have had problems with armadillos for years. Your trap has been a huge success for me and the property I manage. Even my boss got a couple for his home in South Carolina. I'm one very happy and satisfied customer."
D.M. (FL) " I've had my trap less than 24 hours and caught my first armadillo. This trap is worth every cent."
M.G. (FL) " Your armadillo trap has exceeded my expectations.
Armadillos were destroying my property. I tried everything but nothing
seemed to work. I have caught 6 armadillos in the last 2 weeks. It is
incredible! You are making it very easy for me. Thank you!"
S.T. (FL) " I bought the scented trap after a "professional" using wire traps only caught one opossum over 5 months and nothing else. The armadillos were rooting around within 5 inches of the wire traps, then would go the other way. After setting the scented wooden trap, I began to catch armadillos. Literally overnight results. Well worth the money. Thanks!"

armadillo the third time I set it. Then, I managed to catch three armadillos in it at one time. Very
impressed with the trap."
D.D. (FL) "After having multiple wire traps not work for me, I decided to try the Armadillo Trap. On the third night, I caught a large one, the next night another and two nights later another one. I have spread the word about your trap to my co-workers who are battling their own form of "Armadillogeddon"! Hopefully, you'll hear from them soon"
D.F. (FL) "I got my trap Friday and in less than 2 hours after I it, I had my first Armadillo. I set the trap the next day after dark and caught another. These are truly amazing. It was a great decision to buy these traps as now I can rid my farm of nuisance critters."
T.T. (LA) "I purchased an unscented trap approximately ten months
ago. I have caught nineteen armadillos with it. It works great. I give
it five stars."
T.R. (FL) "I got my scented trap recently and caught our first Armadillo in just two days! We have tried the metal ones in the past and they were just a "waste of money". Great trap, great design, great quality and great customer service. Thank you Armadillo Trap."
R.W. (GA) "I was just reading reviews and saw my old post from just over 1 year ago at 40 armadillos caught. Total as of today: 76. No doubt the highest quality and best designed trap for capturing armadillos on market."
J.M. (GA) "I purchased the scented trap last fall and it works great! I have caught 3 armadillos in my yard. My neighbor has tried to catch them in a wire trap with no success. Great product - solves a difficult problem... how to catch an armadillo!"

H.L. (MO) "Great product. I caught an Armadillo the first night I set out the trap. We've had heavy rains daily after it arrived and I waited until we had a rainless night to set it out and trapped one the first night.
Thanks for saving my yard."
F.H. (MO) "The first night I set the trap, I didn't get anything. By the second morning, I had captured two. Thank you, the trap worked great."
L.S. (AL) "I ordered the scented trap for convenience. It arrived yesterday in record time, thank you! We set the trap last night at 8:00 pm. This morning at 6:00 am we had an armadillo! The trap works great and is worth every penny. The only drawback is the weight which I'm guessing is the trade off for being indestructible."
J.M. (MO) "I caught three armadillos in last four nights. Enough said!"
J.P. (MO) "I purchased the trap late last fall. By the time it arrived our armadillos had went south for the winter (SW Missouri). In the middle of April, I noticed new holes in my yard. After a couple of nights of no catches, suddenly I began catching armadillos. I am going to move the trap to a neighbor's yard to catch the ones terrorizing his yard. Great product, just be patient and you will catch them."
M.N. (AL) "This is a well made, quality product that really works. I caught two the first two nights I had the trap. Thanks for the fast shipping."

D.S. (FL) "I have to admit I was skeptical about the trap at first, but I bought a scented one anyway. I set it up and caught an armadillo the first night. I reset it and caught another one the next night. This trap is well built and should last a long time. I'm a happy customer. Thanks for a great product."
A.L. (FL) "I just received my scented trap yesterday and got it set up last night. I had an armadillo in the trap this morning. I have a feeling I will be catching more in the next few weeks!"
B.B. (FL) "I am proud to report that I reached a landmark recently with my armadillo trapping, using your trap: I have now captured 50 armadillos! I know it's not as many as some, but for my 2 2/3 acre fenced in property I feel it is quite an achievement."
L.D. (MS) "I wanted to thank you for designing a well built trap. We caught our first one in just a few hours after it was set. The second one took a bit longer because we had to figure out the route it was taking between the several yards he was terrorizing. Both were release unharmed, far from our neighborhood. I would recommend the Armadillo Trap to anyone who has a "Dillo" problem."
T.A. (FL) "I have been trying to catch an Armadillo for months using metal traps. They have broken two and always seem to escape. I received one of your traps three days ago and caught my first Armadillo this morning. The trap was unscented, so I left the Armadillo in it for a short while to scent it and then released it far away from my home. Thanks so much!"
J.R. (AL) "I trapped the Armadillo in the very first setting right where he had been digging. The trap is well built and it really works!"
S.C. (TX) "This trap really works. I tried for about a month to catch an armadillo that was wrecking havoc in my flower beds in a Havahart trap to no avail. I bought the scented trap and finally succeeded in catching and relocating him. Great product!"
T.B. (FL) "I just wanted to pass along the news that I have reached a landmark with my armadillo trapping using your trap. I have now captured 50 armadillos! I know it's not as many as some, but for my 2 2/3 acre fenced in property I feel it is quite an achievement."
E.R. (GA) "I was having a big problem with armadillos. I went to your website and was sold on the scented trap. After an easy setup, I caught an armadillo the first night! I have since caught three more, mostly in that first week. I tell everyone about your scented Armadillo Traps. They are well built and do what they promise. I think they will last for years to come. Thank you so much"
S.M. (FL) "I bought the Armadillo Trap to capture an armadillo that had dug a large burrow under my pool deck. I had tried to capture him for two months using a Havahart metal trap with no luck. I caught him the first night using The Armadillo Trap. In less than a month, I've caught three more! Awesome trap!!!"
J.C. (MS) "I received your Armadillo trap yesterday afternoon. I set it out per your instructions and caught my first armadillo last night. Looking for the next one tonight."
M.W. (TX) "AMAZING!!! Within an hour of putting out the trap, we caught a good sized armadillo and were able to safely relocate him. This is truly an amazing product and does the job safely and quickly. We highly recommend The Armadillo Trap!"
R.H. (TX) "I would like to say "Thank You, it has been a pleasure doing business with you". You responded to my questions immediately and went beyond my expectations. I am pleased to tell you that both of my traps are working perfectly, trapping armadillos right and left! I no longer have to do "dillo rounds" at 1 am. Extremely pleased with the traps!"

R.H. (AL) "I had some armadillos tearing up my lawn. I had tried everything to get rid of them, even hiring a wildlife company to put out all kind of fencing and traps, all to no avail. I saw the armadillo trap online and decided to order. I ordered it on a Saturday and it arrived on a Tuesday. I put it out that night and had an armadillo in the trap the next morning. This trap really works and I hope to catch the partner tonight. I bought the scented armadillo trap and I am very happy with the results. "
M.G. (FL) "After using other traps with no luck, I decided to buy the Armadillo Trap. I use it between 2 homes and I have caught a total of 13 armadillos. This trap is awesome.

Q.P. (TX) "Fantastic armadillo trap. Got my first armadillo on the second night and it was a big one!!!"

J.A. (AL) "You have an amazing product. I set the trap Saturday and had an armadillo on Sunday. Reset the trap and had another one Monday. Got my third armadillo this afternoon. It's unbelievable the way this thing works. I killed a lot of time in the past trying to catch these things in cage traps with limited results. No more wasted time for me since I purchased your product."
