Red Pepper flakes and Cayenne?
[Return to Topics]

I have had it!!
That darn armadillo or armadillos have dug up enough of my yard.
I am ready to fight back!!
Any good suggestions would be appreciated.

1st. I am going to try to block physical entry if I can.

2nd. If it/they get in I am sprinkling red pepper flakes and ground cayenne pepper around my plants that it has dug around.

I know they are digging for grub worms;
is there anything I can sprinkle over my yard to kill grubs?

same cure for deer or raccoons in the sweet corn, owls getting after the cats, or any other critter problems - leave the dog out at nite. :)

I looked around and found a bag of Diazinon granules here in my store room. The bag label included grubs so I sprinkled some all over the back yard and then watered it.
Hope that and the red pepper helps some to begin with.

I will keep and eye open for Scotts GrubX.
Figured I'd use what was on hand now.

I do hope it is not a Mexican armadillo and it thinks that pepper is dessert!! :-(
