How to Kill Armadillos with Poison

To put it simply, you won't be able to kill an armadillo with poison, short of injecting it into the armadillo yourself. Armadillos eat food from the ground and won't be tempted by poison baits that may be safe to use on other nuisance wildlife.

You may see products that claim to get rid of armadillos in local stores that sell yard and garden supplies, but they are phony and are not proven at all. Do some research and read reviews about these products to find out yourself it's a quick way to lose a $20 bill. Don't be fooled by armadillo poison, do the right thing and attempt to trap or exclude the armadillo.
