Our yard has frequent visits from those pesky, armored creatures called armadillos. Their
dinosaur look, beady eyes, and mouse-like
ears make them easily recognizable, but their most well-known trait is the
ability to destroy a lawn in one night of feeding. The claws attached to their
scaly legs can dig more holes than a backhoe on assignment. The evidence left
behind is a yard full of ugly holes.

A couple of weeks ago we were plagued with two of these visitors. The daytime sleeping area was a large hole behind my hydrangeas. I was not a happy gardener when I spotted the pile of dirt in the flower bed and the exposed roots of my shrubs. I knew we had another culprit and the hunt was on.
