I've trapped one...with a container of earthworms in a little compost inside the trap, but not sure any bait is necessary. Best to "funnel" it toward the humane trap. I used concrete blocks to aim it toward a trap on one side of the house near a fence. For years I ignored them, but during the drought I got tired of it constantly digging up my yard. I let it go elsewhere.

We used to put Moth balls under our Hunting cabin to keep out Armadillos and Rattle snakes.

Armadillos love Lone Star beer but since they went out of business you might try Shiner (an old TX tradition).

You get him drunk then grab his tail to pick him up. Then haul him off.

I think Louisiana disagree, or so goes the conventional wisdom.

Kill it with a rifle (unless your in city limits, if so then use a compound bow and broadhead tips) or anything else handy, baseball bat, golf club, steak knife, etc...

They are disgusting filthy creatures that carry all sorts of diseases and nasty stuff!

I don't think so. There is no way I would tolerate an armadillo in my yard, blech nasty animals.
