Armadillos are mainly found in southern states, most notably in Texas; but have also been found in Nebraska and parts of Florida. Armadillos may look slow and innocent, but they can be destructive in gardens just like other types of wildlife.
Although armadillos do not jump, they tunnel. Because burrowing is the issue, it is recommended that gardeners build a steel fence in 2-3 foot heights to halt action from the armadillo. Gardeners will need to trench the fence 12-18 inches in the ground for best results.
Metal rodent barrier fences with PVC-coating protect the steel material from corrosion and chew marks from animals. This type of fence will not only stop armadillos, but will also stop groundhogs and rabbits from burrowing underneath the fence.
