Armadillos , friend or foe?

We have purchased our retirement home and it's a new world. City to lake life! So many questions. I'll start with something I didn't expect; armadillos. At night three were climbing up our back deck stairs. What do I need to know to get along with these animals?

    They might become bothersome in that they like to dig up your yard to get to their food. They have a really strong sense of smell so if they do become a bother, keep them away by making your yard stink with smells such as vinegar or ammonia.

    Check with your local experts on critters to see what they say about deterring them from coming up to your door.

    Fo. They will tear a yard and garden up. Get rid of them

    Friendly foe. They can make a mess, but they remove pests.
