Pesky armadillo deterrent
This past weekend I created what I think to be a deterrent for pesky armadillos. They drive me nuts rooting through dirt and literally uprooting 50% of what I plant - seedlings and even full grown plants at times. I cut bamboo stakes about 18" and arranged them around my cucumber seedlings tying them together at the top to form a teepee of sorts. It has been 3 days now and all of my cucumber and malibar spinach seedlings have gone unbothered. I have a teepee around my eggplant seeds too though they have not sprouted yet. I figure the teepee will add a nice little support for the plant too as these vining plants get going and work their way up their trellis. Has anyone else tried this? How did it go?
