Q&A Home

Dan from Jacksonville, Florida writes,

I just purchased your live trap for armadillos. Any suggestions on how to bait them?

Some said don't use bait as it won't work, others say use worms in a nylon stocking. Do I need to "funnel" them into the trap from an entrance point with boards, or some kind of fence? Any assistance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I just moved to Florida and have never had to deal with armadillo's and their digging. Thank you for any assistance you can provide.


Havahart recommends the following baits to attract armadillos:

Use a small plate to place the bait at the end of the live armadillo trap.


Meal worms


Spoiled meat


Overripe fruit
