make 'em sneeze


Weekly Gardening Tip



To 'evict' Armadillos from your yard, toss ground black pepper into their burrows.

Don't be cheap, add a handful of it  ;-)

Wait a few days and close the burrow with soil.

  4. Simple, just set up the cage on front of their burrow. they don't see well, and just walk right into it.
