From the GM: Try these wildlife control measures before going RAMBO

By now most of us have been exposed to the damage Armadillos can do to one’s property. They’re hard to catch and even harder to control. Some homeowners resort to shooting the Armadillos until they are gone or no longer visiting the homeowner’s property. While this practice is not condemned by our Rules & Regulations it is often frowned upon by neighbors and other village residents.

Shooting Armadillos may be the most fun remedy; however it is not the only solution. There

are plenty of other less disturbing methods you can use to rid your yard of Armadillos. Below are a few reasonable examples:

Use natural Armadillo control methods. (Cayenne Pepper/Predator Urine/ Family Pets)

Put cayenne pepper around your home or garden. Spread it on the ground, and wait to see if sniffing the pepper up its nose deters the armadillo. You can also purchase a container of predator urine. You can find these at area hunting stores; one popular product is called Shake-Away.

Set live traps to catch the Armadillos.

Use large cages and set multiple ones. Set them by burrow openings, and consider putting boards in a “V” shape extending out from them to lure the animal in. Bait the traps with nylon stockings full of earthworms. You may catch other animals in there as well, but rest assured you will probably catch your culprit.

Hire a professional to remedv the problem.

You can go onto the internet and find many companies that specialize in treating Armadillos. A couple of local companies I found with a quick online search are Critter Control 417-413-2884 and Professional Wildlife Removal 417-429-1425.

Squirrels have also been a problem of late for the homes along Cedar Ridge Way. When looking into the squirrel situation we found a prominent reason squirrels were getting into the homes was the access to the roof from the surrounding trees. To help with squirrels and to protect the homes from damage, the POA has decided to do a “5-year cutback” on all trees at Cedar Ridge. In the upcoming weeks we will walking the property to identify which trees need to be cut, trimmed or left alone. To date we have visited 12 units and have identified 5 trees that need to be cut down and 11 trees that need trimmed Baning the unforeseen, we look forward to having this project completed by the end of the year.

Thank you,

Bill Hasler
