Urgh, stupid Armadillos!

New task- until it's done:

GET RID OF ARMADILLO THAT LIVES UNDER THE BACK PATIO!!!!!!

Taking this piece of advice : "If you have an armadillo under your foundation, you may need to take additional steps to make sure your visitor leaves and does not come back. The best method is to build a “trap door” that will allow the armadillo to leave, but will not let it back into the burrow. A heavy cloth or lightweight section of wire mesh fencing placed over the hole and secured loosely at one side should allow any armadillo still inside the burrow to push its way out, but it wouldn’t be able to re-enter very easily. Combining the trap door with something smelly ought to double your chances of a successful removal."

Have secured one side of a small piece of leftover chain link fence over his burrow... would be nice to get him out in the next 8 days before we put up the other side of the fence and he's stuck in the yard LOL
