Many of New York's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving New York's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Mount Vernon Wildlife Removal Tip: Do mothballs or ammonia help repel armadillos?

Many people wondered whether the mothballs and the ammonia really help in getting rid of armadillos. We tried to throw mothballs and ammonia balls into these small dredgers holes but didn't still work. Many people choose to use this method of mothballs because they are small enough and produce very strong chemical odor and they can be scattered around the fence and dugged hole without having issues. The problem is that armallido will not do anything around the mothballs because they have strong sense and can detect substance. There is evidence that mothballs will not work because Columbia tattoos will not work at all.

People also try using things like human hair when it comes to a substance that can act as a repressive substance. The theory behind the use of mothballs is that people consider armadillos as predators and when used, they will scare armadillos but it will not work. When it comes to the use of the scent of predators, it's good to know that armadillo has a thick skin and it is difficult to catch them, so there are only a small number of predators regarding armadillos.


First, we need to find out what the mothballs are and what their contents are:

Mothballs are small balls of chemical pesticides.
It consists of naphthalene, however, it has been discovered that this chemical is flammable and it was instead replaced with dichlorobenzene.
Once inhaled its Ingredients can cause serious health problems for a long time.


Ammonia is a compound including Nitrogen and hydrogen.
Its a Colorless gas with a drink sharp odor.
We have categorized it as a hazardous chemical under strict supervision during production or storage.

Mothballs and ammonia resistant's

The answer to the issue and questions by everyone is Simply No, neither mothball nor ammonia can be used to get rid armadillo. We could subdue those small digging bulldozers, but what we do not know is that they were smart. They will refrain from mothballs balls and accidentally poison, so this repellants will be ignored by them.

Why is this inefficiency

Now we know that the balls are mothballs and ammonia, we can now determine if this repellants are effective to get rid of armadillos. We should be aware that armadillos have a better sense of smell using this mentioned chemicals will not affect them in any way even if it seems difficult for them they will dig another hole that wasn't spread with ammonia and mothballs. So no. making use of this repellents wouldn't work even though they contains very powerful chemicals.
