This boy has a hole that goes under the lattice under the porch and onward. He comes out and eats my sparse grass, or uproots it.

Please?? Tricks for removing him from the premise, dead or alive. And a $50 trap ain't gonna work...

If you can not shoot him, my suggestion is to put something out to kill the grub worms.  I think the best thing is Milky Spores but you can also use "Grub Away", etc.  He is digging holes and pulling the grass up to get to the grubs.  Kill the food source and he will leave.

As WIX said..... A good dose of lead poison works best and is permanent.  In the mean time, a handfull of mothballs down the hole may make him look for a new home.  If you know he is in the hole (usually a good dog will tell you), a garden hose running water into the hole will flush him out.... Now, stand ready with the lead.  They are fast.  Shoot him in the hole and it doulbles as the grave -- no digging!!!

Mack, I you go the lead poisoning route, what will be your time and temp when you cook him? Or will that be on the Recipes forum?

OK... Got another way a friend told me today. 

 

Amadillo Trap:  Take a 12" diameter PVC pipe, 2-3 ft long and capped on one end, bury it cap side down and virtical with opening flush with ground, dump a box of earthworm bait in the bottom.  Next morning go collect the Dillo.  They crawl in but cant crawl or dig out.

 

Sounds like a lot of work, but could be funny if it worked.  I thought you might need to drill a few weep holes in bottom to let rain drain out. Oh and use a .22 not a 12ga.  That would detroy the trap!
