If you have an armadillo on your property then a good source of food is nearby. Armadillos forage mornings and evenings for food and are primarily insectivores. 90% of their diet consists of insects and insect larvae. However, they are also considered to be omnivores because they will eat both plants and animals. Their diet generally consists of insects, insect larvae (grubs), plants, bird and lizard eggs, seeds, some fruits, and worms. To a lesser degree they consume small lizards, snails, frogs, and dead animals. Some species of armadillo dine solely on ants and termites using their finely barbed, sticky tongue to catch a tongue full. They have poor eyesight with a highly developed sense of smell. It is said that armadillos are able to sense the movement of termites in the ground!
An armadillo that has burrowed around the foundation of a home can destroy the barrier that pest control operators create for pest control, and this could void the warranty on a termite contract. The pest control company may require you to rid your property of armadillos before they treat your property for termites.
