I seem to recall seeing some 1200+ FPS air rifles on the market, decent prices. I suspect a 17 or 22 cal traveling at 1200 FPS would do them in.

I have both a Gamo and a Stoeger that fit that category. Work great on tree rats, but they haven't learned how to up-armor yet. Can't say how they'd work on a dillo.


I wouldn't bet on the .177 air gun taking out a adult Dillo. At least not humanely. It might be a pest but still deserves to be put down quickly. They are pretty tough.

A pellet rifle is just not going to get the job done . 22 cal rifle or handgun at a minimum .

The suckers have taken over the position of most road kills from the possums in the last 2 or 3 years it seems.

The problem is that the grubs will come back in a year, then same problem.
I treated for grubs so I could get rid of moles, now, grubs are back and moles worse than ever.

I'm pretty much a city boy and back in 1968 I was in basic training at Ft. Sam in San Antonio. One day they dumped us off out in the country for reasons I don't recall . I was all by myself , when I heard this rustling noise coming from behind a large bush. Didn't know whether it was a bear or a rattler. Turned out to be an armadillo. First one and last one I ever saw. Curious looking thing .
