Publication Date: 05/10/1997

Take a ride on just about any road in Alabama and you are likely to see an armadillo belly-up on the side of the road. Armadillos were first noted in Alabama in the 1940s around Mobile County. Since then they have expanded their range to 59 of Alabama’s 67 counties. Only the rocky, mountainous region of northeastern Alabama is without armadillos. As armadillo populations expand, the possibility of negative encounters with humans increases. This publication is designed to give you some general information on armadillos, their damage, and their control.
