Armadillos are carriers of Leprosy, or so I`ve heard

I live in between Carbondale and Marion, see them dead on the side of the road weekly.

They're all over down here. Guy down the road had one in his garage last Fall.

They're a lot farther north than "southern" Illinois. I drove to Florida last summer. As we crossed into Missouri, well before getting into Ilinois I mentioned to my daughter we were probably going to see some armadillos on the road. Within 15 minutes we saw one, and we were still north of Hannibal.

No idea on what they're like east of the river but they were everywhere west of it.

there was a dead one on the road out to our gun range (Carmi Rifle Club) last week.

Hey neighbor! The numbers of them sure do seem to be increasing don't they?

Anyone know a good bait for them? I've got one under part of the house right now and nothing I've put in the trap seems to have done the trick so far.
