How Does Yard Gard Armadillo Deterrent Work for You?


Our Process is Unique But Simple

  • Yard Gard Armadillo repellent is made with two main components:
    • The Pellet & the Active Ingredients
      • for the effectiveness and
      • your easy and simple application to your lawn.
  • Yard Gard's ingredients are placed inside the pellet; while some ingredients are attached to the outside of the pellet;
    • the pellet is then encased with a water-soluble coating agent-
    • which assures you of fresh repelling ingredients when Yard Gard is applied to your lawn. 
      • (Water dissolves the coating agent which then start releasing the ingredients to start repelling animals.)
  • Watering your lawn causes the proven and effective ingredients to be slowly released into your lawn as the water-soluble coating shell is dissolved, yielding you the most effective, long lasting results with fresh ingredients each time your lawn is watered.
  • The ingredients are absorbed into your lawn over months, therefore effectively protecting your yard from pests for the longest time period.



How is Our Process Advantageous?

  • Natural ingredients will decay quickly when exposed to the elements
  • Yard Gard products are packed with active ingredients - up to 50% more than most other products.
  • Yard Gard's active ingredients are inside the pellet keeping them fresh and from exposure to the elements until they are released into the soil by watering the pellets.
  • Yard Gard is comprised of natural/organic food grade oils, spices, and minerals
  • Yard Gard is Safe: No harsh man-made chemicals used; it won't harm the environment and  it's safe to use around children and household pets.
  • Yard Gard has stood the test!  See the double blind test evaluation results below

Yard Gard Test Results:   Activity  vs. Number of Days

  • Yard Gard test results are based on double-blind studies.
  • Simply put: The double-blind study is where... 
    • the people applying the products do not know the formulas,
    • they only know the product by an ID number.
    • As time passes they record the results of the ID number test area daily for a 100 day period,
    • After the testing time is completeed and all test area results are recorded;
    • the formulas are then revealed to observe the best formulas.
    • (This removes any bias toward any formula.)
  • The double blind studies (100 days each test asite)
    • were performed over a 2 year period and
    • the formulas and ingredients  were not revealed until after all studies were completed.
  • Yard Gard formulas & the competitor products were applied in equal manner to the different  test lawns. 
    • (No distintion made to identify product other than the sequential ID numbering of products.)
  • All animal activity results are documented for the evaluation time period. (100 days)
  • After the evaluation period ended,
    • these animal activity results were plotted on graphs and
    • graph samples are displayed here for your consideration.
  • After graph were plotted, the different product formulas and names were then revealed.


The "effectiveness rating" ranges from 90% to 100% and were depending on four keys conditions:

  • the amount of Yard Gard product applied to the treated area
  • the amount of water applied to the treated area.
  • the number of animals (armadillos) foraging in the treated area.
  • the amount or thickness of dead grass (thatch) in the treated area.


Deterrent Principle

  • Burrowing animals have a heightened sense of smell;...
    • 100 times greater than humans.
  • One third of the armadillo's brain (Olfactory lobe) is associated with the sense of smell;
    • therefore they have a  very keen sense of smell.
    • (Example: The armadillo can smell a grub that is located six inches under-ground.)
  • Yard Gard ingredients are very potent & irritating to the senses of smell & taste of these burrowing animals.
  • As the animals dig for food ...
    • they are conditioned or trained to associate the smell of your treated yard with discomfort.
  • This is "Operant Conditioning": Made famous by Pavlov when he conditioned dogs to salivate when they heard the food bell ring.
  • Animals with higher senses of smell are quickly conditioned or trained to leave the treated area.
