They will then connect a source of carbon monoxide to the container that will bring the poor creature to its instant death. • Lethal Injection- Exterminators will use lethal injections when killing wildlife creatures. However, only the licensed medical practitioner can administer this. Exterminators will need to employ the service of a licensed veterinarian to give lethal injection to these creatures. • Poison-remember that there are no commercialized fumigants or toxicants designed for armadillo. This is due to the fact that killing them is prohibited in some states. They are a vital part of the ecosystem especially in terms of controlling the population of the insects.
