Vicki Ferguson of Rockmart tells the Rome News-Tribune that she first noticed her lawn was dying in patches. There were holes everywhere. She thought the damage was the work of grub worms, moles or gophers.
She says a landscape specialist, Brent Cooper, was the first to tell her that armadillos were responsible. The unwanted visitors had built several tunnels around her home.
Rockmart is about 45 miles northwest of Atlanta, in Polk County.
