You must have moles tearing up your lawn. Our mole control services can bring you relief quickly. This is one of the few services that can cross-over between wildlife control & pest control. There is an easy way to explain this…
The mole lives in the seclusion of underground burrows, rarely coming to the surface. Although most people believe their yard is overrun with moles, moles are considered to be loner. On several occasions two or even three moles have been trapped at the same spot, but that does not necessarily mean they had been living together in a particular burrow. Networks of runways made independently occasionally join otherwise separate burrows. Because of their food requirements, moles must cover a larger amount of area than do most animals that live underground.
In wet weather, runways are very shallow; during a dry period they range somewhat deeper, following the course of earthworms.
Our approach to control a mole situation usually involves two methods. First we will trap on active tunnels using underground mole kill traps. Simultaneously, we strategically place mole bait underground to attract the moles and once the eat the bait they die. Either way, the problem is resolved.
Did you know moles spend most of their lives alone and underground in their tunnels. Moles are such loners, in fact, that three to five moles per acre is considered a lot. Moles spend their time digging tunnels and hunting for food. A permanent tunnel is usually about 2 inches in diameter and 8 to 12 inches below the surface, while temporary tunnels are usually right under the surface of the ground.
It is a misconception that moles eat the roots of plants. They are actually after the earthworms that are found in garden soil. Moles love earthworms so much that they eat nearly their body weight worth of earthworms per day. Moles also consume insect larvae (grubs).
