Local Mole Control
Keep Your Property Free of Moles With Lawn Pride
Lawn Pride has years of experience and extensive expertise in lawn care and the issues property owners face every season. Moles are a common problem that is difficult to see and even more challenging to evict. Fortunately, their tunnels clearly indicate these burrowing pests have invaded your yard. Our service professionals can eliminate your mole problem using our Mole Control Program. This pest control program for moles is scientifically designed and tested to be as effective as possible and involves two applications about two or three weeks apart. We have special training to let us map a mole’s runways and determine where to place bait most accurately and reap the best results. With our Mole Control Guarantee, you get our promise to remove moles from your lawn within 30 days following a second application. In other words, if moles are still active in your lawn 30 days after your last application, our team will treat it for moles again without charging you.
Find a Solution by Understanding Mole Invasions
Many people confuse moles and voles for each other because their names sound so similar, but Lawn Pride gladly clears up this miscommunication. A clear distinction between moles and voles is each animal’s diet. Voles are vegetarians or herbivores, and grass stems and leaves make up the majority of their diet. On the other hand, moles are meat-eaters, eat insects, grubs, and earthworms. We’ve provided more essential information about these invasive animals below for your benefit:
- Moles are designed as underground creatures, built for life in soil from their snouts to their tails, with tiny, beady eyes and ears that aren’t visible. They have claws on their large, paddle-like front feet to dig their way through the ground, searching for earthworms, ants, beetle grubs, and other insects.
- Earthworms are a mole’s primary food source. People tend to assume they have a grubworm problem if their lawn also has a mole problem, but this is a myth. While moles do eat soil-dwelling insects like grubworms when they come across them, their diet is mostly earthworms. Trying to control moles in your yard by controlling grubs won’t work.
- Moles follow their food source, so you will typically see surface mole tunnels more often in the spring and fall because the ground is moist, and earthworms migrate closer to the surface. Conversely, as the soil gets frozen or dry and earthworms go deeper underground, moles will follow them.
How Do I Identify Mole Damage?
You can spot many common signs indicating a mole infestation, including mounds of soil shaped like volcanoes, raised soil ridges about four inches wide and one inch high, and soft areas around your lawn that collapse if you step on them. Few things are as frustrating for homeowners investing in their lawns as molehills and runways appearing. Moles can extend surface runways up to 100 feet each day and cause mole lawn damage at an astounding rate, making it imperative to get rid of moles in your lawn. These creatures may use surface runs daily or revisit them irregularly. A mole’s surface runways connect underground to deep runways, letting them travel between their nest and surface runways easily. They deposit the soil from their deep tunnels through short vertical tunnels to the surface, creating volcano-like mounds. When you see any signs of an infestation, Lawn Pride can help you with our pest control for moles. We can determine if you need mole control or vole control by identifying the specific pest in your yard.
