DO YOU HAVE A MOLE NUISANCE CONCERN?
Even though moles are small rodents, they can cause major damage to yards with their tunneling and molehills. Molehills are dirt from deeper tunnel excavation. Mole activities can cause irreversible damage to plant’s root systems which may inhibit the ability of the plant or grass to get nutrients from the soil, causing the plant to die. A bug infestation in your yard can easily attract moles as they feed on insects. Moles use their nose to detect movement and scent their prey and other moles. Against popular belief, moles are actually not blind, but their eyesight is very poor, and they can only detect movement and differentiate from light to dark. Moles have internal ears and they are very small to prevent them from getting clogged up and damaged during digging.
HOW DO WE GET RID OF MOLE ANIMALS?
The only proven method to get rid of moles is by trapping, habitat modification, and exclusion. Against popular believe moles will not respond to repellents, strobe lights, music, mothballs, or ammonia. There are a few chemicals available, but the risk is that they will not only get rid of the mole but also of the plants. Even when using natural solutions like water, too much of it can damage your garden as much, if not more than some chemicals.
The safest method of removal is to contact a qualified professional to take care of the mole problem. Our Wildlife control specialists are trained to humanely eradicate troublesome moles from the property.
WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON DISEASES SPREAD BY MOLES?
In rare cases, moles can transmit rabies. The insect parasites moles carry are a greater cause for concern. Ticks, fleas, mites can transmit numerous diseases, like Lyme, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, etc.
WHAT ARE SOME PREVENTATIVE MEASURES I CAN TAKE?
To help limit the moles’ food supply, use products labeled to control grubs, ants, mole crickets, and other lawn insects. Moles (as well as earthworms) like soft, damp earth, so avoid over-watering your lawn and keep it on the dry side to limit mole and earthworm activity.
