Control Moles

The mole lives in the seclusion of underground burrows, coming to the surface only rarely, and then often by accident. Moles remove many damaging insects and grubs from lawns and gardens.However, their burrowing habits disfigure lawns, destroy flower beds, tear up the roots of grasses, and create havoc in small garden plots. Moles leave volcano-shaped hills that are often made up of clods of soil.

The mole hills are pushed up from the deep tunnels and may be 2 to 24 inches tall. The number of mole hills is not a measure of the number of moles in a given area. Over-watering your lawn can bring moles closer to the ground surface, making tunnels more visible. Reducing the amount of turf grass on your property will also reduce the visible signs of damage from moles. In the long run, converting lawn to gardens, paths, hedgerows, or other more natural habitats can save you time and money as well as provide habitat for beneficial birds and butterflies.
