MOLE TRAPPING – MOLE CONTROL
Our approach to controlling a mole situation usually involves two (2) methods; Trapping & Baiting. The first step is active trapping in their tunnels using traps designed to kill them quickly & humanely. Then we strategically place a mole lure/bait underground which will attract and kill the moles. Either way, the problem is resolved. We charge a flat-rate fee for our mole control services and we have found this to be the most we can do as humans to have the upper hand in controlling the mole population in our yard.

It is shocking the amount of damage a mole can do to a beautiful lawn… and how quickly. Our mole control services can bring you quick relief. 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 a loner. On several occasions, two or even three moles have been trapped in the same yard, 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. 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). If you remove as much of their food source you will reduce how appealing your yard becomes.
