As the snow melts, some homeowners will have an unfortunate surprise this spring. Trails and tunnels running throughout your yard may indicate that another family has moved into your property over the past few months: moles.
What are Moles?
Moles are rat-like animals that live underground. When they arrive, the will dig tunnels throughout your yard, and can possibly ruin your landscaping and grass areas. While they’re not harmful, they can be pesky and annoying – and especially when they start tearing up your yard. Moles typically don’t eat your plants and buds; they’re more interested in the grubs from your soil.
Why Did My Yard attract Moles?
Moles are attracted to earthworms and grubs. When their other sources of food dry up, they may be attracted to your yard if you have a good food supply for them. To prevent moles, we recommend a chemical grub treatment that will kill the food moles typically dig to find.
How do I get rid of Moles in my Yard?
While there are several old remedies for getting rid of moles, the best (and safest) way is to hire a professional trapper. This will ensure that you’re safely removing the mole, not harming any other animals who walk by your yard, and not wasting your time on poisons or methods that won’t work.
