Mole coming out from the ground in a lawn - Mole Control


Moles might be small and elusive, but their burrowing can cause significant problems. From damaging your lawn to compromising structural integrity, effective mole control is essential to address these issues promptly. Here’s why:

1. Save Your Lawn and Garden

Moles dig tunnels that can ruin your lawn and garden, leading to soil erosion and uneven ground. They also damage plant roots. By controlling moles, you keep your yard looking great and your plants healthy.

2. Prevent Costly Structural Damage

Moles’ digging can weaken patios, driveways, and foundations, causing cracks and expensive repairs. Addressing mole problems early helps protect the structure of your property and save on repair costs.

3. Protect Your Landscaping Investment

You’ve put time and money into your landscaping, but moles can undo your efforts by uprooting plants and disturbing flower beds. Removing moles ensures your investment in your yard remains intact and beautiful.

How to Spot Mole Activity

Detecting mole activity early can help prevent significant damage to your property. Here are key indicators that moles might be present in your yard:

1. Raised Ridges and Molehills

Look for raised ridges running through your lawn and molehills, which are small mounds of soil created as moles dig tunnels. These visible signs suggest active tunneling beneath the surface, indicating the need for pest mole removal.

2. Damaged Plant Roots

Notice if plants appear wilted or unhealthy for no apparent reason. Moles can disturb plant roots while digging, leading to stressed and damaged vegetation.

3. Soft, Spongy Ground

Walk around your yard and check for areas where the ground feels unusually soft or spongy. This can indicate extensive underground tunneling that disrupts the soil structure.

  • Garden Damage

  • Uneven Soil
