Moles

How do I get rid of moles?

Contrary to popular belief, baits, sonic chasers, repellants, mothballs and home remedies have no effect on moles. OPC will use an attractive and palatable bait called “Talpirid” which is scientifically proven to kill moles. The bait is designed to mimic an earthworm that can be easily identified by the mole.

We use a 3-Step Process to treat your problem.
Step 1: OPC will visit the property to map and evaluate the site to determine which runs are active.
Step 2: OPC will revisit the site to place the bait which mimics the earthworm in the active runs.
Step 3: Follow-up services will be performed to evaluate the results and determine if future baiting needs to occur.

Characteristics of Moles

What Do Moles Look Like?

Moles typically have rounded, furry bodies with very small – almost inconspicuous – ears and eyes, and powerful limbs used for digging.

Where Do Moles Live?

The Eastern Mole is the most common mole and can create chaos in your lawn and landscaping. Moles are generally more active in late winter and early spring when breeding is at its peak. However, moles do not hibernate, they remain active all year long and are very territorial.

The #1 food source for moles is earthworms, which make up about 90% of their diet followed by grubs, which make up about 5% of their diet. Moles find their meal by feeling the vibration of the earthworm moving through the soil.

Are Moles Dangerous?

Moles sure can create havoc in your lawn. Typically the nicer your lawn is the greater your chances of moles in your lawn. Why? A nice lawn means good soil and good soil translates into lots of earthworms and earthworms are the greatest food source for moles.

Did you know that moles typically eat between 80-100% of their body weight every day? Moles can create 15-18 feet of tunnels per hour and can travel 80 feet per minute in existing tunnels.

"I have the Four Seasons plan with OPC. I am so pleased with this. I had a problem with big black ants and this plan has gotten rid of them. I have peace of mind about pests now."
Pamela Troutman
"We have been OPC customers for several years. They check for termites and we also have the internal check for bugs. They have immediately responded when we have had a problem especially with silverfish. This year we added the mosquito control. The mosquito population is definitely down and a side benefit is we have no flies this year. OPC is easy to deal with and professional in dealing with our pests. Watch out bugs, we are OPC customers.” "
Gary Kingry
"Adam is polite, professional, patient, and knowledgeable about his work. He not only set traps to catch what appears to be a single mouse, he also located possible entry points. For sure I will advise friends and family who have any pest issues to call OPC."
Anne Sheffer
"Krissy (spelling might be wrong, sorry) was on time and was very pleasant throughout the whole experience. She informed me of what she was applying in terms of chemicals and how it was child and pet friendly and the process of getting rid of the ants. I had always heard great things about OPC and that first appointment cemented those positive things. I'm a happy customer now and will be moving forward."
