We visit the property to map and evaluate the site to determine which runs are active.
We then place the bait which mimics earthworms in the active runs, which will draw the moles to it.
Follow-up services will be performed to evaluate the results and determine if future baiting needs to occur.
The best way to get rid of moles is to take away their food source (earth worms). Unfortunately, earth worms are good for your soil! So, the best way to get rid of moles is to bring in a mole exterminator that can safely treat for moles.
A mole is a small burrowing mammal with dark velvety fur, a long muzzle, and very small eyes. They tunnel underground (making a mess of yards) in search of food.
The mole’s favorite meal includes earthworms, grubs, snails, spiders, small animals, and other insects. Because moles require a lot of food for energy, they eat more than their one-pound body weight in food each day. Moles will also consume around 60%-100% of their body weight in earthworms, grubs, and insects every single day.
Since moles are basically an underground rodent, you will see evidence of them first. The volcanic-shaped soil mounds and raised tunnel ridges in your yard are tell-tale signs of moles living in your lawn.
Moles typically have rounded, furry bodies. While most of their bodies are covered with black to gray fur, they have prominent, hairless snouts that extend nearly a half-inch in front of their mouths. Other identifying features are their hairless front claws that are oversized in relation to the rest of their bodies. Since they spend so much time underground, their eyes are extremely small and concealed in fur to keep out dirt.
