MOLE REMOVAL SERVICES
Michigan is home to two types of moles: the eastern mole and the star-nosed mole. The eastern mole is the most common mole active in Michigan.
Contrary to popular belief, the presence of moles in your yard is not an indication that you have a large grub problem. Earthworms make up about 95 percent of a mole’s diet, with grubs and other insects making up a much smaller portion.
Moles have a few primary tunnels they use regularly and may have many secondary tunnels that they use for foraging. Mole activity is most noticeable in the spring and fall when the soil is moist and easier for the moles to excavate. However, moles are active year-round.
Moles can cause considerable lawn damage, leaving mole hills and often causing brown grass-less streaks throughout the lawn. Moles can cause a lot of damage in a relatively short period of time, as they can dig up to 18 feet per hour.
The most effective way to remove moles from your yard is often accomplished by integrating the use of traps and bait placements. Our technicians will monitor the runs, marking the mole tunnels to identify the active runs and may use a combination of baits and/or traps as needed to successfully remove the moles in your yard.
Moles do not hibernate in the winter, however the colder weather does have an effect on the service offerings we provide for mole removal. As a result, Regal Pest Control offers mole removal services, typically, from April through October in Southeast Michigan. This schedule may vary slightly due to the weather, which again dictates our ability to conduct the mole services we offer.
Please let us know, in advance, if you have any sprinkler lines, electrical lines for landscape lighting or any other buried items throughout your yard that we should be aware prior to us beginning service.
Regal Pest Control will not be responsible for any damages caused to utility lines or any other items buried underground when we install traps in your yard. The types of traps we use and the depth at which we install our traps should not cause any issues with any underground lines or items, however notifying us in advance prevents any potential damages.
