MOLE 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 likely not related to the population of grubs present. Earthworms make up about 95 percent of a mole’s diet, with grubs and other insects making up a much smaller portion of their diet.

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.

EFFECTIVE MOLE REMOVAL SERVICES

The most effective way to remove moles from your yard is often accomplished by integrating the use of traps and repellents.

Our technicians will monitor the mole tunnels to identify the active tunnels and will use a combination of repellent placements and will set traps as needed to successfully remove the moles in your yard.
