We use only certified and humane trapping equipment and methods to safely and cheaply deal with your mole infestation. No moles will suffer, and no moles will escape. Trust us to deal with your mole problem in a way you can be proud of.
Mole Control Is Easy – But It Takes Experience
The key to dealing with a mole infestation is volume. We find EVERY tunnel and set as many traps as possible to ensure that the moles are caught quickly and cheaply. Moles move fast, so it is important to get ahead of them on the first visit.
Our technicians are trained and highly skilled at locating the active tunnels and setting up a system of traps that the moles cannot bypass.
It can be hard to keep moles off your property. However, a few options exist. Soils are available that worms and grubs will avoid, and in turn, so will the moles. Additionally, if you know the moles are coming from a certain direction, we can put a relatively cheap barrier in the ground to keep them at bay.
We always get asked this question. The reality is that moles just keep digging and tunneling until they find ground rich with grubs and worms, it has very little to do with how you maintain your property above ground.
Moles are found on every continent except Antarctica and South America. They live in grasslands, urban areas, gardens, grasslands, sand dunes, mixed woodland or any area that has soil where they can dig tunnels. They do tend to stay away from areas with acidic soil and mountainous areas, though, according to The Young People’s Trust for the Environment (YPTE).
Moles use tunnels to travel, but tunnels are more than just underground highways. Moles dig special chambers at the ends of tunnels that serve as bedrooms and birthing areas. Sometimes moles will live in a series of tunnels for generations before moving.
Moles have kitchens, as well, in tunnel chambers. They eat mostly earthworms, and keep them alive and immobile by biting their heads, and then store them in the chamber. As many as 470 worms have been recorded in one chamber, according to the Mammal Society.
Moles spend most of their lives alone and underground in their tunnels. Moles are such loners, in fact, that three to five moles per acre (7 to 12 hectares) is considered a lot, according to Internet Center for Wildlife Damage Management.
Moles spend their time digging tunnels and hunting for food. A permanent tunnel is usually about 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter and 8 to 12 inches (20 to 30 cm) below the surface, while temporary tunnels are usually right under the surface of the ground.
During breeding season, males will enlarge their tunnel to more territories to find females to mate with. Once the breeding is done, a spherical nest chamber lined with dry plant material is created.
A female mole gives birth to three to four hairless babies at a time. By 14 days old, the mole babies, called pups, will start to grow hair. At four to five weeks, the pups are weaned, and at 33 days they leave the nest. By five to six weeks, pups leave their mother and their home tunnel completely. Moles typically live three years, according to YPTE.
