Behavior & Risk of Moles

If you have a mole problem in your yard, it’s best to call a professional mole exterminator to take care of it for you. Moles can cause a lot of damage to your yard if left unchecked. They tunnel underground, often uprooting plants and flowers in their path.

Yard Mole Removal-Are ground moles dangerous?

Like other animals, moles have been found to be very docile and largely safe. Although some bat raccoons, coyotes, skunks and foxes have carried out and spread rabid diseases no animal has proven this. The mole doesn’t bite people but it’s possible. Tell your doctor if there is an infection in your body that you need help. However, the bitten bone can heal by its own means, only in case of infection. The hills that mark Mole Tunnels can become extremely dangerous as the person can slip in a tunnel or get hurt.

Signs you have a mole problem

Moles living in lawns are usually visible in volcanic-shaped areas. The majority of lawns house one to two moles therefore you may be unable to target every mole in the family. Homes on or near golf courses are especially vulnerable since the moles are driven from that area seeking better food sources.

Moles dig two kinds of tunnels: underground runways and underground tunnels. A deep runway is typically 18 to 20 feet below the ground and moles typically use them during travels every day.

If you see signs of moles in your yard, you probably have a deep runway. Moles do not typically make a mound when creating their surface tunnels that build beneath the soil’s surface and the shallow tunnels are what cause the raised soil ridges that you often see in the lawn.

Yard Mole Removal

Is it legal to kill moles?

Yes, it is legal to kill moles in most states. If you have a mole problem in your yard, the best thing to do is to call a professional mole exterminator to take care of it for you. They will know how to safely and effectively set a mole trap and establish a mole control plan for your property.

Yard Mole Removal-Methods to get rid of Moles

There are a few different methods that you can use to get rid of moles in your yard. You can try traps, poison, gas cartridges or you can call a professional mole exterminator to take care of the problem for you.

Mole traps

If you decide to try traps, there are a few things that you should keep in mind. First, you need to find an active tunnel. You can do this by looking for fresh molehills. In most lawns or garden beds, the prime runway is the longest and straightest tunnel and is at least the width of your index finger. Once you’ve found an active tunnel, set the trap and wait for the mole to be caught.

How to set a mole trap to eliminate moles

Almost every type of mole trap will kill moles. Some do it more effectively than others and each type of mole trap has its own best practices associated with it. If you’re attempting mole control on your own, it’s a good idea to set traps using the best practice methods for the trap you’ve chosen.

Mole Exterminator

Mole Poison

Poison is another option that you can use to get rid of moles. There are a few different types of poison that you can use, but it’s best to call a professional to help you with this method. Poison can be dangerous if not used correctly, so it’s best to leave it to the professionals.

That said, baited earthworms usually work best. If you have one of several moles in the yard, this is one of the best toxic baits because it mimics a food source that moles love. Typically, it will not work with a larger infestation though.

Gas cartridges or machine

If you have a lot of moles, you may want to consider using gas cartridges. This method is best used by professionals, as it can be dangerous if not done correctly. Gas cartridges are placed in the mole hole and then ignited. This will kill moles in the immediate area only. Since the animal is buried, dead moles will not typically create a smell.

Yard Mole Removal Home Remedies to avoid:

When you are looking to get rid of moles from your yard, you may find some home remedies or anecdotal ways to do so. These techniques are discussed here. Those techniques may even have worked on a neighbor who swears. Before going any further, make it clear this molecular control technique has not been tested with any scientifically confirmed methods. You don’t have to rely only on this technique.

Moth Balls

Somehow, this method always seems to be thrown around as a home remedy to remove moles. It doesn’t work and is generally a waste of money.

Domestic Animals

LDogs and cats will not eliminate moles in your yard. In most cases, they will dig up areas of old mole activity and destroy the yard further. Caught moles by domestic animals also present risks to the animals. It should be noted, however, most kill traps and poison baits are designed to go into shallow tunnels and are, generally, pet safe.

Live Traps

If you have moles in your yard, trapping them with a live trap is the most time consuming way to rid yourself of the problem. Using this type of trapping method, you’ll need to check the trap regularly to ensure that there is no animal in the trap, then the moles will have to be relocated. In most jurisdictions, this is illegal because it simply transfers the moles in your yard to someone else’s.

Additionally, trapping moles in a live trap is difficult since the primary food source for them is earthworms and other insects found anywhere else in the soil. we advise against this time consuming method of control.

Grub Control

There are products available that will discourage moles from entering the yard. This is a good preventative method but will not remove moles that already have established themselves. To prevent moles properly, you’ll need to get rid of moles that have already found their way into the yard.

Mole Deterrents

Unknown to us, some pigeons had made our attic their home for years. The waste they had accumulated was downright disgusting - and, as I would soon discover, a severe health risk. Anyways, we only noticed the problem when I went to the attic to trace a leaky pipe. I was shocked by the amount of bird waste I saw. I promptly called this company, and they sent technicians to perform a full attic restoration. After they were done, you could not tell that I was dealing with a severe bird problem just the previous day. I was pleased with their service, and the price was worth it!

They will know how to safely and effectively set a mole trap and establish a mole control plan for your property.

Hiring a Professional Mole Control Service

Moles can be a nuisance to gardeners, thanks to the damage they often cause. If you have a mole infestation in your yard, it’s best to call professional mole control services to take care of it for you. Here are just a few of the reasons why you should call a professional mole exterminator:

-Moles can cause a lot of damage to your yard if left unchecked.

-Yard Mole Removal is a specialized skill

-Yard Mole Removal Products can be expensive and ineffective if not used properly

Inspection Costs

A mole inspection will take an expert visit to your house to check if a mole is in your area. There’s an initial phase of removal. Mole inspection is a typical procedure that enables experts to provide information about the next steps to be taken.

A person inspecting the house will find moles and see how they live or enter the house. Usually, inspection prices range between 50 and 100. The inspection is done first and trapping is placed where appropriate. All seized moles have been disposed of soon thereafter.

Most yard mole removal services, including ours, will inspect on the first day of service and include it in the cost of service. If the lawn has a problem with grubs, soil, or tunnels that won’t allow for bait, trapping, or gassing, we’ll let you know before any service takes place.

Mole control prices by frequency

In certain cases, the homeowner can choose an agreement to kill moles in their yard or garden. Many businesses provide annual, quarterly, or monthly visits. This frequent visit will save on the expense of pest control. One-time removals of medium infestations are typical $300-600. The season visit is on a yearly contract and may be booked on a 6-month basis as well as yearly. It costs between $420 and $525 annually. Another annual contract is more costly but provides better protection. A quarter contract costs $500-800 annually and an annual contract can cost $300 to $1200 yearly.

Yard Mole Removal Cost by Severity of Infestation

The number of moles in a property may influence the cost of extermination and removal. Tunnels are a big problem in some respects. As moles become larger, their hole size increases. An isolated mole infestation may have 1 or 2 moles. medium infestations might have a family infestation. Often infestation is divided into two to three families. Most infestations are small to moderate – so this expense is generally common. Multiple inspections are necessary to treat larger infestations which increase the cost.

Cost of repair Mole Damage

Sometimes moles damage homes or yards. Moles are often smashed on grass or in gardens. Tunneling under lawn and garden walls can destroy lawn roots, cause tree root damage and provide pests with favorable access. Once moles have been removed most owners will hire landscapers for damage. These procedures involve flatting veins, finding and filling holes, and restoring lawns. Untreated moles can damage the foundations of the house. The intricate tunnel beneath the ground is capable of breaking the freezing and thawing cycle of the foundation, which allows rain to accumulate within tunnels and causes cracks.

Pet Safe Mole Control

Pest control professionals often use traps that do not cause damage to domestic animals. These methods are regarded as safer homes since there is no harmful bait or fumes which could cause damage. Although the lethal trap exists, most businesses use the kind that goes beneath the lawn and into the tunnels or below the soil. The pest expert must be aware of the presence or absence of pets. You might be able to shift animals to an additional area or room to reduce the risk of injury.

If you have a mole problem in your yard, the best thing to do is to call a professional. Metro Wildlife and Pest is the best mole trapping service in this area. Their professional mole exterminators know how to properly set a mole trap and can take care of the problem for you quickly and efficiently.
