Eastern ground moles are not rodents, they are actually insectivores. Moles have a voracious appetite consuming 80% to 100% of their body weight every day in earthworms, grubs and various other types of ground dwelling insects. They find their food by tunneling through the soil, smelling and feeling for their next meal. The destructive capacity to your lawn can be extensive when you consider that ground moles do not hibernate and they can create a hundred feet of tunnels in just one day.
Moles make different types of tunnels. Primary feeding tunnels, exploratory tunnels and deep tunnels in which the mole uses for it's living area, latrine and food storage. Deep tunnels can be as deep as three feet underground.
Step (1) The Inspection:
A Pest Safari technician will come out to inspect and evaluate the moles on your property as well as any surrounding areas that may be prone for moles. We will locate the active feeding tunnels and determine if baits, traps, or a combination of the two will be the best solution for your problem.
Step (2) Baiting and/or Trapping:
Your Pest Safari technician will return and place baits or traps inside and along the active feeding tunnels within your yard. Once everything is in place we will return to your home in 24 to 48 hours after the preliminary service and dispose of any dead moles. At that point we will re-evaluate the activity and start the process over until all your moles are gone.
Step (3) Confirmation and Grub Treatment:
Once your Pest Safari technician has determined that there are no more moles in your yard, we will apply a treatment to your entire lawn for the control of grubs and ground dwelling insects. This treatment is necessary as moles will reoccupy a vacant tunnel system if food is abundant.
It is important not to treat your yard for insects prior to the eradication of the moles, as this will most likely force the mole to create more exploritory tunnels, damaging your yard even more as they search for food that isn't there.
