Although moles are not usually dangerous, they can be a big nuisance and end up digging up your entire yard.
Mole Control, Trapping, and Elimination
Let’s face the facts: Moles aren’t cute. Known for their large, sharp nails, they dig with their forepaws to tunnel underground. These small rodent-like animals typically grow to between 5 and 7 inches long. As moles tunnel at an astonishing speed for their size (about 1 foot per minute), they push dirt to the surface. This results in unsightly mounds around your lawn or landscaping, and these unrooted plants can invite weeds to grow and kill your lawn or other vegetation.
When are moles most active?
Moles spend most of their time underground and are insectivores that usually feed on insects. Because moles don’t hibernate and are active all year long, you need mole control to keep them in check. Even though mole activity lessens in periods of cold or extremely wet weather, these mammals continue to burrow beneath the earth through the lower levels of their tunnel systems.
How do I get rid of moles?
Moles are a major nuisance that should not be left unchecked, especially if you want to protect your yard or landscaping. DIY methods lead to frustration. (There’s a reason it’s called “whack a mole,” after all.) Improper use of poisons or other methods could be dangerous to your family or pets.
