Moles are truly interesting creatures. They live underground most of the time. They have no visible ears and small eyes. Their cylindrical bodies and front claws allow them to almost “swim” through soil. Their tiny eyes result in very poor sight so they search all day for worms and insect larvae that they find by the sense of touch and smell. Moles often burrow near the surface, creating a complex network of interconnected chambers, visible as bumps in the dirt known as mole hills.
These hills and tunnels are the primary reason why moles can be a nuisance. They can leave these ridged tunnels and molehills all over your lawn, ruining your nice landscaped yard.
Because moles live underground, they can not be controlled via live cage trapping like groundhogs. There are no traps designed that can catch them alive. All traps are lethal traps, but there are humane ways to prevent moles from grazing on your lawn or property. At Guardian Termite & Pest Control, we’re all about that. We offer mole services using Yard Gard!
Here’s how it works!
