What You Should Know About Moles

How they can impact your oasis and the best practices to help control them.





Throughout the spring, the end of the summer, and into the beginning of the fall, you may experience different waves of activity on your lawn. Destruction is taking place as moles are burrowing their way to new destinations. Even mowing your lawn feels a little rougher than normal, going over treacherous tunnels that are zig-zagging around your property. 

WHAT ISSUES DO MOLES CAUSE?

Mole activity near the surface and excess tunneling can lead to damaged roots throughout your property. This can result in brown patches being left behind, leaving a less appealing look to your yard. A lumpy lawn and potential holes created from moles can contribute to personal injury. Aesthetically speaking, we all want our lawns to look great, but moles can get in the way of homeowners achieving their dream oasis.


SIGNS OF MOLES IN YOUR LAWN

mole damage

  • Raised tunnels crossing throughout your yard

  • Dead or discolored grass along a particular pathway

  • Areas in your lawn that have loose soil or a "squishy" feeling 


BEST PRACTICES TO HELP CONTROL MOLES 

If you have tried trapping moles in your lawn, you know it can be a hassle and not always a successful result. Mowing or working around the traps is an obstacle in itself and not having to worry about your pets tampering with traps can give you additional peace of mind. As moles live beneath the surface, it is difficult to fully prevent them, but if you can control the population with pet-friendly mole products and keep their activity to a minimum it will help in the long term.
