QUESTION:

I think I have a vole/mole infestation. Was wondering if you guys can help?

-Wilmington, NC

ANSWER:

Yes, Trutech provides mole and vole services. A technician will do a full inspection of the property to determine exactly which animal is causing damage. We will then establish a 10-14 day plan to trap and remove the moles or voles. Once the initial problem is under control, we will use trapping, baiting and deterrents on a recurring basis to control the population and prevent re-infestation.


QUESTION:

I have some sort of burrowing creature in my backyard (as evidenced by the linear dirt mound running from the deck to a planting area where grass belongs). I have not actually seen what is doing the burrowing, just the effects. Can you help and what options do I have?

-Chantilly, VA

ANSWER:

If you are not seeing any egress/ingress to these mounds, you are probably dealing with moles. When moles burrow and tunnel a few feet under the ground they will excavate that dirt to the surface, causing the mounds. Only when the moles tunnel a few inches under the ground will you see the raised tunnel that will travel just below the surface.
