Mole Control, Trapping & Removal Services

We can rid you of Mole problems safely and efficiently

Did you look outside your house only to notice that the beautiful grass in your yard has been replaced by unsightly, uneven ground? This oddly deformed landscape is more than likely due to moles making tunnels just underneath the surface. Moles love to spend all of their time under the cold, wet, grass, looking for nutritious treats like earthworms and grubs. They are even known to be making tunnels, searching for food, for up to 100 feet in a single day. They are known to travel on their own which makes controlling them far easier than controlling other pesky animals.

Mole’s tunnels are an annoying yard problem for any prideful homeowner, but one that can easily be fixed with the help of Trutech’s mole removal experts. You can ensure that these critters are no longer looking for food in your yard by implementing Trutech mole control. Using our mole removal services will help you keep your yard looking as pristine as the rest of your home without lifting a finger.

Whether you are searching for mole control, trapping, or removal services, you can be confident that you are doing it in the most environmentally sensitive way. With each passing day, a mole can make 100 feet more of tunnels covering your yard, so don’t wait to reach out to Trutech for all of your wildlife removal needs.

APPEARANCE

Some of the most distinguishing mole characteristics include their long, pointed snouts and broad forepaws. Though they appear to lack eyes, the organs are simply hidden in their fur and may even be covered with a thin membrane of skin. Moles are velvety gray to dark brown in color, and they generally grow about 6 inches long. Their large hands are slightly webbed and tipped with sharp claws that make them proficient diggers.

DIET

As insectivores, moles typically eat invertebrates found within the shallow layers of soil. Their diet commonly includes earthworms, grubs, beetle larvae, and ants. Moles eat 70 to 100 percent of their body weight every day in order to acquire enough energy to power their intense digging activities. Occasionally, they eat seeds for sustenance but rarely consume bulbs or tubers.

HABITAT

Cool, damp soil and areas of loosely packed dirt where worms and grubs can be found in abundance are preferred mole habitats. They are unable to live in hard, compacted soil or areas with dry, sandy dirt because these terrains are not suitable to digging and lack their favored foods. Their burrows consist of a series of interconnected deep and shallow tunnels, as well as comfortable dens lined with plant matter.

Large populations are rare, as no more than three to five moles inhabit the same acre of land. Even so, they are capable of digging tunnels up to 100 feet long in a single day, and their voracious appetites mean they are constantly on the move in search of food. Well-kept lawns, golf courses, and public parks often have the perfect soil consistency and harbor plentiful populations of grubs and worms.

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

Gardens, farmlands, grassy fields, and golf courses all suffer the effects of mole infestations. Since they excavate dirt near the surface, moles often create tunnels that deform landscapes. Additionally, the roots of grass and other plants become damaged as moles scoop away soil in search of food.

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

Keeping moles out of yards and gardens often entails modifying the landscape to make it inhospitable. This can be accomplished by removing access to food sources like worms, grubs, and larvae in the soil, or by compacting the soil with a heavy roller to make digging too difficult. Moles can be kept away from garden plots by installing fencing buried at least a foot into the ground, as well.
