Mole removed from Madison, ConnecticutMoles can destroy a lawn seemingly overnight. Connecticut is home to the Eastern mole, and star nosed mole. The Eastern moles are more common in CT. The Eastern spends most of its life underground. After rain it moves through shallow tunnels searching for food, such as Grubbs, insect larvae, and earthworms. It retreats to its permanent tunnels during drought or cold weather. These tunnels are usually 10 inches or deeper. Moles do not hibernate they remain active throughout the winter. They are extremely territorial and fights between rivals can be to the death. Most never see the mole just the damage it leaves behind. Mole pest control.

Mole damage:

Most of the damage caused by moles is due to their tunneling leaving mounds throughout manicured lawns. They will push up the soil just below the surface of the grass making ridges in the lawn. They can tunnel at and extremely rapid rate 100 feet or more per night is not uncommon. The tunneling will also damage root systems of plants, and also cause patio walkways to cave in. The tunnels made by moles are also used by another small destructive animal the vole. Voles (field mouse)  will eat roots and quickly destroy ornamental plants and flowerbeds. Trees can also be killed by voles. Voles will chew the bark at or below ground level stessing the tree. To determine if you have both moles and voles, vole tunnels will have half-dollar size holes to the surface. Moles rarely will break through to the surface, this is caused by the vole. Mole removal can help to deter voles by taking away their “subway system”created for them by the moles. Our mole pest control trapping techniques will also catch voles, and we also provide a vole trapping program.

Getting rid of moles:

The best way to get rid of moles is by mole trapping. There are many different devices that claim to repel moles, but I have yet found one that works. Using an insecticide to kill Grubbs may help, but their diet consists of mostly earthworms. Mole control can be a difficult task for the do-it-yourselfer. Trap placement, and proper trap set up is extremely important. Knowing which yard mole  tunnels to trap is critical when conducting mole removal. Finding the active mole tunnels takes experience and practice.
