Understanding Moles: What You Need to Know

Unique Mole Behavior and Appearance

Mole Behavior

Moles are solitary creatures and are often misunderstood due to their hidden lifestyle. Despite popular belief, moles are not blind; they possess small eyes capable of sensing light. Their bodies are adapted for their underground existence with fine hair that allows for easy movement in their tunnels.

Mole Tunneling

Moles can create tunnels at the rate of 100 feet per day. Once the tunnels are established, they can move 80 feet per minute. Tunnels are created because moles need to eat the equivalent of their body weight daily. A mole’s diet primarily consists of consuming insectivores with their primary food source being earthworms.

Year-Round Mole Activity

While moles move up and down in the soil column due to environmental conditions, it may appear that your moles have left your yard. Once the conditions become more favorable, moles will reappear. When this happens, we are only a phone call or text away. We will dispatch our technician to your property.

Frequently Asked Questions About Moles in Boonville

What makes trapping the most effective method for mole control?

Trapping directly removes moles from your property, unlike other methods that may not reach all the moles or only temporarily deter them. Our skilled technicians ensure that each trap is strategically placed and regularly checked to maximize success.

Can I prevent moles by using grub control?

While moles do eat grub worms, they primarily feed on earthworms. Therefore, grub control alone is not an effective method to deter mole activity. Comprehensive trapping remains the most effective way to control mole populations.

How often do you check the traps?

With our Basic Mole Trapping Plan, a seasoned technician will evaluate your property on a weekly basis while traps are installed (weather permitting) to inspect and relocate traps as needed which ensures optimal effectiveness.  Call us to discuss other options.

Are your mole control services safe for pets and children?

Yes, our mole control methods are designed with the safety of your entire family in mind, including pets and children. We use safe, non-toxic methods that focus on effective trapping.
