Moles

Nothing is more frustrating to a homeowner than to spend lots of time and money creating a beautiful green lawn, only to have a mole come through and tear all that hard work up. Then you spend weeks trying to rid your yard of moles with baits, traps, and repellents with no results. 

If you are tired of dealing with moles, contact the professionals at Lewis Pest Control. Our technicians have the training and experience to remove moles from your yard.

Moles are not rodents, but carnivores, eating almost their entire body weight a day in insects, grubs, and earthworms. Because their metabolism is so high, they are constantly tunneling through the yard and gardens looking for the next meal. Because of this, most people think that their yard is infested with many moles. In reality, it is often the work of just 1-2 destructive moles.

How Do We Get Rid of Moles?

At Lewis Pest Control we remove moles from your yard mainly through trapping. There are baits that are effective, and we do occasionally use them in certain situations, but trapping allows us to show our results.  This can be difficult because you have to know where to set the traps. 

Moles have 2 tunnel systems, travel, and feeding. The feeding tunnels are what get everyone’s attention. They are the ones going through your green yard, but trapping there often gets no results. We focus on the travel tunnels which they use every day. These can often be difficult to locate since they are so well established and aren’t as obvious as the feeding tunnels. 

Monthly Mole Service

Because moles don’t recognize property lines and are almost impossible to keep out of a yard, Lewis Pest Control offers monthly mole services to help keep your yard mole free. With this service, we will rid your yard of the current mole problem. Then we will inspect your yard on a monthly basis and look for new mole activity. If we do find a new activity we will set out traps to remove them before they have a chance to do further damage. 

And if you find new mole activity in between inspections we will come out at no additional charge to set traps. Prices are based on the size of the yard. If you are interested in this service, contact us and we will be happy to provide you a quote!
