Treatment procedures and Identification of Moles

Moles may be cute, but they can cause serious damage to your garden. Their tunnels can uproot plants and create unsightly mounds of dirt. If you’re dealing with a mole problem, there are several effective pest control methods you can use to keep your garden safe and healthy.

Use Mole Repellents

Mole repellents are a popular and effective way to keep moles out of your garden. There are several types of repellents available, including castor oil-based repellents, garlic-based repellents, and ultrasonic repellents. Castor oil-based repellents work by creating an unpleasant taste and smell in the soil, while garlic-based repellents work by emitting a strong odor that moles find unpleasant. Ultrasonic repellents emit high-frequency sound waves that are designed to deter moles from entering your garden. Consider trying one or more of these repellents to keep moles at bay.

Install Physical Barriers

Another effective way to control mole pests in your garden is to install physical barriers. This can include burying a mesh wire fence around the perimeter of your garden or placing wire mesh baskets around individual plants. These barriers prevent moles from burrowing into your garden and damaging your plants. Keep in mind that physical barriers may require more effort and expense than other methods, but they can be a long-term solution to mole infestations.

Seek Professional Help if Necessary

If you have tried various mole pest control methods and still cannot get rid of the problem, it may be time to seek professional help. Pest control companies have access to specialized equipment and techniques that can effectively eliminate moles from your garden. Additionally, they can provide ongoing maintenance to prevent future infestations. Don’t hesitate to reach out for help if you need it.

Information about Moles

Garden moles are small mammals with cylindrical bodies; velvety fur; small, inconspicuous ears and eyes; reduced hindlimbs; and short, but powerful forelimbs with large paws that have been adapted for digging. In terms of their motion, they swim along underground, using their wide front flippers to separate the soil as they move. The likelihood of you ever seeing a mole is very slim. The reason for this is because they rarely venture above the ground, but the evidence of their existence on your property will be difficult to miss.

One of the most common indications of a garden mole problem are their tunnels. This is one of the main reasons why they are seen as pests, especially for human activities such as agriculture, lawn care, and gardening. While they do not eat plant roots, and can actually provide positive contributions to the soil, they cause indirect damage. This is because garden moles will eat earthworms and other small invertebrates.

If you are looking for a garden mole pest control service, our knowledgeable and experienced specialists will be able to assist you by detecting exactly where the mole activity is. In addition, they will be able to advise you on the most appropriate solution for your pest problem.
