Moles, Mole Hills and Tunneling

Whenever doing mole work, the customer almost always asks "how many do you think I've got". Its always hard to tell by the amount of damage in a particular yard. Moles can tunnel up to 18 feet an hour and over 100 feet a day so imagine the damage just one mole can do to a yard. I always answer this question by saying between 1 and 3. This usually amazes the customer as they think that they have an army of moles on their property. Moles typically have 1 or 2 main runs, with most of the damage being from feeding tunnels that are dug then never used again. Most of our work is done on 3 week contracts, normally we have captured all the offending moles by day three. At the end of the first week, we will begin to rake up the dirt piles on the lawn and compress the mole runs. Why do we do this? So we can monitor any new damage. When the lawn and flower borders are all raked up new damage stands out like a sore thumb. This is all part of our service, not only will we catch and remove the moles we will rake up the damage they created. Although we don't double as a landscape company, we leave the lawn looking better than when we arrived. If moles are making your lawn looking like a mine field, give us a call.
