What Is With These Moles?

No. This isn't a beauty article or a post about laser surgery. We're talking about lawn mole control. If you live in the St. Louis area and want to know how to get rid of moles, you've come to the right place.

Have you seen their tunneling? Does your lawn look like it has veins? You might even have mounds of dirt and large dry brown patches. When moles create tunnels near the surface, they push the dirt up to create tunnels they can travel through. They will also make entrance and exit mounds wherever it suits them, leaving your lawn looking like a combat zone.

"Why are moles attacking my lawn?"

There can be several reasons that moles find your yard appealing. Moles eat grubs and worms to survive. In fact, a mole will eat its body weight in worms in a day or two. That is a lot of worms. If you have a healthy lawn you'll have a lot of worms because they aerate the soil. It is only a matter of time before moles realize your lawn is an all-you-can-eat buffet. On one hand, it is nice that they eat those grubs, because grub larvae can do quite a bit of damage when they start feasting on the roots of your grass. This will create brown patches all over your lawn. On the other hand, the tunnels and mounds they create are even less appealing to look at.

"How do I get rid of these moles?"

Moles can be a terror to your lawn and frustrating to get rid of. Fortunately, your friends at Rottler Pest & Lawn Solutions have been successfully protecting homes and businesses from mole damage for years. They use a unique approach to mole control and exclusion. Their trained technicians know how to determine which tunnels are fresh, and they plant bait worms in the ground which are designed to kill moles--and nothing else. If a mole doesn't take the worm, it simply dissolved into the soil. In addition to the bait, we are authorized to use traps as well. Our traps catch moles under the ground, leaving no trace of them in your yard. This way, we can fight the problem from multiple angles, right in their natural habitat.

Rottler technicians don't only remove moles, they can also manage the health of your lawn, and guide you in ways you can protect your property from invasive pests that eat the wood of your house and spread disease and illness to your family. Having a healthy, beautiful lawn is only one of the ways Rottler Pest & Lawn Solutions can improve the quality of your life. If you don't live in the Rottler service area, look for a company like Rottler, one that knows pest management as well as lawn care, because all pests must be properly managed in order for you to have a beautiful lawn.
