Evergreen - Moles In Suffolk County Can Be Hard To Control

Have you seen evidence of a mole in your yard? Are you sure? There are a few different ground-dwelling animals that can make a mess of your lawn and cause trouble in your garden or landscaping. Join us as we look at how to tell if you have moles in your yard, why it is difficult to get rid of moles, and how Suffolk County pest control is the best way to control moles.

How To Tell If You Have A Mole In Your Yard

If you're seeing mounds of dirt in your yard, you should know that there are several pests that could have created the mounds. Ants leave small mounds, so you're likely to tell these apart from mole hills. Cicada killer wasps can excavate quite a bit of dirt, but still not as much as a mole. The animals that might make mounds that are similar to mole hills are gophers and groundhogs.

Gophers — The mounds created by gophers typically have a horseshoe pattern or look like a fan of dirt, and the entrances to gopher holes are likely to have earthen plugs.

Groundhogs — These pests are likely to make a lot of holes, many of them close together. At the entrance of the holes, you'll find piles of dirt.

Moles — Mole mounds are often mistaken for gopher mounds because while not easily seen, they have earthen plugs. You can tell them apart from gopher holes in two ways. Mole mounds have a volcano shape and are typically far apart. You're likely to also notice raised tunnels in your yard due to the way moles tend to burrow just beneath the surface.

Along with analyzing the characteristics of the dirt mounds in your yard, there is another way to tell that you're dealing with moles in Suffolk County. Gophers and groundhogs eat plants. Moles eat bugs. If your plants are being eaten, you're not dealing with moles.

What Kind Of Things Attract Moles To Your Yard?

You may have learned that grubs are the reason why you have moles in your yard. Information like this, while somewhat accurate, can make mole control in at your Suffolk County home hard. Do moles eat grubs? Yes. But grubs are far from the only food source a mole can find in your yard. If you attempt to control moles with a product that gets rid of grubs, you're not going to have much success driving moles away. Moles aren't only attracted to unhealthy lawns that are being damaged by grubs, they can move into a yard that has a beautiful and healthy lawn. Why? Because moles eat earthworms by the truckloads and a healthy lawn is going to have a lot of earthworms.

How To Repel Moles Naturally

There are many suggestions on the internet for repelling moles with things that smell bad to them, but you will have a hard time controlling moles with these methods. While somewhat effective for protecting a small patch of land, this type of mole control is not likely to protect your entire lawn from moles.

It is important to point out one way that repellents do have an impact on moles. A mole doesn't use the same tunnels over and over. They are continually making new tunnels. There are products that make moles abandon the tunnels in a yard. These can make moles move to a neighboring property. But this is only a temporary fix. Moles are continually making new tunnels. It is only a matter of time before they tunnel back into your yard through soil that has not yet been disturbed. 

The Best Mole Traps For Effective Pest Control

There are so many ways you can attempt to get rid of moles. You may try chewing gum mole control. Yup. That's a thing. You may try poison worms for mole control. You may even consider putting out traps to catch the moles in your yard. Do these methods work? Yes. They can. While we could suggest what methods work best, or tell you what traps to buy, we would be doing you a disservice. Rodent control for moles in Suffolk County is less about the products used and more about the strategy.
