Tips from Weed Man Trumbull County, OH

mole damage on lawn

Moles can be a real annoyance in your lawn as they tunnel and search for food. Not only do they make your lawn appear unsightly, but they can create problems with mowing, too. The first step in bringing the situation under control is to eliminate the source of feeding for the moles.

 

If the problem is the presence of grubs and they are brought under control through a program applied by your Weed Man Trumbull County, OH professional, moles and other critters will most likely re-locate in search of their next meal. Because moles feast on any number of insect pests, it’s also likely that a treatment will involve placing a product into the mole tunnels to rid your lawn entirely of moles.

 

 

Control Options

Proper cutting practices may discourage moles from invading your lawn. When mowing your lawn, mow in a different direction every time. This encourages your grass to stand up and prevents it from lying down and creating a perfect habitat for moles. Moles are also discouraged from invading your lawn if the lawn is maintained at a height of 2” (5 cm).

Trapping is the best method for short-term control, however, it is not permanent. Areas will quickly be re-infested because of the wandering habits of moles. Traps should be placed in primary runways and around holes that are continuously re-opened.
