Are you at your wits end wondering what to do? Do you just want to pack up the house and leave the yard behind? Or are you searching the internet looking for a dynamite dealer near you?
Okay, Okay. . . put away the dynamite, the bubble gum, smoke cartridges, the water hose and let's get down to business.
There are two things you need to control moles.
Moles are fascinating animals, but they can sure tear your yard up in a hurry. One study estimates a mole can tunnel up to 80 feet in a day. I bet you are thinking to yourself, “Yes, that was my yard".
You will never get rid of all the moles in your yard, but you will be able to control them. You see, when you remove the moles, others will eventually move in. It could take a year or two or possibly sooner, but others will come.
People who generally are most affected by them live near a forested area or have some trees and shrubs in their yard. The mole is a woodland creature. When it finds a nice lush lawn with lots of night crawlers (worms) and grubs, it is full speed ahead!
Your yard just became a feasting ground and the “open invitation" sign has just been put out.
If you are ready to put up your dukes and give those moles the “one-two punch", there is no better time than the present!
