Mole Removal Services

Mole control in DaytonMoles spend most of their time underground relying on their sense of smell, which can make them very difficult to capture. Your Dayton technician will utilize methods like mole bait, mole traps, mole repellents or insecticides to kill a mole's food source.

Common Ground Mole Problems 

  • Landowners who use mole-preferred soils (low acidity) on their plots are at the highest risk of attracting these tiny mammals.
  • Large properties used for growing crops and golf courses are also favored sites for mole burrowing.

Full-Service Mole Control 

Since moles tunnel so close to ground surfaces, they often leave behind unsightly mounds of upturned dirt and kill grass and other plants when they burrow into the ground. As mole infestations increase, they are capable of more destruction and can totally ruin otherwise aesthetically pleasing fields, as well as destroying crops, causing costly damage for farmers.

Mole Behavior and Diet

Moles are best known for their tunneling activity. While these tunnels can be over three feet below the surface, most often they stay less than twelve inches deep. Moles can dig at a rate of fifteen feet per hour, which can result in visible tunneling activity appearing literally overnight.

Moles are highly territorial, and each has their own system of tunnels. They live alone though most of the year and only pair up briefly to mate during the spring. Otherwise, they will aggresively defend their territory from other moles.

Females raise offspring on their own, as males don't stick around to help. Young are raised in a small nesting chamber in the female's burrow and leave to live on their own less than two months after birth. This may seem fast, but moles typically only live for two years at most.

Moles do not hibernate, and instead remain active throughout the winter. During this time they continue to tunnel and hunt for food, which can result in a mess of tunnel marks on your lawn after the snow melts.
