Getting Rid of Moles: How To Get Rid of Moles in Your Yard
There are actually six different kinds of moles in North America and three of them find their way into yards and gardens. Moles can grow up to eight inches long and weigh up to six ounces, and are capable of having a litter of six babies. Moles primarily eat insects and worms, and can cause major damage to lawns by digging, burrowing tunnels, and also damaging plant root systems. A common cause of mole infestation is over-watering. Over watering your lawn can increase the number of worms and also brings them closer to the surface which encourages moles to move in. Once they get into your yard, they can multiply surprisingly quick, and getting rid of moles can be incredibly difficult.
Once moles get into your yard and have a chance to develop a tunnel network, it becomes harder to get rid of them. Moles have been known to dig tunnels at a rate of 18 feet per hour. Imagine the damage a family of moles can do in a week! There are many different mole control and removal methods and products both humane and deadly. Some work, some definitely do not. Often times moles come into an area, burrow holes and tunnels, and then leave a week or two later after they have eaten all of the food in that area. They may move to another part of your yard or garden, or possibly to a neighbor’s yard. A few weeks later, they might be back in your yard. This constant movement creates the misperception that some mole repellents, deterrents, and removal methods work, when actually the moles have just moved on to an area with more food.
There are all sorts of methods on how to get rid of moles out there, from pickle juice, broken glass, razor blades, bleach, moth balls, rose branches, ultrasonic devices, and more. There are also different methods of killing moles including poisons, explosives, and more. The problem is most of these do not work, and can cause harm to the environment, other animals, and of course children and adults who play in your yard. Mole traps are an effective and humane method of yard mole removal, but then you have to deal with a live mole in a trap which is a particularly scary thought for many of us!
