How to get rid of moles in your yard

Having moles in your yard can be disastrous to a healthy lawn. Their tunnels will cause grass to brown and die. 

Moles are in your lawn because there is food there. The primary food they seek are grubworms. There are different insecticides that are focused on killing grubworrms, which will cause the moles to move elsewhere to find food. 

Depending on your location, this method works well. The insecticide can be found at Meijer or Home Depot but can also be expensive. If you have a large area that is infested, this may not be the best, or if you live in a Downtown area, you may not want to send moles to feed on your neighbors lawn either. 

Other methods to remove the mole itself are: 

1. Traps - There are many kids of traps found at your local hardware.
2. Gas - if you successfully gas a major nest you should see positive results.
3. Get rid of the moles with poisonous bait.
4. Call a professional pest control service.

Other methods we've heard which may or may not work: 

1. Juicy fruit gum
2. Putting dry ice in their tunnels
3. Certain plants such as daffodils, marigolds, alliums, and fritillarias are said to be natural deterrents.

Moles may feed on your lawn from late Spring to late Fall so finding a solution is crucial to keeping your lawn looking great. 

Remember, a lawn with healthy grass will be less likely to be mole infested. Just another reason to have your lawn maintained by Ground Level Landscaping.
