Mole Removal Treatment is for infestation where trapping just isn't working and where there's no other real option. While mole free success can't be assured, is important for a client to know what they can do to assist their own mole free effort.
Lawn moisture Control is important for mole Pest Control! The moisture of the ground plays a big part in the mole food that develops there. As the lawn or garden soil is overly dried, is overly watered, unevenly watered or has drainage problems, it can become prone to infestation. Controlling soil moisture by avoiding these extremes can help avoid conditions that moles prefer and, along with our Long Term Mole Removal Soil Treatment or mole trapping, can help you play a big part in your own mole free success:
- DON'T have in-ground irrigation? Consider using Impact Sprinkler and Timers. Permanently placed sprinklers, out of the way of mowers (base of your house, hidden in your beds, gardens, etc.) control your irrigation consistently and automatically.
- Have in-ground irrigation? Be sure that it's properly set for even application throughout each head's radius. Improperly set heads water unevenly (Thin Stream, Incomplete Head Rotation) resulting in wet spots next to dry spots, promoting an over-population of mole food in each extreme (irresistible in a mole infested neighborhood). It's easy to adjust this on your own (search for Adjustment Wrench St Louis Retailer here).
- Avoid Grub Killer! Pesticides not only kill grubs, but also much of the biology indigenous to your lawn. Over a short time, the Grub Ex termination metabolizes and the vacant lawn becomes perfect for re-population. The fastest ones to repopulate are also the ones that moles love best--thick, mealy larvae. And, because nothing else is left, they can come back in far greater numbers and make mole infestation worse. Hire us or not...but don't use Grub Killer for Mole Pest Control!
- Don't over-use Fertilizer or Weed Killer: Over-use of Lawn chemicals can contribute to your Lawn Mole Infestation similarly to drought or pesticide. Hire a St Louis Landscaper to properly manage your fertilizer and weed control (DON'T ALLOW them to apply Pesticides like Grub Ex). If you're going to use extermination, use a trapper. While trapping alone is normally temporary and tends to really add up $$, at least it doesn't worsen your infestation like chemical pest control can.
- Grow Lawn Blades Long. Deep watering twice a week in summer promotes deep root growth, can be a subtle detraction to moles and can enhance the longevity of our Lawn Mole Removal--improving your chances for Mole Free Success!
- We urge people not to use harsh exterminator chemicals, poison worms or peanuts as St. Louis' World Bird Sanctuary reports that these pose a server hazard to the local population of predatory birds, fox, dogs and cats as the toxic mole carcasses often get eaten by something that will likely die as a result. And castor oil, it only makes worms temporarily taste bad and isn't effective.
- Most Importantly, Drive Moles far from your St. Louis lawn! As a trapper, I can tell you that trapping often just siphons your neighborhood's mole population through your own lawn at about $100 per mole (or, $69 with us). If you're the only one with moles and tunnels are not zig-zagging, trap away. If moles infest your St Louis neighborhood, don't pay to kill them all. Treat the soil to help Drive them Out and Keep Them Out Long Term. Share our service with neighbors and Save $20 Each!
