After treating, lawn moles want an easy path to the exits to leave your lawn. But when mole infestation is blocked in by the street, house, drive, or if it's just a very large property, evacuation can be confusing for moles as they often just can't find the exits. In which case, adding trapping can help. If you're in our trapping service area, you can add mole traps and save $100!

So, what do we do?

At St. Louis Mole Removal, we treat the soil to help drive moles out and keep them out long term, often 2-3+ yrs when extermination fails. How can this help? When infestation is zig-zagging or mounding, killing the mole is ineffective because this pattern means that your soil acts as a magnet for local moles and all the moles in the neighborhood can hear it. So the moles that are currently there are actually keeping the less dominant moles in the neighborhood from infesting, until you kill them. That's why your trapper keeps getting catches but the infestation hasn't stopped. The rest of the moles in the neighborhood are just waiting for their turn to infest your very alluring soil. Treating the cause of your infestation, the soil, often drives moles out for years, when all else fails.

In mole infestation, there are generally two types of lawn damage:

  1. Straight tunnels going from point to point, up the drive or walkway, along the base of the house. This kind of tunneling indicates that there's nothing on the ground attracting the neighborhood's population of moles in, and can likely just be trapped.
  2. Wide spread mounds or zig-zagging tunnels. This type of infestation indicates that the soil is acting as a lure and is drawing moles in from the neighborhood and could benefit from treatment to help drive moles out of the lawn and keep them out long term.


Widespread mole infestation means your yard is like a magnet pulling moles in. Trapping or any other extermination won't help this, but treating usually will. However, this mole pattern means that wild animals are being pulling onto your property, often 6' deep. While we can usually defeat this when nobody else can, 100% success simply can't be promised.

The key to becoming mole free is identifying which of the 2 types of mole infestation you have.

  • Straight, isolated tunnels: Trap the moles
  • Zig-zagging/wide-spread mounds: Treat The Soil to help Drive Moles Out and Keep Them Out.

What is our Process?

Why is Mole Removal a Challenge?

St. Louis Mole Removal helps drive moles out of St. Louis Lawns for 13 yrs. Here's what we do for your lawn mole infestation.

Have tough infestation? Consider adding trapping.

Why is mole removal a challenge? Several reasons:

  1. Mole infestation is like an Ice Burg, what you see on the surface is only about 10% of what's winding below in a tunnel system that can go 6 feet down.
  2. Moles live in large multi-neighborhood populations. So, if you have a few moles in your lawn, there are likely countless moles very close by.
  3. The moles in your lawn are territorial animals. So if you're having zig-zagging or wide spread infestation, this means your soil is likely attractive to the local population of moles and as soon as you trap 5 of your moles, you may just be clearing the way for the next 5 moles to move in from throughout the neighborhood.
  4. Moles are like LAWN BATS. You may notice that moles may be ripping up your lawn but showing no interest in your neighbors' lawns. In fact, there may not be tunnels or mounds as far as you can see. The reason moles are wide spread or zig-zagging is that your lawn is luring them in. Moles can actually HEAR your soil from great distances and go to a lot of effort to come and infest.
  5. Most Importantly, most infestation like this is partially the result of 4 things that affect the food imbalance in your lawn over the long term:
    1. Irrigation Running too often.
    2. Irrigation set to too much of a stream and not applying evenly.
    3. Drying out the soil.
    4. Using pesticide like grub ex.
