The eastern mole is native to Florida and infests grassy areas all over the state. Their powerful forelegs are specially adapted for pushing soil out of the way as they dig underground. The turf damage they do is truly amazing when their tiny size is taken into consideration. A single mole can tunnel a distance of 18 feet per hour.
Moles tend to tunnel near the surface of lawns where insects, grubs and larvae are plentiful. Contrary to popular wisdom, they don’t feed on the roots of grass, but kill roots by aerating the soil and drying them out. In other words, moles eat the insects and grubs that are killing the lawn to begin with.
The turf damage caused is largely cosmetic but long, ugly strips of browning grass and churned soil criss-crossing a lawn is something no residential or commercial property owner wants to see. An entire industry has has been built around different ways of ridding lawns of these stubborn pests, ranging from sonic vibrators to fumigation. One method of planting sticks of fruit-flavored gum in mole tunnels reaches into the realm of urban myth.
Before investing in one or more ineffective and expensive mole-control methods, we urge you to give us a call. As wildlife control specialists, we have the knowledge and experience to diagnose and treat the infestation in the lawn that that attracted the moles in the first place. We can also trap and remove those tiny tunnelers and keep them from coming back.
