How to Deal with Moles Digging Through Your Lawn

Did you know that moles can dig up to 18 feet per hour and can destroy even the most well-maintained lawns in a matter of a couple of days? These tiny insectivores are widespread across America, Europe, and Asia. Moles do not consume plants or roots, but their digging does considerable harm to lawns and flower beds and it can be hard as a homeowner to deal with moles.

Signs of Moles in Your Yard

Moles can do significant damage to your lawn

The most obvious signs of having moles digging through your yard would be if you actually saw the mole. Moles are odd-looking animals with pointed muzzles, small eyes, and bodies roughly the size of a potato.

These unusual creatures dig through the soil using their broad flipper-like front feet, munching on bugs and insects along the way. However, since moles are nocturnal and spend most of their time underground, most people never see them in their lawn.

The most typical and easily identifiable sign of a mole is fresh mounds of soil. More signs include raised ridges around an opening in the soil, disturbed roots and grassy areas, and uneven ground.

How to Deal with Moles and Restore Your Lawn?

Moles are most active in the early spring; their activity often decreases when the soil dries up later in the season. With a hectic routine, it is understandable that seasonal lawn maintenance would be the last thing on your priority list — this is where hiring a lawn care company comes in handy.

As discussed above, moles can do significant damage to your lawn, and investing in a “Lawn Program” is your best bet. It’s a seven-series program (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, and VII) for winter, early spring, spring, early summer, summer, early fall, and fall, respectively. The result: luscious, mole-free lawn and healthy habitat. Contact Secure Lawn today for an estimate and have us help you to deal with moles.
