How to Get Rid of Moles in Your Yard

Moles are carnivorous creatures, so, while they may dig up your yard and garden, they are actually not out to get your tenderly grown fruits and vegetables. Instead, they are hunting for the bugs and grubs that inhabit your property’s rich soil. Whatever their intentions may be, it doesn’t change the fact that hungry moles will destroy the landscaping, grass, and plants in your yard in their attempt to get a meal.

If you suspect the burrowing rodents are infesting your property, here are a few tactics you can try to get rid of moles in your yard.

Ways to Get Rid of Moles

  • Deter Moles With Plants

Before attempting to catch the underground pests, try deterring them away from your property with scented plants. Moles have very sensitive noses that they use to navigate through the soil. Use their senses against them by planting odorous plants that they dislike. Moles can’t stand the smell of:

  • Daffodils
    • Garlic
    • Leeks
    • Marigolds
    • Onions
  • Try Humane Mole Trapping

While deterrent methods can help chase moles away, a severe mole infestation requires more drastic measures. Mole traps are more effective at ensuring a mole infestation is completely eliminated. However, mole trapping and releasing requires you to handle the moles yourself, and unless you have the right protective gear, it is probably in your best interest to hire a professional to do this instead.

  • Call a Mole Removal Professional

At the end of the day, there is no method of mole removal safer and more effective than hiring a mole removal professional to handle the job. When you call a mole removal professional, you are guaranteeing a humane and permanent resolution to your nuisance mole problem. An equipped and experienced mole removal professional will implement preventative measures to ensure your yard is permanently secure from future mole infestations.
