How to Identify Mole Damage in Your Lawn and Garden

It can be particularly devastating when a burrowing animal, like a mole, takes over your backyard and makes their new home in your carefully tended lawn or garden, destroying it in the process. Fortunately, you can minimize the destructive nature of moles by noticing the signs of a mole infestation early on and acting quick by contacting mole removal professionals to evict them before significant lawn and garden damage can be done.

The Damaging Signs of a Mole Infestation

It is very easy to confuse the damage caused by moles with other digging critters like vols, armadillos, rats, and rabbits, as their burrows often appear as small mounds. However, there is one major way to tell if you are dealing with a mole infestation: snaking paths.  

The underground tunnels of a mole appear on the surface as snaking paths that stretch out and away from their burrowed hole. This is the clearest indicator of a mole infestation. Sometimes, these tunnels are clearly visible with raised soil tracing their pathway under the grass. Other times, you’ll only be able to see the snaking paths of a mole when your grass begins to die in a pattern of zig-zagging lines across your yard.

The Problem with DIY Mole Removal

While you may be tempted to invest in DIY mole removal methods such as traps, chemicals, and ultrasonic mole repellent devices, they are either inhumane or ineffective and will only waste your time and money while allowing the moles to cause more havoc to your yard. Instead, contact experienced mole removal experts who know how to identify and locate burrowing critters and safely remove them while preserving the health of your landscaping.
