Facts About Moles

If your lawn looks like the superhighway for moles, our professional team at The Turf Doctor is ready to assist you.

Mole Control Nashville
  • Moles consume 45 to 50 pounds of earthworms a year. If we think of their diet as a cake, earthworms would be the center of the cake and grubs would be the icing. They love the icing, but since they need to eat their body weight in bugs each day, they’re going to eat a lot of cake (earthworms).
  • Moles can dig surface tunnels at 18 feet/hour.
  • Moles travel through tunnels at 80 feet/minute.

Mole Control Services

The first thing to keep in mind is that most of the home remedies for mole control, such as using bubble gum, vinegar and garlic, or coffee grounds to control moles, simply don’t work. They only serve to drive the moles to a different area of your lawn, creating even more damage. That's where we come in with our two-step process. After all mole activity has ceased for 30 days, our job is complete. If any infestation occurs again, it will be treated as a new infestation.

Our effective two-step Trapping & Prevention Process for getting rid of moles:
  • Trapping: Trapping remains the most effective tool for controlling moles. On our initial visit, we will inspect your property for mole activity, determine the number of traps needed, and give you a quote. Once set, the mechanism that traps the moles is underground, safe from pets. These traps need to be left undisturbed for the duration of the service. We will return every 5 to 7 days for 30 days or until all mole activity has ceased. During each of these visits, we will remove any moles caught and reset and relocate the traps as needed.
  • Prevention: Once the moles are gone, you may want to take care of any grubworms in your lawn to prevent new moles from moving into the existing tunnels. We will treat your lawn with a mole deterrent product that will last for 30 days. This is an optional seasonal application that we will recommend during the initial inspection if needed.
