Mole extermination can be a very risky thing if done wrong. Buying lots of traps can add up, and other less conventional methods can be even more costly to try. The biggest expense, however, is often repairing the landscape that the mole has damaged. Many homeowners spend thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars trying to keep their lawn pristine all year round. And then those pesky moles come and tear everything up; building elaborate underground tunnel systems and causing all sorts of damage towards an unsuspecting, innocent homeowner. Living with the moles is no longer an option and it’s time to take a stand and kill these moles. But what is the best way to go about killing ground moles while still keeping your yard in one piece?
Where Most Companies Go Wrong
Most companies that remove moles from your yard will claim that using traps is the quickest and most effective way to get rid of moles. Traps, assuming that they are good traps and are well placed, can be a very effective mole extermination tool, but they are not always the best option when dealing with landscaped properties that will cost thousands of dollars to redo. The fact is, moles and gophers make a mess of any yard that they infest, and having to repair the mole’s damage is more than enough for any homeowner. This problem becomes even worse when a “mole killer” is hired that doesn’t know what they’re doing and ends up making the yard look worse than the mole did!
