Moles can be a major nuisance to homeowners of Danville, Champaign, and Urbana. The pests dig tunnels in yards that damage grass, gardens, and trees. It is difficult for homeowners to have the beautiful landscaping they desire with moles constantly digging or leaving piles of dirt in the yard. Homeowners or their pets can step into holes that moles make and get injured.
A mole problem can be difficult to treat because do it yourself solutions are not effective. Homeowners place vibrating poles in the ground to scare away moles, but there is no evidence to show that they work. Homeowners also put barbed wire and broken glass into mole tunnels in attempts to stop the pests. Gas cartridges and mothballs are other do it yourself solutions that are used to control moles. All of these methods are ineffective in treating the problem.
Homeowners try insecticides and repellants to get rid of moles, but these products have not been proven to work. These chemicals can be dangerous to use. Small children, family pets, and wildlife may come into contact with these products and become ill. Groundwater can get contaminated with repellants and insecticides used for mole control.
Trapping the Moles
Scissors, choker and harpoon traps are effective ways to control a mole problem. However, these traps are not simple to use. They have to be placed properly in order for a mole to become trapped. A person who sets a trap has to have good knowledge of moles’ habits. If the trap is not set properly, a mole will simply go around it. Most homeowners do not have the skills it takes to set a mole trap correctly.
