I made the morning news this morning. Their expert gardener was recommending poison worms for mole control. He didn't quite convey my recommendations completely but it was better than poison worms. http://tristatehomepage.com/search-fulltext?&nxd_id=140464&shr=addthis

I started my first job last week on a small yard. So far I have pulled out 4 moles. I just got a new job yesterday that I start tomorrow. It is 3 acres. I can't wait to see what comes out of there!!

Ok got a few quick questions. Gonna add moles to my list of services, and luckily I have a friend who does mole jobs in town for another company and is showing me the ropes. He doesn't have the time to mess with moles anymore and wants me to take over. There are some super possibilities here and I'm excited to incorporate it with my lawn care business.
1. Why do moles make the mounds you see? I don't mean the tunnels, I mean the mounds.
2. Are moles blind?
3. When are moles the most active? Day or night?
4. When is the best time of day (or night) to set your traps?
5. Has anyone found a way to catch them alive and how?

I wanted to share this with everyone. Found it on youtube and I thought it was just pretty darn informative about setting the Victor Out Of Sight mole traps. The video quality is kinda poor but the point is clear.

1. Why do moles make the mounds you see? I don't mean the tunnels, I mean the mounds. They are burrowing deeper and must bring the excavated dirt to the surface. When they are surface tunneling they can just raise the dirt above them with their body strength.

2. Are moles blind? No,but almost. Close your eyes and look at a light. The glow you see is all the vision they have.

3. When are moles the most active? Day or night? Yeah... They are related to shrews and have a similar metabolism. They must eat almost constantly so they are active several times a day.

4. When is the best time of day (or night) to set your traps? When ever you are there. If you place them, they will come.

5. Has anyone found a way to catch them alive and how? Yes. You can dig a hole across an active travel tunnel and place a deep plastic container in it. When they fall in it they can't get a grip to climb out. disclaimer: never done it, only read about it. Guys also have been trying mechanic wire tubes with cloth floors and trap doors. Because of a moles high metabolism, they will starve to death very quickly in a live trap.

If I'm wrong on these answers, please fill me in too!

Forgot one last question:
What does a mole's main diet consist of?

90% (or there about, depending on who you ask) year round, are earthworms. wink

There are also some studies that show they eat a small amount of plant matter.
Along with earthworms, are grubs,(and other beetle larva) cicada larva and similar prey.

This is WHY...mole pellets DO NOT work...

They do NOT emulate what a mole actually eats!


It would be better suited for rodents, such as mice and chpmunks, IMO.
