Mole Control Olympia

Trapping the mighty North American Mole can be rather tricky.  The little fuzzy guys that dig around in the dirt all day are a bit smarter than they are usually given credit for.  Moles are typically solitary creatures (aside from one of the seven breeds that is known in North America that has a pack mentality) but they are not above helping to build the same mole super-highway under your home and yard.  Moles will vary the depth of their tunnels depending on their needs; they often will tunnel several inches below the ground level when they are on the hunt for worms (their favorite food) and other insects or grubs.  For long distance travel, they typically build their own highway about a foot underground.  They also dig down deep, three to four feet deep to build their burrows that act as a place to sleep, a place to store some worms for a snack later and birthing their babies.  


Molehills or mole tracks that appear in your lawn or garden are often the first of the three types of tunnels they use.  Think of those tracks more like the aisles of a grocery store.  Depending on how good the hunting is, the same mole could make their home in your home for months at a time.  


Once the moles have set up a nice burrow deep in your yard, it can be very problematic to get out.  Despite their small size, they can dig 15-20 feet per hour and can be hard to contain.  Rather than breaking your back by shoveling out the molehills as they pop up, call the professionals whose sole goal is your yard, mole free.  We are a small, local family-based business who caters to just getting moles out of your yard.
