Mole Traps Safety Concerns:

Mole Removal Services

Mole traps are usually set underground, thus can cause some safety concerns. A mole trap may not be immediately apparent to someone mowing the lawn. If the mower accidentally hits a mole trap, it could cause injury to the operator or damage to the equipment. Another Critter Gone uses fluorescent flags for safety and tracking purposes.

If your lawn care professionals know about the mole traps in your yard, they can work around them to avoid accidentally triggering or damaging them. This can help prevent unnecessary interruptions or delays in the mowing process.

If the lawn care professionals are not aware of the mole traps in your yard and accidentally trigger them, they may be held liable for any damages or injuries that result. By letting them know about the traps beforehand, you can help prevent any legal issues that may arise.

Overall, it is important to inform your lawn care professionals about any potential hazards or obstacles in your yard, including mole traps. This can help ensure the safety of everyone involved, as well as help maintain the health and appearance of your lawn and garden.

Avoid Stepping On Mole Tunnels

In addition to letting your lawn care professionals know about your mole traps, it is important to avoid stepping on any existing mole tunnels in your yard. This is because moles will often just reroute their tunnels when they are disturbed, causing even more damage to your lawn and garden.

  • When moles tunnel through your yard, they create networks of underground passages that can disrupt the roots of your plants and cause unsightly mounds of dirt on the surface. If you step on these tunnels, you can collapse them and force the moles to dig new ones, making the problem worse.
  • To avoid stepping on mole tunnels, it is important to keep an eye out for signs of mole activity in your yard. Look for raised ridges of dirt, called molehills, as well as areas where the soil is soft and spongy. If you see these signs, try to avoid walking or mowing over those areas.
  • Another way to discourage mole activity is to remove any sources of food, such as grubs, from your lawn, as this can reduce the attractiveness of your yard to moles.

In summary, avoiding stepping on existing mole tunnels is important to prevent further damage to your lawn and garden. By keeping an eye out for signs of mole activity and maintaining your lawn, you can help discourage moles from tunneling through your yard and causing damage.

How Deep Are Most Mole Tunnels?

Most mole tunnels are located between 2 to 4 inches deep. However, some mole tunnels can extend deeper than this, depending on the type of soil and the depth of the food source.

Moles create two types of tunnels: shallow feeding tunnels and deeper travel tunnels. The shallow feeding tunnels are usually just below the surface of the soil and are used by moles to search for food, primarily earthworms. These tunnels can often be seen as raised ridges of soil or “molehills” in the lawn.

The deeper travel tunnels are used by moles to move around their territory and can be several inches deeper than the feeding tunnels. These tunnels can be more difficult to detect, as they often do not disturb the soil surface in the same way as the feeding tunnels.

It is also worth noting that the depth of mole tunnels can vary depending on the type of soil in your yard. In heavier soils such as clay, mole tunnels may be deeper, while in sandy soils, the tunnels may be shallower. Because the mole tunnels can be deep it can be challenging for homeowners to identify the tunnels and trap them.

Earthworms make up a large majority of a mole’s diet, with some estimates suggesting that they consume up to 90% of their body weight in earthworms each day. Moles are able to detect the vibrations of earthworms in the soil using their sensitive noses and specialized forepaws, which are adapted for digging and capturing prey. While moles may also eat other small insects and invertebrates, their diet is primarily focused on earthworms.

Most mole removal chemicals on the market are not effective because¬†moles¬†primarily feed on earthworms, and these chemicals are not designed to target worms. The chemicals are usually formulated to repel or kill insects and other small animals, which are not a significant part of a mole’s diet.

Furthermore, moles spend the majority of their time underground, which makes it difficult to target them with chemical treatments. Even if a chemical could be effective in killing moles, it would need to be delivered directly to the mole’s underground burrow system, which can be extensive and difficult to locate.

For these reasons, many experts recommend non-chemical methods of mole control, such as trapping. Our professional mole traps can be set in active tunnels to capture and remove moles from the area.
