Mole Removal In Portland

If you live around Portland then you know that Moles can be a real problem for homeowners, leaving unsightly tunnels and mounds, and ruining lawns and gardens. If you’re dealing with a mole infestation, don’t worry – there are plenty of ways to get rid of these pesky critters. In this article, we’ll go over some tips and tricks for effective mole removal.

Tip #1: Identify the Problem

The first step in getting rid of moles is to identify the problem. Look for the telltale signs of mole activity, such as raised ridges in your lawn or garden. Once you’ve identified the problem, you can start planning your mole removal strategy.

Tip #2: Use Traps

One effective method for mole removal is to use traps. There are several types of mole traps available, including the scissor-jaw trap, harpoon trap, and tunnel trap. Place the trap in an active mole tunnel and check it regularly. When you catch a mole, release it far away from your property to prevent it from coming back.

Tip #3: Use Repellents

Another way to get rid of moles is to use repellents. Some common mole repellents include castor oil, garlic, and mothballs. These substances are placed in active mole tunnels to deter moles from returning. Keep in mind that repellents may take several weeks to be effective and need to be reapplied regularly.

Tip #4: Create Physical Barriers

Moles can’t tunnel through dense, compacted soil. Creating a physical barrier around your garden or lawn can prevent moles from tunneling into the area. Use materials like wire mesh or hardware cloth to create a barrier underground.

Tip #5: Prevent Future Infestations

Once you’ve successfully removed the moles from your property, it’s important to take steps to prevent future infestations. This can include things like regularly mowing your lawn, keeping your garden free of debris, and ensuring that your soil is well-drained. By taking preventative measures, you can avoid the need for future mole removal.

My shop has had an infestation of rats for over 9 years! I tried traps and occasionally caught a rat but always they came back. On their first visit we discovered two entry points for the rats and plugged them up. After a few rats caught, my shop has returned to normalcy. Thank you Pest Patrol.
