Getting Rid of Your Royal Oak Moles

Moles can cause a lot of damage to your Royal Oak, Michigan home. They tend to travel underground through deep tunnels in your yard, constantly creating new tunnels daily. Over time, your beautifully maintained yard will be replaced with an abundance of mole holes.

Do I Have a Mole Problem?

You can identify a mole problem by looking for molehills or soft soil in your yard. Molehills are large piles of soil that act as the mole’s entrance or exit point to their tunnel. Soft areas can also be a symptom of a mole problem. You can identify these areas of the yard as areas that collapse when you walk on them.

Identifying Moles in Royal Oak, Michigan

You will find moles all over the state of Michigan, even right here in Royal Oak and its surrounding neighborhoods. If you find that you have moles, you will find that it is one of the two types of moles commonly found in Michigan:

  • Eastern moles: Eastern moles are moles that create tunnel surfaces throughout your yard. They can be easier to identify and rid from your property.
  • Star-nosed moles: Star-nosed moles also create entrance and exit points, but they tend to be in the form of a large pile. Star-nosed moles will dig deeper into the yard so there is more soil when they come up. This can make them more difficult to identify and trap.

Common Mole Myths

You might have heard the common myth that if you have a mole problem, then you also have a grub problem. This is not always the case. One does not mean that you have the other and each will need to be dealt with separately. While moles do feed on grubs, they also feed on other insects too.

Getting Rid of Your Royal Oak Moles

You have identified that you do indeed, have a mole problem in your Royal Oak, home. Now what?

You might have read that you can discourage moles through barrier plants. Unfortunately, there isn’t actually any evidence that supports that these plants deter moles in your yard. You might have heard of the vibrating machines that are meant to discourage moles from entering the yard. Unfortunately, these machines also do not have very successful results either.

Of course, you could attempt to catch the moles and manually remove them from your yard. But, unless you know their exact location and have the ability to get deep into the tunnel, this might prove impossible to do. You might have found many other options when researching your mole removal choices including poison baits, smoke cartridges, moth flakes, and other home remedies, but none of them are actually proven to work.

Does that mean that you have to just deal with moles? No.

    It went great. No more wasps after 48 hrs. And it took only 15 minutes to apply the treatment. The man that came (I forgot his name but I believe it's a small family business) was very serious and knowledgeable. Also he was the first one to respond and be able to show up after I contacted 4 or 5 different pest exterminators. Aliq, S. *
