How To Make Moles Move On?
Q: I have moles currently making roadways in my yard. I’ve been told that they are not feeding off grubs but earthworms. How can I make the moles move on?
A: Moles certainly eat grubs and earthworms, but they also enjoy beetles, spiders, centipedes, and any other living creature they can find as they tunnel in your yard. Killing grubs does nothing more than make the moles dig faster to find other food. Traps and poisons are available for mole control but it is very difficult to determine where to place them so that the mole finds them. My best advice for mole control? Hire a teenager to walk on top of the tunnels and mash the soil back into place. Hopefully the moles will become discouraged and move to a more welcoming place.
