MOLE REMOVAL
MoleMinnesota has two species of Moles, the Eastern Mole and the Star Nose Mole. Moles only have one litter a year. They give birth to two to five young in late spring. Moles are insectivores. A 5 ounce mole will consume 45-50 lbs of worms and insects each year. These little dirt diggers can dig surface tunnels at approximately 15 to 18 feet an hour and as much as 150-200 feet a day. Moles travel through existing tunnels at about 80 feet/minute. A mole's tunnel is an insect trap. As insects, larvae and worms burrow through the ground, they often wind up in the mole's tunnel. The mole patrols his tunnels and eats these unfortunate critters. Moles eat only "live" food. They eat earthworms, insect larvae and any ground dwelling insects. (That is why Juicy Fruit gum, human hair, poison peanuts and other home remedies do not work, they are not alive!) The mole simply follows the food. During the winter and dry summers the mole will tunnel down to where the insects are, at these times the homeowner sometimes gets a reprieve from the mole's destructive surface activity. The life expectancy of a mole is approximately 3 years due to its extremely high metabolic rate. Moles are very territorial and won’t tolerate another mole in its tunnel system. The average lawn has between 1-3 moles.

Molehill St Paul Mole Damage
The mole pushes soil up and out of a vertical tunnel and creates a volcano-like mound. These mounds can damage lawn mowers and makes mowing your lawn a challenge.  It also creates tunnels under the surface of the grass. This exposes the roots of the grass and kills it. The moles tunnels are commonly used by other mammals like shrews, voles, and mice and they are responsible for eating grains, seeds, bulbs and other tubers.

Controlling Nuisance Moles
Trapping is the most effective and practical method of mole control and removal. In general, Nuisance Wildlife Control has greater success in the spring and fall, especially after rain or in lawns that are watered regularly. In the summer and winter, moles are active in deep soil and more difficult to locate. Traps are set in active surface burrows.  NWC has a plan to fit all property owners, the regular plan for 2 acres or less is a setup fee and a per mole charge (remember the average yard has 1-3 moles). We have yearly contracts or we can trap by the week or month. These are priced per site.
