Yard Moles and Gophers in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest

This natural treatment works by making the mole's food source taste bitter. Moles don't like bitter worms and grubs, so they leave in search of other food. Best of all, worms and grubs are absolutely unharmed!

Like any other yard or garden treatment including fertilizer, herbicides, or insecticides, effective mole control requires periodic re-application. For best results, we recommend monthly treatments, especially when first addressing a mole infested yard.

The most popular species of yard mole in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest is the Townsend Mole (Scapanus townsendii). The Townsend Mole differs from other yard moles and gophers, and is characterized by living in tunnels very deep underground. Townsend Moles only come to the surface for food and water, and is why we rarely see raised mole tunnels just under the surface of our lawns and turf.

Mole Treatment

Because of the Townsend Mole's deep underground habitat, they are more difficult to eliminate. Yard moles that live near the ground's surface are much easier to bait or trap. Watering your lawn thoroughly will help soak the ground, and will draw the repellent material down to the mole's depth.
