Eliminate Moles From Your Yard the Safe and Natural Way

Best Pest Control Tech Spray

Mole Control

Sunrise Mole Control Service uses the most effective method available, the commercial kill-trapping of moles is prohibited in Washington State.  We use a poisoned bait that mimics their food source which is an earthworm.  The bait is placed underground for them to consume. Moles are very tricky to get rid of and may require more than one treatment.  For large yards we may have to break up the property into grids. Typically a couple of treatments are needed to get rid of the moles in your yard.  However moles are very territorial and may move into another moles runs after they are killed. Depending on your neighboring property and how much of a food source your yard has can affect the amount of treatments needed.  

Sunrise Pest Management does not require contracts so you are never locked in to do another service.  After the moles are gone we would recommend going to a monthly preventative service that will help stop the moles from coming back to the property.

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.

Treating Moles in Large Areas

Sunrise has a successful history of eliminating moles from very large lawns, municipal parks, sporting fields, and more. Please call to speak with a Technician about our experience in getting rid of moles.

Feeding Habits of Moles

The Townsend Mole feeds primarily on insect larvae and earthworms. Moles are also known to eat slugs, centipedes, roots, and seeds.

The Townsend Mole has dark, velvety fur, a pointed snout, 44 teeth, and large front paws for digging. Moles ears are not visible and they have very small eyes.

Mole hills or mole mounds like these are typical throughout the Pacific Northwest, and are characteristic of Townsend Moles.
