Safari Tree’s Mole Control program consists of four-phases guaranteed to take care of you and keep moles out of your lawn for that entire season. The treatments consist of bait injections that mimic a mole’s natural food source. Safari Tree’s technicians place the bait every 8 to 10 feet within mole tunnels that show signs of activity. When the mole eats the bait, it causes the mole to die, leaving it to decompose underground. When using the full mole control program, technicians space the treatments out at a minimum of 45 days apart. This gives great coverage over the course of a year. They will also come back out to treat in between applications if necessary.
Sometimes moles can be stubborn to remove, but Safari Tree has designed a program to ensure success. If you are looking to save a little money and opt to go with individual applications of the mole control service instead of the full program, Safari Tree can accommodate that. They offer a 45-day guarantee on individual applications.
One of the most common misconceptions when dealing with moles is that removing grubs will remove moles. Moles feed on a large variety of insects, not just grubs. Their main source of food consists mainly of earthworms. Because of this, removing grubs will not necessarily remove moles, and having moles does not necessarily indicate that you have grubs. If your main concern is grubs, Safari Tree offers outstanding grub control solutions.
Moles do most of their damage by burrowing underground in search of food (insects and earthworms). When they burrow, the roots of the turfgrass are uprooted from the soil below causing the turf to dry and die out. This damage can also cause the ground to soften, allowing for a greater chance of injury to your family or friends. Eliminating moles will make the lawn safer, more accessible to you, and it will help to maintain its beautiful appearance.
Here are a few things to keep in mind after your mole control treatments:
• DO NOT flatten or disturb the mole tunnels for at least 10-14 days following the application; Because it is necessary for the moles to revisit those active tunnels, interfering with them will likely render the application ineffective. After the 10-14 day period, it is best to flatten the tunnels in order to keep an eye out for any new activity.
• The bait is placed in the tunnel below the surface making it unlikely that pets or small children will be exposed to the bait.
• (As a reminder) The presence of moles in your turf is not an
indication of the presence of grubs or that a grub control product has
been ineffective. Grub control will not deter the presence of moles in
your turf. The two are not mutually exclusive.
• If you have new mole activity that pops up after you have flattened the tunnels that have already been treated, contact Safari Tree to set up a FREE service call. The experts at Safari Tree want to make sure that you are completely satisfied with their service!
