About Mole Hazards in Southeast Michigan
While moles are a problem throughout the eastern half of North America, they are a particularly serious threat in Michigan thanks to a number of environmental factors. Chief among these is the heavy amount of forest cover in the Great Lakes State. Moles feed primarily on earthworms, which gather in soils with large numbers of trees nearby. Heavily forested areas are thus prime locations for invasions, making it essential for homeowners in much of Michigan to invest in pest control for their yards.
Besides its forests, Michigan is famous for heavy snowfall, which also contributes to mole attacks. The more snow there is on the ground, the more insulation moles have against cold air, allowing them to stay warm and active throughout the winter. Snow cover also makes it harder to catch these pests as they burrow into your soil. Since many areas of Southeast Michigan are completely covered with snow for up to a third of the year, control must be proactive, getting rid of invaders during warm seasons so there are none left once the snow begins to fall.
Safari Tree's Mole Control ServiceSafari Tree’s mole control program is designed to eliminate rodent infestations quickly and comprehensively. When you report an infestation, we will:
- Survey the Scene- We begin by examining your property in detail and identifying all possible points of entry that moles might use. We make sure that you are dealing with moles specifically and not some other type of rodent. If they are to blame, we assess which tunnels they use for feeding, how deep those tunnels are, and how much moisture there is in the soil. All of these factors affect the type bait to use.
- Commence Mole Control- Once we understand the infestation in detail, we begin placing poison bait in active tunnels throughout the property. We then begin monitoring tunnel activity, adjusting our traps or bait as the rodent population declines.
- Respond & Replenish- As the number of invaders in your yard diminishes, their tunnels will begin to collapse, making it harder for the remaining moles to find our bait. We place additional bait in the ground to make sure all pests are eliminated.
