Mole in Lawn


Scalopus Aquaticus

Moles dig tunnels through the soil to create burrows for the use of feeding, which causes the grass to dry out and die.

Ineffective Control

Insecticides, castor oil, chewing gum, grain or peanut mole poisons, do not cure the problem.


  • 1 acre of land = 3 moles
  • Eat more than their weight in earthworms daily
  • Moles are targeting earthworms not grubs 
  • They prefer well-drainded, loamy soils


  • Mole traps
  • Talapid (Bait worms)
