How to Stop Moles from Tearing Up Your Yard
LESLIE: Now we’ve got Claude in Georgia on the line who’s dealing with some unwanted visitors. You’ve got moles in the yard. Tell us about them.
CLAUDE: These moles are tearing up my yard. I haven’t found anything that can stop them.
TOM: Well, we can stop them for you, Claude.
TOM: Here’s what you need to do. First of all, you need to realize why they’re there and they’re there because they’re hungry. And what they’re hungry for are the insects that are in your lawn, most specifically grubs. Grubs are like a delicacy to moles and they love to eat them. So, if you treat your lawn with a grub product to control the grubs, then they will completely go away.
So, the solution here, Claude, is for you to use grub control. That’s going to eliminate the grubs in the grass and if you eliminate the grubs, you’ll eliminate the moles. Well, you won’t totally eliminate them; they’ll just go to your neighbors and chew on their lawns for a while.
TOM: Bayer Advanced is a manufacturer that we recommend. And they have a season-long grub-control product that’s also a turf revitalizer. So you might want to take a look at that product, apply it to your lawn, follow the label directions. Get rid of the grubs and the moles will follow by leaving your property and trying to find other places to eat.
I know that it can be a very annoying problem and they really can tear up a lawn. But if you get rid of the insects, you’ll get rid of the moles. OK?
CLAUDE: OK. You’re recommending Bayer Advanced?
TOM: Bayer Advanced Grub Control.
CLAUDE: Alright. I’ll get out there tomorrow and buy some and try it.
TOM: Alright. Give it a shot. I’m sure it’ll work well for you. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
