Tuff Turf Molebusters turns 25!

January 28th, 2019 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Happy 25th Birthday to Tuff Turf Molebusters!  January 24, 1994 was the day Jim Zylstra incorporated Tuff Turf.  In 2000, Tuff Turf puchased a mole trapping company named Molebusters and officially became Tuff Turf Molebusters.  Jim had the unique idea to put a mole on the top of his truck in 2005.  By the end of 2006, most of trucks were topped with moles.  The bright green and orange color scheme came about in 2009 along with an updated logo featuring Digger the mole.  Tuff Turf has continued to grow and in 2018 moved to the heart of Byron Center.  Tuff Turf is proud to be celebrating 25 years in business!

Slime Mold

July 11th, 2014 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Slime Mold

The frequent rain has created an explosion of slime mold in the bark beds lately. While it may look like your dog was sick or your crazy uncle drank too much, it is a fungus. It is not toxic. It can be yellow, gray, black, or other colors. You don’t have to spray it with anything. Grab a shovel, dig it up, and throw it away. This is more common in beds that had fresh bark this spring.
