Sometimes it helps to have a little luck. Our single mole control trap caught two Michigan moles!

Client Flags Mole Activity

April 19th, 2013 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Our client who lives on (or in) Reeds Lake flagged his new mole activity for us. We might have to check back on this lawn a little later before we do any mole control… give it an hour or two to dry.

Myth buster on moles

April 12th, 2013 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Myth buster: Moles can be drowned out of the lawn with a garden hose. TRUTH: God turned on His garden hose on Monday, and everybody’s lawn has been under water this week. When the lawns dry up, we will actually see a lot more mole activity than before this week of rain.

10,000 moles trapped in 7 years

July 9th, 2012 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

We just trapped our 10,000 mole!  While we have been busting moles prior to 2000, we did not start keeping count of the moles we trap until 2005.

First Mole of the Year

March 22nd, 2012 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

We have officially killed our first mole of the year.  We are hoping to break another record this year.

We Have Bad Gas

April 11th, 2011 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Carbon Monoxide to be more specific. We purchased a carbon monoxide compressor. We can inject Carbon Monoxide into the ground at 120 psi per injector at 4 different injection locations. The compressor will fill a 200 foot long mole tunnel with Carbon Monoxide in seconds. Any mole or vole in those tunnels will die within seconds. The gas will travel a couple hundred feet into any tunnels in the surrounding area that is connected to the tunnels in your lawn.

Winter Mole Activity

February 25th, 2011 by Tuff Turf Molebusters

Last week when the weather warmed up and the snow melted for a day or two our phones were ringing off the hook!  Customers were calling in to sign up for mole control programs because the melting of the snow uncovered yards full of mole trails.  It sounds like there was a lot of mole activity going on this winter!  One of our frequently asked questions is  “Moles are dormant in winter, right?” In fact moles don’t hibernate nor do worms. The moles follow worms deep into the ground as both try to avoid freezing.  Most of the moles deeper (older) tunnels remain comfortable throughout the winter. Winter damage by moles usually occurs during unseasonably warm periods or beneath the insulation of heavy snow. Moles can’t hibernate because they don’t store food or fat.  This fact shows the importance of a good mole control program during the summer so that the moles don’t continue to repopulate and further damage your lawn during the winter.

We found 3 frozen moles in traps under the snow.  That is a good way to preserve them!
