Mole coming out from hole in a lawn - Mole Control


Moles, despite their small size and elusive nature, can cause major disruptions to your property. Their tunneling activities can wreak havoc on lawns, gardens, and even structures. Effective mole control is vital for several reasons:

1. Prevent Lawn and Garden Damage

Moles’ tunnels ruin lawns and gardens, causing soil erosion, uneven ground, and damaged plant roots. Controlling moles keeps your landscape healthy and appealing.

2. Avoid Structural Damage

Moles’ digging can undermine patios, driveways, and foundations, leading to cracks and costly repairs. Prompt mole control protects your property’s structure.

3. Protect Landscaping Investments

Landscaping enhances your property’s value. Moles can uproot plants and disturb flower beds, undoing your efforts. Removing moles preserves your investment.


At Bobcat Wildlife & Pest Management, we provide comprehensive solutions for mole removal, ensuring your property remains undamaged and visually appealing. Our pest mole removal methods are thorough and considerate, addressing all aspects of mole activity to deliver effective results.

  • Humane Mole Control Methods:
    We use humane techniques to manage mole populations, ensuring ethical treatment of the animals while effectively resolving your issues. Our approach prioritizes both the well-being of the moles and the satisfaction of our clients.

  • Comprehensive Site Inspections:
    Our team conducts thorough site inspections to identify signs of mole activity, such as raised ridges, molehills, and underground tunnels. These detailed assessments allow us to accurately gauge the extent of the problem and determine the best course of action.

  • Effective Trapping Techniques:
    The most reliable way to remove moles is through trapping. Successfully trapping moles requires patience, perseverance, and proper trap placement over main runways. We utilize harpoon-style traps, which disturb the tunnel system the least, ensuring effective and humane removal.

    For a swift and efficient solution, we use our specialized rodent machine for tunnel treatments. This method is fast, effective, and minimizes disruption to your property while efficiently managing the mole population.

    We employ environmentally responsible methods to safeguard your family and minimize the impact on the local ecosystem. Our solutions are designed to maintain the natural balance of your area while effectively controlling mole populations.

Detecting mole activity early can help prevent significant damage to your property. Here are key indicators to watch for signs of moles in your yard:

1. Raised Ridges and Molehills

Look for raised ridges running across your lawn and molehills, which are mounds of soil created as moles dig their tunnels. These signs indicate active tunneling below the surface.

2. Damaged Plant Roots

Check for plants that appear wilted or unhealthy without an apparent cause. Moles often disturb plant roots as they dig, leading to damaged and stressed vegetation.

3. Soft, Spongy Ground

Walk around your yard and feel for areas where the ground feels unusually soft or spongy. This can be a sign of extensive underground tunnels disrupting the soil structure.

Highly recommend this group!!! Within 24 hours of my “something stinks” panic call, one of the techs, Ronnie, was at our place taking care of the animals that found their final resting place in our vents… and patched it up so we wouldn’t have this happen again. On-time, efficient, and very knowledgeable!!

I just wanted to email and let someone know how nice of a job Jared does when he comes out to treat the house. He always asks how things are and if I have any concerns. He checks things thoroughly each visit and addresses issues that need taken care of. He is very pleasant and professional.
