Mammalian insectivores, moles are often confused with rodents, though the two creatures keep different diets and habits. While the eastern mole is the most prevalent species in North America, hairy-tailed and Western North American moles also inhabit specific regions in the United States. The animals are particularly annoying for home and business owners who maintain expensive landscaping. Mole problems are common in Virginia Beach, but we are experienced in mole removal.

Let our trained technicians use their expertise to eradicate mole problems quickly and efficiently. Some different methods we can use to get rid of moles include:
- High-acid soil
- Traps placed at the end of burrows
Common Mole Problems
- Moles use many different burrows, so it is difficult to consider the job done after just one burrow is addressed.
- Because they find everything they need outside, people do not normally see moles inside buildings. Their damage is primarily outside.
Since they tunnel so close to ground surfaces, moles often leave behind unsightly mounds of upturned dirt and kill grass and other plants when they burrow into the ground. As infestations of moles grow, they are capable of more destruction and can totally ruin otherwise aesthetically pleasing fields, as well as destroy crop yields for farmers. Additionally, the mammals inhabit sports fields, rendering them unusable.
Full-Service Mole Removal
Employing mole control methods can be tedious and expensive. Unless affected property owners have the time to monitor traps and plant boundaries to exclude the small mammals from the area, specialized services should be enlisted to eliminate mole infestations. Flooding a molehill is sometimes effective during the spring. However, adult moles are usually able to flee and later re-inhabit the area.
