“You’re making a mountain out of a molehill.” It’s a common phrase indicating someone blowing things out of proportion to the problem at hand, but when those “little” molehills are popping up all over your lawn, it is a big problem. Moles are burrowing rodents that do their damage between six and 12 inches under the surface. Like tiny prisoners digging tunnels out of prison, they have to find a way to dispose of the dirt they displace. They don’t have a prison yard to shake the dirt out of their pockets, so they dump it onto your grass.
The small mounds of dirt aren’t a problem initially, but soon they are everywhere, and your plants begin to wither and die as moles displace the dirt around the roots. Gardening catalogs offer mole bait, poison, and even spring-loaded traps, but those are ineffective, dangerous and don’t solve the problem. When it comes to a mole infestation, give the team at Go-Pher The Kill a call and solve your problem permanently.
