Do you wonder what causes those zigzag paths of dead grass across the yard? By the time you realize you have a lawn mole problem, the damage is done. Galbraith’s Landscaping & Lawn Care puts affordable, professional mole elimination and prevention techniques to work around your home or business, and we offer the best lawn restoration services in the greater Fort Wayne area.
They don’t grow bigger here in northeast Indiana, but these chipmunk-sized rodents inflict expensive damage on residential and commercial properties. One lawn mole consumes approximately 50 pounds of insects, grubs and worms every year, and its main dining room lies right below your yard. Moles can excavate an 18-foot tunnel in an hour as they forage underneath your lawn. They aren’t blind, and they have a keen sense of smell. These pests don’t just eat their way through your yard. They build nests, mate and raise families.
Reading the molehill landscape isn’t hard once you understand their habits. Large dirt piles mark the nest, smaller hills follow the direction of deep tunnels, and a raised line of turf indicates shallow underpasses. All this digging puts severe strain on your lawn’s root system. It destabilizes surface soil creating walking hazards, and it can pose structural problems under patios and sidewalks. Lawn moles destroy gardens, ruin natural pathways and undermine the beauty and value of your property.
While you might be tempted to try a DIY approach to the problem, home remedies and repellants are temporary at best.

Mole Control Service
Eliminate Moles from the Lawn
We generally combine trapping with a grub control treatment to help eliminate a potential food source. Our trapping service sets several traps in a zone of damage. Since moles are very solitary this usually means one mole’s feeding area. We can setup several zones if different areas of the yard are affected. When one of our traps trip then contact us and we will return to either check and reset the traps or remove the captured mole.
We generally try to check our traps every 5 days. But, if a trap is tripped between visits then simply call us and let us know. We will be by to check it asap.
