The symptoms include tunneling under the soil which pushes up the dirt and sod. When you walk over the soil, the affected areas will feel very soft.
Moles can easily be identified by their short, thick body with velvety fur, pointed snout, front enlarged feet, and rounded sharp claws.
The best way to control moles is by getting rid of their food source, which are grubs. By cutting off the food source, moles usually leave the area. Spring Touch can help remove these pests by putting down a special bait that kills the moles.
Grubs can destroy a lawn within a short amount of time.
The symptoms are brown patches, irregular in shape, in late spring or early fall. Dead patches roll back easily, like a section of carpet. Birds, moles, raccoons, and skunks may damage a lawn looking for these grubs.
Grubs are the larvae of many kinds of beetles. They are whitish or grayish in color with brown heads and dark hind parts. They have three pair of legs, which distinguishes them from the legless billbug grubs. The adult beetles appear around the garden in late spring or early summer.
If your lawn is already infested with grubs, keep in mind that they are insulated by a layer of grass, leaves, thatch, and soil. We apply this control by spreading a granular treatment as needed. Applications need to reach below the soil surface and be watered in to be effective.
