Mole Damage during a Michigan Winter

Mole-in-snow

A common myth among home owners is that moles hibernate during winter.  Unfortunately, moles are active even throughout the colder months.  Here’s what you can do to control them.

Moles are one of the most common lawn pests in West Michigan.  Although one might assume they hibernate over the winter, they typically just bury deeper down in search of food during the colder months.  As we encounter brief thaws between snow accumulations, you might notice indications of mole damage (hyperlink “indications of mole damage” to: https://www.aaalawncare.com/blog/spring-time-moles ).  Your first instinct will probably be to address the issue immediately.  However, the most effective mole treatments (including the bait AAA Lawn Care uses) are not much use until the ground thaws.

So, what can you do?  Once the weather warms up and the ground thaws, flatten out the mole runs and mounds throughout the lawn.  This is an important step, because that damage could have been from the late fall or early winter (and the moles may have since moved on).  If new damage appears after the initial mounds were flattened, it may be time to invest in a solution.  AAA Lawn Care’s mole control program is guaranteed to get rid of your lawn moles.  Our program runs all the way through the end of the year and includes any additional visits for new moles at no additional charge.
