Moles in New Hampshire are mainly active spring and fall, and in rainy seasons. Moles are carnivores (meat eaters) they dine on earthworms and grubs in your lawn. They burrow just below the surface In search of their food. In rainier times and if a client has irrigation, the added moisture saturates the soil, bringing earthworms to the surface where moles can hunt and dine on a concentrated amount of worms. For this reason, we get more mole call in spring and fall when rain is more prevalent as well as sept/october due to white grub (Japanese beetle etc) life cycles.

Critter Control of New Hampshire uses a trapping program to effectively control moles in your yard. It may look like you have 100 moles, but mole populations in New Hampshire usually average 1-3 moles in a typical residential yard. 

We place multiple traps in your yard and check traps every 5-7 days and continue trapping until no more mole activity is present. Mole traps are placed in areas of the lawn containing the damage and different types/styles of traps are utilized based on soil type and mulch areas.

Common species is the eastern mole, but occasional star nosed moles are also culprits.
