Your Mole Experts

Moles in New Hampshire are mainly active in the spring, fall, and rainy seasons. Moles are carnivores (meat eaters). They dine on earthworms and grubs in your lawn. In search of food, they burrow just under the surface of your lawn, creating raised areas of turf.

In wet conditions, the added moisture saturates the soil, bringing earthworms to the surface where moles can hunt and dine on a concentrated amount. For this reason, we get more mole calls in the spring and fall when rain is more prevalent, as well as September/October due to white grub (Japanese beetle etc.) life cycles.

Effective Trapping

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 in a typical residential yard. 

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

The most common species is the eastern mole, but occasionally star nosed moles are also culprits.
