While you likely won’t spot the moles directly, there are clear indicators that moles have decided to invade your property. Here are some of the clearest signs that you may need yard mole removal in Illinois.
Perhaps the clearest sign of moles is the holes that they make in your yard. If your lawn has symmetrical, circular mounds of dirt that resemble little volcanoes, these are likely to be mole holes.
Moles will use these holes as entry and exit ways.
If you have moles on your property, you may experience surface tunnels along with mole holes. The vast majority of their tunnels are underground, but sometimes these tunnels will manifest as approximately 3-inch raised dirt ridges that will sometimes connect the mole holes.
Moles will use these tunnels to feed on grubs and other food.
Damage to your yard and garden could indicate that moles have arrived. You may also have soil that feels loose, raised, or “squishy.” However, the amount of damage to your yard typically has no bearing on how many moles are actually on your property.
