We are experts in mole control and are not your typical Austin, Texas pest control or exterminator company. First, we do not use poisons or the majority of repellents, since they do not work. Moles are difficult to remove and can only really be completely removed from your yard with mole traps, a process we have practiced and perfected over the years. In addition, if a mother mole has babies, we will make sure to remove her pups by hand before dealing with the mother mole. We are not a typical Austin mole exterminator company. We completely solve your mole problem by taking these steps:
- Inspect the entire property grounds - lawn, yard, garden, etc.
- Set several pro traps in mole tunnels - the correct and safe way!
- Remove all moles as they are caught and monitor for activity
- Once there is no more activity and no more moles caught, we're done
- When needed, fill in tunnels and seal with underground fencing
What Prices Do We Charge?

Austin mole pest control animal tip: Mole behavior: how do moles live and dig?
Moles are one creature you barely see outside running around. However, the presence of molehills which they make while digging tunnels in your lawn or garden clearly announces their presence. Have you always wanted to know a thing or two about these underground pests, most especially their behavioral patterns? Right here, we will be taking you through how they live and dig.
How Do Moles Live?
Moles are solitary creatures, hence each mole has its tunnel which measures between 4 cm. high, and 5 cm. wide. Whenever they are digging close to the surface of the lawn, they gently push the collected soil in a vertical manner above the soil. These displaced soils thrown outside the tunnels form the molehills that you see on the surface of your lawn.
There are situations where the tunnel of a mole overlaps with that of another. Being solitary animals, they try as much as possible to avoid one another except during breeding seasons when they have to come together to mate. A confrontation of two males usually ends up in a fierce fight which often results in the death of one of the moles.
For an animal that lives most of its life in a tunnel with darkness and barely comes out, of what need are big eyes? Moles have tiny eyes that see fairly with no good sense of smell, but their limited vision is complemented by their sensitivity to touch and vibrations from their surroundings. By using their sensitive whiskers, moles can find sources of food and water.
With these sensitive organs in place, a young mole can find itself a new home when it comes out of its mother's burrow. This is the only time you might see moles above the ground moving from one place to another searching for a comfortable place to start a life. Moles can decide to emerge at night, but even at this time of the day, they are susceptible to predators.
How Do Moles Dig?
Moles dig tunnels fashionably and interestingly. It's a state-of-the-art process that requires just their paddle-like feet. While digging, moles use their right foot to push the soil in an upward manner towards the molehill direction, while the hind feet are held against the tunnel. The left foot simultaneously digs at the other end of the wall and the process continues.
To move around in the tunnel, moles are flexible enough to run backward and turn right around by somersaulting. The velvet fur at the back of this animal allows it to move around the tunnel without getting stuck.
