Sioux Falls mole control

We are experts in mole control and are not your typical Sioux Falls, South Dakota 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 Sioux Falls 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?

Every wildlife situation is different: How many moles? Size of lawn? Do you need trapping, prevention, repairs? Call us and we can give pricing for your specific situation.

Sioux Falls mole pest control animal tip: Mole Repellent

There are those property owners who, when confronted with an unwanted mole on their property, will try "other alternatives" before resorting to setting traps. After all, setting a mole trap is an activity that takes time and energy, and can be quite a gruesome one if you opt for spring traps.

So instead, you might be tempted by natural (or store-bought) mole repellents, and it's the purpose of this article to discuss their efficiency.


Mothballs are suggested as a possible repellent to pretty much any pest possible, but the truth is, they work fairly poorly. Since the amount of ammonia contained is only really enough to harm a moth, a mothball will make little impression on a 13-inch mole. At best, the mammal will only find this a minor nuisance.

Cayenne pepper

Online, you will find various concoctions, like castor oil mixed with cayenne pepper (or various combinations, most including the pepper) to deter moles from digging under your property. But like the mothballs, these are fairly useless against moles and need to be re-applied frequently, otherwise they lose their scent.


A popular recommendation is to plant garlic in your garden since moles allegedly don't like the scent of garlic. While this may be a better option than the above two, it is still fairly unsuccessful. If you're bent on using a natural repellent, then either garlic or chocolate lilies (another scent moles are believed to dislike) are probably your best bets, though.

Store-bought repellents

A store-bought repellent is far more efficient than a natural repellent, although you should make sure you buy something organic (or else, you risk doing more damage to your garden). There are certain store-bought options that give off a scent mimicking that of a mole predator, and thus scare the moles away. While these are thought to be more efficient than natural repellents, they're still not foolproof, and may not yield a satisfactory result.

Movement and noise

Moles are fairly blind creatures and as such, they dislike movement and noise. This is why some people think it's useful to use auditory or vibrating repellents planted in or around their tunnels. And while the general consensus seems to be that vibrating repellents are more potent than noise ones, these types of repellents still aren't likely to do that much damage.

All in all, mole repellents may work, though for a limited time if you don't take any other steps against them.
