Controlling Voles, Moles And Gophers

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Skunk Whisperer does not offer lethal mole or gopher removal, and live trapping methods do not work well. Most people choose to have lethal mole and gopher trapping or poisoning done because it is the most cost effective method.

Our company offers the below two mole and gopher removal methods, but because they are expensive, most people choose to call companies who offer lethal control.

  • Castor oil applications to the lawn every other week all year long as a taste-deterring repellent.
  • Metal barriers to forbid moles and gophers from entering lawn.

When more successful and less expensive non-lethal options are invented, we will use them, but, at this time, we only offer expensive metal barriers and repellent applications.

Moles, gophers and voles are known for their ability to quickly turn a beautiful lawn into an ugly, sometimes hazardous environment complete with messy dirt and many holes. If you want to rapidly feel inferior to wildlife, The Skunk Whisperer recommends attempting to eliminate these destructive critters on your own.

There are many misconceptions and wives tales about how to deal with mole problems including the belief that there exists effective, cost efficient, humane options for controlling them. Such as simply laying out vole traps, mole traps, and/or gopher traps. However, this is not the case. Gopher control and removal is complex.

The bottom line is that most of the popular mole and gopher removal and prevention methods do not work, if they did we would be happy to use them. Sometimes these methods appear to work when in fact they have not, this is because mole and gopher activity is intermittent – they may be gone now, but will be back soon.

Just the same there are some steps you can take to help deter their activities or divert the damage they do away from the beautiful surface of your lawn. Understanding more about moles can also be helpful as well.
