Moles are a common pest in Upstate NY and Western Vermont, and while they rarely enter a structure, they can still cause damage to your property and home. Moles like to burrow, and their extensive underground tunneling often destroys lawns, gardens, driveways, sidewalks and pathways. When these tunnels are close to your house, they can allow water, moisture and moss to pool around your home’s foundation, creating an inviting environment for other insects and pests that thrive in damp conditions.
Our Mole Pest Control Process
At Nature’s Way Pest Control, we use an all-natural granular product to eliminate moles from your property. Made of a proprietary blend of castor oil, white peppermint and peppermint oil, the product is applied directly to all molehills, as well as the surrounding area by a professionally-trained mole exterminator.
How it Works
To work properly, the product needs at least ¼ inch of water. When the water hits the granular pellet, the molecules from inside the pellet seep down into the soil approximately 1 ½ to 2 feet. Once the product is in the soil, it effects the moles’ sense of taste and smell, driving them out of the area.
For the best results, we recommend monthly treatments April through October. First to eradicate the initial infestation of moles in your yard, then to prevent them from returning.

Moles are small mammals (not rodents), no more than 7 inches long, with velvety fur, stunted back legs, powerful forelimbs and large paws for digging. They have a hairless, pointed snout, very small eyes and no visible ears.
Moles live their lives underground. They spend their time digging extensive tunnels and foraging for insects and food, mostly earthworms and insect larvae. A permanent tunnel is typically about 2 inches in diameter and 8 to 12 inches below ground, while temporary tunnels may be right under the surface.
Since moles are rarely seen above ground, the most common way to determine if you have moles is from their molehills, or small mounds of dirt, near the opening of their tunnels. If you suspect you have a mole problem, please contact us, so that we can provide you with a free inspection and advise you on the best treatment plan for your property.
