How Do You Get Rid Of Moles And Shrews?
Conventional wisdom tells us that there are three ways to get rid of moles and shrews:
- Placing bait in the holes in order to trap or poison the moles.
- Using mechanical traps to catch or kill moles.
- Killing the grubs they feed on.
While all three of these work to a certain extent, they also have their share of problems.
Poisoning the pests creates the risk that pets or other animals will consume the poisoned corpse, which can result in the wrong animal dying.
Trapping them can be effective if done correctly, but it’s easy to get wrong, and it can be very time-consuming to do yourself. You need to set the traps properly, cover them, check them, remove the dead animals, and re-set the traps.
And while you may be able to kill the grubs, beneficial earthworms are one of the primary items in moles’ diets, and you don’t want to get rid of those. Besides, removing the grubs makes lawns healthier, which attracts earthworms and their predators, so it does nothing to get rid of your vermin problem.
In fact, getting rid of a mole’s food supply may trigger it to dig even more to look for food, thus inducing it to do even more damage, so that strategy actually makes the problem worse.
