Discover tips and tricks for identifying lawn pests, and learn how to get rid of them.

When moles are at work, you’ll see volcano-like mounds of soil and raised ridges (feeding tunnels) running through turf. The soil mounds are the spots where moles push to the surface all the soil they’re excavating from the deeper tunnels you can’t see. Moles tunnel through lawns feasting on insects, worms and grubs. They’re more common in overwatered lawns, because damp soil is easier to dig. Traps work but definitely have a high ick factor. Castor oil is effective in encouraging moles to move on. Use liquid or granular formulations.
