Oregon Mole Removal from Yard
How the heck do I get rid of moles in my yard! This is a common questions we are asked after people have tried to remove the moles from there own yard. Moles can cause alot of yard damage in a short amount of time. I would say that moles and then maybe rodents cause people the most frustration. Below is an example of the most common questions we receive from people about mole damage.
My name is Alex and I am from Portland, Oregon. I found your website and was wondering if you could help me with my mole problem. I have moles in my front yard and moles in my back yard. They keep pushing up new dirt mounds every day, I clean them up but they are always back the next day. I recently put down a spike that is suppose to cause the moles to leave my yard. It seems to have done nothing but possible cause them to dig more. I am on a limited budget, I was wondering if your could help me get rid of moles in my yard!"
I could tell that Alex was very frustrated about the mole problem, so I called to see how I could help. After about 5 minutes of talking I had an a pretty good idea that she was having a gopher problem and not a mole problem in her yard.
It can be very hard to remove a problem critter if you can not identify it. Alex had used the wrong traps and also used the spikes (that in my opinion do not work) trying to trap moles out of the yard. Alex was very relieved and I was able to come out and solve the problem with a week. Everyone was happy, except the gophers that were removed from her yard.

How Not to Control Gopher Damage:
Many homeowner's first response is to look for a poison or sound making devices sold at most large stores. These products are not the best way to handle a gopher problem. Poison's can kill non target animals and noise making spikes most commonly do not work or just move the problem to another area for a short time.
