Consequently, are moles a sign of grubs?
Many turfgrass managers, gardeners and homeowners feel that the presence of moles is due to the presence of white grubs. Their first reaction is to apply a grub insecticide when mole activity begins in spring. Mounds of soil (molehills) and surface tunnels (feeding runways) are the common signs of mole presence.
One may also ask, what is the fastest way to get rid of moles in your yard? There are three methods to use in ridding your lawn of moles:
- Eliminate the food source of moles: insects, grubs, worms with a pesticide like Talstar which can be bought here.
- Repel the mole.
- Use a bait such as Mole Patrol to kill moles.
Herein, how do you get rid of grubs eating moles?
You can use beneficial nematodes and milky spore to kill grubs in your soil. Without food, moles will move on. However, this method is only partially effective. The moles eat earthworms along with other types of worms and insects.
Does GrubEx kill moles?
Two sources of food for moles are grubs (that is, the larvae of certain insects) and worms. Therefore, a simple first step you can take for mole control is to apply an insecticide, such as GrubEx (put out by Scotts), to your lawn that will kill grubs, thereby removing a food source for moles.
