Mole problems

Asked April 20, 2017, 12:29 PM EDT

Hello! We have had mole issues for the past couple of summers and have used Grub Killer. It's worked quite well except for last year when the moles returned in late August/early Sept. What month would you suggest we apply the Grub Killer to make it the most effective? Thanks SO much! Sylvia

The reason that the moles returned is because they eat more than grubs so if you really want to get rid of them it may be necessary to trap them. Here is a really good article that explains moles behavior and how to get rid of them. http://extensionpublications.unl.edu/assets/html/g1538/build/g1538.htm . There are numerous grub killers so it depends on what the label says. Here is another article that talks about different grub killers and when to apply. http://msue.anr.msu.edu/news/how_to_choose_and_when_to_apply_grub_control_products_for_your_lawn
