Mounds of dirt

Asked June 17, 2019, 7:37 PM EDT

Mounds of dirt on my lawn with no observable tunnels on the surface of the lawn. Moles or voles and how do I get rid of them? My lawn service uses grub repellant.

It's been seven days since I asked my question and haven't received an answer.

Hi:
I submitted a reply, but I don't see it. If you have mounds of dirt, it is from moles. Voles don't tunnel in dirt, though they will use old tunnels. Moles feed on earthworms and other soil dwelling organisms along with grubs, so having the yard treated for grubs still leaves them worms. There is probably just one present. Moles are territorial. Also, they often move through an area quickly. The metal traps do work for controlling them. This link has more information:

Thanks for the response.
