narrow lawn trenches

Asked March 23, 2020, 4:53 PM EDT

my lawn has 2-3" wide by 1" deep trenches zigzagging on my front lawn. I suspect mole, but I thought that they dig under ground?

Yes you have moles. They have been very busy over winter, and they can destroy a lawn overnight. Read more here: https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/caution_moles_at_work

Unfortunately the only proven control method that works is to trap them. There are a number of different mole traps on the market, none user friendly, all with a bit of a learning curve.

Good luck!
