Moles & Gophers - Pest Control & Extermination | Elite Home Services

Moles & Gophers

Moles are small, burrowing mammals that can cause a lot of damage to your yard. They tunnel underground, making it difficult for grass and other plants to grow. Moles also eat insects, which can be beneficial to your lawn. However, their digging can disrupt the roots of your plants and damage your lawnmower.


There are a few signs that you may have moles in your yard. Uneven or raised patches of grass are usually an indication that moles have been tunneling underground. Mounds of dirt or raised soil are another sign that moles are present. If you see these signs, it’s important to take action to get rid of the moles.

How to Handle Moles & Gophers

Gophers are slightly larger than moles, with bodies that can grow up to 14 inches long. They have small eyes and ears, and their front legs are shorter than their back legs. This gives them a hunched appearance when they walk. Gophers are brown or gray, with light-colored bellies. Like moles, gophers live in underground burrows and are mostly active at night. Gophers eat plants, roots, and seeds.


Moles and gophers can cause a lot of damage to yards and gardens. Their burrowing disrupts the roots of plants, which can kill the plants. In addition, moles and gophers leave behind unsightly mounds of dirt. These animals can also damage irrigation systems and other underground utilities.
