Tick Control

My Lawn Looks Awful!

Feb 13, 2018 | News

Moles: 
Moles are insectivores that feed on insects, grubs, and mainly earthworms. Moles are underground dwellers.

Voles: 
Voles are vegetarians that mainly feed on berry-bearing trees, shrubs, and   droppings. Voles will leave runs on the surface of the grass areas and sometimes dig tunnels.

If open-end tunnels are witnessed you may have voles rather than moles. Voles are treated differently with grain baits. Our technicians will determine which animal it may be and bait appropriately.

We offer a mole control baiting called TALPRID. However, due to the unpredictable outcome of baiting, and due to the moles feeding habits, we are unable to offer any warranty on this service. It has about a 70% success rate. Our price will vary with town. (Labor & Material) One trip is usually all that is required unless there are multiple moles or there is continues pressure from wooded areas surrounding the property.  Multiple trips to the property to re-bait will cost half price if desired. FHS offers price protection contracts for high-pressured properties.

After ten (10) days rake out dirt mounds. To determining results, look for new activity. Please call and schedule your half price visit if any activity is found.

Please keep all children and pets out of treated area during this period.

Contact us today or call us at (800) 649-9992 for your free estimate with on-site analysis (our price is based on square footage).
