Customer Question

I just moved into a home that is located in Southern part of Alabama. I've never had this problem before in my life but I think I may have moles in my yard. When I walk on my lawn the ground feels really soft in some areas. When I first moved here I thought it was the carpet grass I had but now I've noticed how it's pushed up some. I haven't seen any of the little critters yet but is there a way to really get rid of them?

The best way to get rid of moles is to trap/kill them. My favorite is the spring-loaded traps that shoot spikes down.

I live on little more than 3/4 acres. Should I expect to have a lot of them to kill. I can't seem to notice any in my neighbor's yard.
