Don’t Make A Mountain Out Of A Mole Hill

To paraphrase Andy Rooney, “Do you ever wonder why God created Moles?” Those furry little creatures have laid waste and havoc to homeowners, municipalities, parks, ranches, farmers, and commercial growers for eons. These subterranean little mammals have conquered the underworld. They require little oxygen and tolerate high levels of carbon dioxide. They not only survive but thrive in the underground environment. Their powerful forelimbs are capable of moving more than 2500 lbs. of soil in a single season. Their diet consists of earthworms, grubs, soil born insects and various nuts. Moles do not hibernate and are most active February through May during the breeding season. Gestation is about 6 weeks before we welcome another 3-5 of these little critters into the underground world. Soon all of these little creatures strike out on their own seeking solitude and creating their own havoc. The East Coast of the United States is especially blessed as they lay claim to hosting three different species of Moles, the Eastern Mole, Star-Nosed Mole and the Hairy-tailed Mole.

The Eastern Mole is prevalent through much of the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, Midwest and the Eastern part of Texas. The Star-Nosed Mole is prevalent in the Eastern Provinces of Canada, the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and parts of the Southeast. Lastly the Hairy-Tailed Mole is prevalent in Eastern Provinces of Canada, the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and parts of the Southeast.

Moles by most standards are considered pests. Moles do not eat plant tissue as they are insectivores. They burrow just beneath the soil creating numerous mole mounds, destroying lawns and plant material in the process. There are a number of control applications that include poison bait, gassers, traps, repellers, and exclusion devices.

Poison Baits can be marginally effective but pose secondary kill issues. Gassers while popular are not an effective means to control Moles. Trapping remains one of the most effective means to control moles and other burrowing pests. Repellers offer an alternative to trapping for folks wishing to send the little critters to their neighbor’s yard. Lastly, for the people wishing to live in harmony with these destructive underground beasts there are Exclusion Devices that shield Moles from lawns and gardens.

GONZO® offers a full suite of products to help protect your lawn and garden from Moles, Gophers, Voles, and other burrowing pests.

Gardeners Demand More From Their Pest Control

With the growing interest in “eating clean,” more home gardeners are looking for ways to keep their growing methods organic. From the moment a seed goes into the soil until the day of harvest, these customers are looking for a way to grow organically.

These same gardeners also seek out organic pest control solutions, and you can provide for them by offering a selection of Safer® Brand insect, mite, weed and fungal control sprays. Each of these sprays is OMRI Listed®, meaning they have been reviewed by the Organic Materials Review Institute and are considered compliant for use in organic production.

To stand out from competitors, who often rely on synthetic chemicals that can linger in the ecosystem or even be ingested by the gardener, Safer® Brand uses four key ingredients in its garden pest control products:

PYRETHRIN

Safer® Brand pyrethrin products use PyGanic®, an OMRI Listed® source of this insecticide. How do pyrethrins work? They disrupt an insect’s nervous system, which leads to its quick death. Pyrethrins are derived from chrysanthemums, the popular flower known for its pest resistance.

NEEM OIL

Neem Oil is truly a miracle treatment for gardens under threat. Derived from the neem tree, it works as an insecticide, miticide and a fungicide, which means one spray can be used to combat all these problems. Even better, the EPA states that the oil has “no unreasonable adverse effects,” which makes it a great product for organic growers.

POTASSIUM SALTS OF FATTY ACIDS

This compound attacks the body coverings of insects, ultimately breaking down their cellular membranes. The cell contents leak out, which triggers an unstoppable dehydration process. Potassium salts of fatty acids are commonly referred to as soap salts, and especially effective against soft-bodied insects. Higher concentrations are effective against unwanted weeds and grasses.

SULFUR

The key component of fungicides, sulfur works to prevent fungal spores from germinating. It’s a naturally occurring element, and was once known as brimstone.
