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.

KILL, REPEL & PREVENT
Ridding your property of these burrowing pests can be a daunting task, but GONZO offers 3 ways to keep ahead of the vermin.

KILL: GONZO® offers more than 10 different kinds of traps for Moles, Gophers and Voles that will help you address specific problems no matter where in the country you happen to live.

REPEL: Drive pests from your lawn and garden using the GONZO® Sonic Spike Repellers. They’ll humanely push burrowing pests towards the perimeter of your property and off to greener pastures.

PREVENT: Barrier protection like GONZO® Gopher Shields and GONZO® Garden Shields will prevent burrowing pest from getting to your new plantings and the soft roots that they so much enjoy eating.

Check with your Arett representative to see all that GONZO® has to offer.

All GONZO® products are backed by our satisfaction guarantee against all defects in workmanship. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with this product, simply return the product with proof of purchase within 30 days for a complete refund.

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.

GET TO KNOW THE SAFER® SEVEN

With the growing importance of organics to your customers’ buying decisions, you need to upgrade your pest control lineup. To do so, turn to Safer® Brand and its line of OMRI Listed® products. To cover all your bases, from total insect control to fungi/disease control to weed control, check out the lineup we call The Safer Seven:

  1. Neem Oil Spray (5180-6) is Safer® Brand’s newest product and features neem oil to battle insects, mites and fungus without any need for mixing the neem. Active Ingredients: Neem Oil
  2. EndALL ® Insect Killer® (5102-6) is a patented, unique formulation that kills insects from eggs to adults. Active Ingredients: Neem Oil, Potassium Salts of Fatty Acids
  3. Tomato & Vegetable Insect Killer (5085-6) appeals to customers who shop by specific issue (tomatoes are the most commonly home-grown garden plant). Active Ingredients: Pyrethrins, Potassium Salts of Fatty Acids
  4. Insect Killing Soap (5110-6) is the original organic gardening insecticide and remains one of the most popular solutions for insect control. Consumers seek this product by name!  Active Ingredient:Potassium Salts of Fatty Acids
  5. 3-in-1 Garden Spray (5452-6) is a product for consumers who do not know what is causing their plant problems: 3-in-1 takes care of insects, mites and fungi. Active Ingredients: Sulfur, Potassium Salts of Fatty Acids
  6. Garden Fungicide (5450 -6) is a fast-acting fungicide that solves numerous types of plant disease or fungi issues. Active Ingredient: Sulfur
  7. Weed & Grass Killer (5055-6) is a for-organic-gardening weed killer that appeals to consumers who want to avoid glyphosate. Active Ingredient: Potassium Salts of Fatty Acids
