Do you have trouble with moles or voles? Maybe even a gopher or two? Are you fed up with all those tunnels making your yard look like a race track? We are a licensed pesticide applicator with the State of Wisconsin, and we can help!
The product that we use for mole extermination, called Talpirid, was developed and tested for more that 5 years by a Wisconsin company called Bell Laboratories. The program is a 3 step process in which involves three steps/visits from us.
Step 1: Site Assessment
On this first visit to your location, we will determine exactly where in your yard the moles are currently working and the extent of the infestation for the D.N.R. (Department of Natural Resources) permitting. We will apply for this permit on your behalf.
Step 2: Baiting
This second step is usually done within 48 hours of the first visit to your location. During this step, will be the actual baiting of the moles.
The bait itself is the likeness of an earthworm which is dropped right into the tunnel that the mole has been digging.
Step 3: Follow-up
During the follow-up visit, we will determine if the mole extermination is complete or if more bait is needed due to heavier infestations.
If you would like more information, we can send it to you regarding the product Talpirid along with our rate structure.

That actually depends on a couple of things.
On an average size yard with an average infestation, the three visit treatment will cost around $250.00.
If you are looking to have just the initial assessment done, the cost for an average city lot is $75.00 plus tax.
You will probably never see the moles eat the bait. You will more than likely not see them dead either as they die under the ground. There will be no dead moles to get rid of or smell!
Moles are not considered rodents. Moles are considered mammals such as raccoons, skunks, or opossums. To that end, the D.N.R. (Department of Natural Resources) requires a permit for small mammal control. At this time, the D.N.R. does not charge any money for this permit.
Yes, you can apply the mole bait yourself. Talpirid is a non-restricted use pesticide. This means that as long as you are applying the bait for your own use and not for hire, you are perfectly able to purchase and use the bait yourself.
Talpirid comes in a box of 20 earthworm baits. The cost is $46.00 per box, plus you will need to pay any applicable sales tax and shipping costs. Of course, if you pick the bait up from us, there will be no shipping charge.
If you think you still have moles digging within 14 days of our original service to you, then we come back and perform the baiting and follow-up services which will be billed to you. However, there would be no site assessment charge services.
After 14 days, if the moles return, it would be considered a new service call to you and you would be charged for the comlpete service.
Unfortunately, there is no known scientifically proof-tested product that keeps moles from coming back from outlying areas in your yard. Although there are some products on the market that say they can keep moles away, we just don't have any proof of that.
So, to answer your question of guaranteed extermination, the answer is yes and no. We will guarantee to remove the current mole infestation within the first two weeks. However, we are unable to guarantee this extermination service beyond the two weeks as we have no way of keeping new moles from moving into the dead mole tunnels.
