Year of the mole...!

I've never seen so many moles destroying lawns this year . Some of my clients are battling them, I'll be spending alot of time on lawns catching the nuisance...

Lots around here too. I'm attributing it to higher worm populations due to the 3 consecutive years of wet weather we had, equaling higher food sources and conditions for worms to thrive.

Likewise...

This year has started off exceptionally well. The rut season is about over but there is still a lot of activity and the offspring will probably create even an larger problem in June as many people just ignore the problem. Looking forward to it!
