Moles are constantly on the hunt for food, searching day and night for earthworms, beetles, grubs, ants and cicadas. They have a very high metabolic rate, which requires them to eat 50 to 100 percent of their body weight each day. Mole damage appears as raised tunneling or soft spots in the turf often referred to as mole hills, which resemble an eruption of soil through the turf. Your local Lawn Doctor offers a selection of Mole Control Programs that provide economical and effective ways to reduce future turf damage caused by moles, and to maintain the quality landscape you want for your home.
Fire Ant Control
Fire ants are destructive insects that can infest lawns, ornamental beds and homes. Fire ants create underground tunnels, causing damage to your lawn and landscape while feeding on seeds and young plants, resulting in large, highly visible mounds that can ruin the appearance and value of your landscape. Fire ants are also known for inflicting painful and sometimes dangerous stings on humans and pets.
The threat of being stung by a fire ant can impact your desire to spend time outdoors with family and friends. With just one fire ant control treatment, Lawn Doctor can eliminate the infestation of fire ants for up to one full year – so these insects won’t damage your yard or ruin your outdoor activities.
