There are many animals that can be very detrimental to the health of Lawns and Turf! Moles, Voles, Raccoons, Skunks, Opossums, Ground Squirrels, Chipmunks, and Groundhogs can wreak havoc on your yard. When we come out to inspect, we will be able to tell you exactly which animal is causing the problem. We are able to solve all of these animal problems quickly and efficiently.
Moles create series of raised tunnels and dirt mounds, that can completely destroy your lawn. Mole damage can be very extensive. In some cases moles can damage underground irrigation systems and above ground swimming pool liners.
Voles dig snake-like trails through the lawn and landscaping. They also make little round holes the size of a quarter under concrete steps/decks/air conditioning units, etc. They eat the roots of plants, often killing plants and destroying landscaping.
Raccoons can completely tear apart a lawn looking for grubs, especially in the fall. Raccoon damage can be recognized as large chunks of turf torn apart and strewn about.
Skunks dig looking for grubs, worms, and insects and can fill your yard with divots and holes. You can identify skunk damage as small holes the size of a quarter to a half dollar.
Opossums damage can vary from large areas of lifted up turf caused by adult animals to smaller holes and areas caused by younger animals.
Ground squirrels make a series of tunnels and trails all throughout large open areas of lawn. You may see holes about the size of a silver dollar where they enter and exit. They love to eat your flowers and vegetation!
Chipmunks also make series of tunnels and trails through yards and especially landscaping. They typically like shady areas.
Groundhogs (aka Woodchucks) like to eat flowers, shrubs, and yard and garden vegetation. They also dig large tunnels under decks, sheds, birms, and hillsides. The burrow entrances are usually soccer ball to basketball size.
