Moles, while considered rodents are actually insectivores. They are small creatures with long narrow snouts, tiny eyes, rounded bodies and powerful front claws that are ideal for digging and tunneling. In fact, moles have the ability to tunnel up to 100 feet each day and do so by lying on their side and pushing up to make a raised surface tunnel.
Moles prefer soft, most soil and their main food source is earthworms. They will also eat millipedes, centipedes and other soil-dwelling organisms frequently found in lawns and yards throughout our service areas.
Moles are not a health risk to humans and pets but are considered a nuisance pest based on the fact that their digging and tunneling often causes significant and expensive damage to landscaping.
Moles are a difficult pest to deter and that is why our mole solutions program includes a thorough inspection and highly effective control measures, as well as active monitoring.
Due to the complexity of treatment and the time commitment required, moles are generally not a pest many people have success in eradicating on their own. Pesticides can be harmful to people and pets if they are misused or mixed improperly and if you treat too much you may kill earthworms and other beneficial creatures.
Schendel is 100% committed helping you ASAP. In most cases, we can respond the same or very next day. Is the treatment safe? Schendel uses the least amount of material possible to solve the problem. We utilize natural products, baits and mechanical means as forms of treatment. When conventional materials are required, we follow very stringent guidelines to pose no threat to people, pets or plants. All products are found to be effective and registered by the EPA. Our service technicians will inform you of any specific safety measures that need to be taken.

"I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the courtesy always displayed when Derrick visits our office and showroom. He is polite and friendly and does his job efficiently. Today he even asked if he might assist us in tuning in our staticy radio we have at our front door. It took him less than a minute to see that we had wires miswired and corrected it. It was a small effort but greatly appreciated. He is a wonderful asset to your staff."
