Keeping The Pests Away

posted in: Pest Control | 0

We all like spending time outside in the garden. We are not fond however of vermin spoiling the fun. Ultrasonic devices, electronic yard fences and strobe lights – these are the technology at present that helps us eradicate these annoying pests in a safer way. No need to worry of getting caught in your own trap, or being poisoned by the pesticide or chemical that you placed because there is no more use for that now. Kids and old people alike can freely go around the garden because it is safe, and likewise animals that do not create trouble can also visit the garden.

These devices will help you eliminate unwelcome guests. Gophers, moles, squirrels, deer, cats, dogs and other animals that are not welcome will stay away and your conscience is clean because you haven’t hurt anyone at all. These ultrasonic devices work by using high frequency sound or vibration that hurts the animal’s ears, keeping them away. I have a friend who absolutely despised the squirrels in her yard. Her house, her vegetation, her chairs on the deck – all ruined. She decided to buy an ultrasonic device and after the installation, it worked wonders! Today, she is contented and its obvious the squirrels lived to haunt another house.

Gophers and moles can do significant damage to your yard, shrubberies and plants. With all the surface tunnels and heaps of soil on your newly mowed lawn, that is sure to give you a headache and a pain in the feet because you might trip yourself going all about the damages they have caused. Because their home is situated below the ground, what they usually do is burrow their way up making an aeration tube for them to use. The problem is they do it in your well-cared yard. They can dig burrows to a length of quite a few miles with a depth ranging from two to five feet. They are born to dig and will have up to 12 babies per litter. What they eat, they automatically convert it to energy so their bodies do not stock up fat and that is why they do not hide away and sleep. The mole eats approximately 40 pounds of food every year. It’s their way of life -dig, eat, dig eat. Plants need worms to ventilate the soil for their development. Now, moles hinder these developments by eating the worms. Gophers eat roots and plant material.

The moles do roundabouts when making above the ground tunnels while gophers do it in line form but it’s not quite often you see above the ground tunnels made by gophers. Moles create mounds that is similar to a volcano, but only in minute size. The gopher’s mound on the other hand forms like a kidney bean. If you have a garden covered in healthy flourishing lawns, these creatures will be all over the place. Tree roots, grains, grasses, shrubs and some of the vegetables such as carrots, peas and beans are often the target of gophers and moles to chew on. Even flowers like lilies, irises and tulips can’t escape their mouths. A mole’s favorite food are grubs, worms, and insects, but they also eat plant materials. However, gophers like it better if the plant material is tender. Gophers, moles, voles, chipmunks, and woodchucks are very intelligent animals. They have been known to avoid and overcome traps, shun baits and poisons.

It’s plain to see that you have a gopher or mole in your backyard by how your garden looks like – full of mounds and tunnels and a lot of damage. I am a lover of life. I cannot kill. The spiders at home, I don’t stomp on them, I put them out, and the snakes when I see one in the yard, I just remove them there and transfer near the lake (okay, you might think I’m CRAZY!). Thus, I suggest you go now and purchase an ultrasonic device at the store. It’s much safer and all life is protected.

Are you thinking about buying a sonic chaser? If that’s the case, then I recommend you go to Safe Home Products. There you can find almost any sonic chaser available. Get Rid of those moles once and for all.
