Mole and Gopher Services in Broken Arrow, Jenks & Bixby, Oklahoma.
You know moles and gophers are destructive little pests. They thrive where food sources are plentiful. Ever notice as you’re driving down the road all the mounds of dirt in clusters from these critters? Moles and gophers are active year round so you will see these mounds regardless of the time of year. They can be destructive to a yard since gophers eat roots and the moles leave tunnels in the soil.

So, why do you have moles or gophers? Well, moles chase after things like earth worms and grubs. They can sense, detect these creatures in soil so moles will follow them around depleting them and moving. This is why a neighborhood that has them will see yard after yard infested with these pests. Once they deplete the food in a yard they just move next door and then back and forth.
Gophers love roots so if you plant a garden, spend time working in the yard planting flowers, plants and so forth then gophers could be a problem. Gophers differ from moles in many ways. They are after different foods, moles are gophers look nothing alike and gophers tunnel deep into soil where moles prefer the area closer to the surface where their food is easily found and the soil easier to tunnel through. Gophers can dig deep in the soil and may have living quarters a few feet down.
So what do we do about these pests? First thing I always look at is the soil types that we are finding these animals in. If you live in the souther parts of Broken Arrow, Jenks or Bixby then it’s likely you may have sandy loam soil. This soil is found in area’s closer to the Arkansas River. These animals thrive in sandy loam soil types. If you start going north the soil changes to more of a mix and then to other soil types which can be harder to tunnel through for these animals. They don’t prefer clay nearly as much as sandy loam. I would say this is likely the reason Jenks, Bixby and Broken Arrow tend to have more issues with moles then I see in the north eastern cities.
We can of course trap them, which helps but may not be a total solution since they migrate and move around. Once you do this you may just be inviting you’re neighbor’s moles over to take control of the areas you just cleared. They can be poisoned but once again you may end up just seeing more move in because of the competition being removed. They can be smoked out with products that kill them but once again it may not be a total solution. They can be driven out with products that make what they eat taste horrible but yet this may not be a total solution. The truth is that nothing is a total solution for these animals because they are pests that migrate. Most people will tend to have moles or gophers because of where they live. It’s kind of like having ants every spring… It just happens.
EnviroTech can help by looking at your unique situation and determining what may work best for the area, place, soil type you may have. Sometimes the best thing is a combination of methods. Sometimes depending on what’s around you only one method is needed. I would recommend scheduling an appointment to find out what may be the best way to help your mole/gopher problem.

By Billy Howard – EnviroTech Exterminating
Nobody wants a yard full of Moles, Gophers or Voles. These mammals can destroy a yard while taking the good bugs from the soil. Moles detect movement in the soil by beneficial insects and worms. These are the Moles primary food source. The problem with this is the soil is aerated by worms and grubs. If the beneficials are reduced or removed from a yard than the yard dies!!!!
Gophers eat away at the roots of plants and grasses. These pests can be devastating for a garden or farm. Those new plants you worked so hard planting will likely not live if you have a gopher problem.
Another pest that destroys yard are Voles. These pests are vegetarian and much like gophers eat away at roots. They tunnel and destroy vegetation along the way.
So, why are these pests so hard to deal with? One thing these pests all have in common is very high metabolisms. They also have very fast reproductive rates. The mole has one of the fastest metabolisms of any mammal and this is why most poisons are not effective when it comes to mole control. So, what can be done about moles?
EnviroTech Exterminating offers Mole and Gopher Control Services. We apply repellants that drive these pests from the yard. If the food tastes bad, they move on to find better hunting grounds. How is this treatment performed? The EPA Exempt product is applied directly to the yard and around the area of infestation. The area then will need watered for at least twenty minutes, then the process is repeated 14 day’s later. We then recommend regular applications on a thirty day interval.
Where are these services available? EnviroTech services the metro Tulsa area including Broken Arrow, Jenks, Bixby and Owasso. If you live in the Tulsa metro area, your in the service area.
Who much does this service cost? The cost of this service is based on yard size. The program has an initial treatment fee with follow-up services provided at a drastically reduced rate once the problem is controlled. All pricing is based on yard size.
Why is this a better method of dealing with Moles and Gophers than trapping or poisoning these animals? The problem with poison is these animals can come above ground when they are dying. If a dog or cat finds a poisoned mole or vole they may eat the animal, put the animal in their mouths and possibly ingest poisons. Trapping the animals is a great idea and works but trapping alone may costs hundreds of dollars only to see the moles, voles and/or gophers your neighbors have move into the tunnels the trapped ones built. These animals are opportunistic and will take over a tunnel that is good feeding grounds.
1) It changes the living environment of these pests to make the foods they feed on taste bad.
2) There are no bad smells during or after application.
3) All products DO NOT HARM ANIMALS and may be safely used near people and pets.
