Garden Pests That May Require Professional Help

by Amelia Sutton

You have these great plans to create your own food garden, and your property has just enough space to do it. Unfortunately, every time you try to till the ground and get some plants started, you have issues with pests stepping in and ruining what seems to be a good start. Most people think of pest control agencies to help with things like cockroaches and bedbugs inside the house, but these professionals can help you with outdoor pests just the same. Take a look at some of the garden pests you may have to eradicate with the help of a local pest control service. 


Moles are commonly mistaken for mice, but they are quite a bit different than a typical rodent. Moles are ground dwellers, they can't see, and a vegetable garden is perhaps one of their favorite places to be. These little burrowing mammals look for soil that is rich with organic matter, such as decaying plant matter, because they munch on the pests that can result from the breakdown of the organic stuff. The problem with moles in the garden is all the burrowing they do while looking for insects; they can burrow straight through every root system and practically destroy an otherwise healthy vegetable garden in the process. Mole traps are a common eradication method, but there are a lot of other professional methods a well. 


Cute, sneaky, and incredibly nimble, raccoons are the nighttime roamers that just love to make their way into inhabited areas and find things to eat, and they really love a good garden. From your tomatoes to your watermelons, raccoons will destroy anything that they deem as good-looking food, and these creatures can be hard to get rid of. Pest control agencies that specialize in wildlife removal can help you get these critters out of your garden.


Cutworms have a straightforward name because of the annoying way they can completely ruin your plants. These worms literally cut seedlings and sprouts down almost right at the ground in the process of eating them, which can make it impossible to keep a healthy garden in the spring. Cutworms eventually turn into various moths and go on about their lives, but at the time they are larvae, they can be especially hard to eradicate. A local pest control company can help you get rid of these worms in ways that will not leave toxins in the ground that harm your plants.
