Like most homeowners, you have tried the poison peanuts, grub control, castor oil, sonic mole chasers, etc and found they were ineffective. Trapping is the only solution. Unfortunately we are discontinuing our mole trapping services in areas like Newton, Pleasantville, Boone as the 1-3 stops there take too much time away from servicing our many customers in the central Iowa area. We apologize for this inconvenience for our customers living in these areas. We have appreciated your business in years past and your loyalty.

We have an inspection fee for a couple reasons. One is because we use it to gauge the seriousness of the person that is calling looking to have the bats removed. Each building is different whether commercial, residential, or industrial. Gaps 1/2 or larger must be inspected and sealed to prevent re-entry of bats and entries that are existing need one way bat valves installed and then a return trip must happen to take off those bat valves a few weeks later and those places sealed. During the inspection all these will be taken into account as well as access to those areas like ladder or aerial lift needed and the steepness of the roof all play a factor in the total cost.
