Moles are the most common lawn pests in the Memphis area, and they are attracted to your lawn by smaller pests called grub worms. Grub worms live in the soil beneath your lawn and, if they are not eaten by moles, they chew on your grass roots.
If you had moles feeding on grub worms last year, chances are they will return. Grubs don’t disappear on their own. They should be treated before damage begins to appear, or as soon as they are discovered.
