Mole & Vole Control in McLean, VA
Moles and voles are small mammals that are capable of ruining your landscaping, and undoing all your hard yard work. They can tear up tree roots, disrupt flowerbeds, and damage your turf’s root system, causing it to thin and brown. If you want to protect your yard, trust our expert mole and vole control here in McLean. We use family-friendly products that help preserve your lawn — not damage it further.
The Best Mole Control in McLean
Our mole control combines three effective treatment techniques to get rid of moles in your yard. After performing a thorough inspection, one of our experts will treat your yard with:
- Bait: We use earthworm-shaped bait to trick moles in your yard, effectively getting rid of them.
- Traps: For severe problems, we employ traps in addition to bait.
- Repellents: Our 100% natural repellents help get rid of these pests, while being safe for your kids and pets.
Vole Removal – Guaranteed
To provide you with the most efficient vole control, we customize our treatment based on the severity of your problem and exactly where they are burrowing in your yard. With our lawn care experts on your side, you can expect:
- An initial inspection of your yard to determine the extent of the infestation.
- Installation of bait stations during our initial visit to help get rid of voles faster.
- Three bait treatments within the first three weeks after we start service.

Mosquito Control in McLean, VA
Don’t let these pesky pests steal the spotlight from your outdoor fun this summer. Blades of Green offers highly effective mosquito control to keep them away all season long.
Our talented and highly-trained exterminators know that the most efficient way to obtain long-term protection from mosquitoes is a dual approach. First, we eradicate adult mosquitoes around your property using highly concentrated formulas of specialized sprays. Then we disrupt breeding grounds on your property to interrupt breeding cycles and keep resurgences to a minimum.
Since 1989, Blades of Green has been helping homeowners in McLean with our scientific mosquito control approach. Mosquitoes can reproduce in a bottle cap-sized amount of water, so we begin by identifying and treating areas of standing water around your yard, including:
- kiddie pools
- plugged gutters
- water features
- bird baths
Our team of exterminators returns throughout the season, with seven monthly treatments that take place from April through October. Our technicians have families, too. You can always trust that our team will apply effective formulas with the health and care of your family in mind.
Thick, lush grass is just a click away
