What Are Moles?
Moles are insectivores and live almost their entire lives in the soil underground. They have stocky bodies covered in dark brown, velvety fur. To help them dig through the earth, they also have big front feet and large rounded claws. Their tails are very short and hairless, and they have a pointed snout. They have small eyes, but poor vision; and ears, but no external openings.
Mole Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Are moles dangerous?
Moles are more damaging than dangerous. They rarely come into contact with people and pose no danger. They do, however, pose a significant risk to properties. Their underground tunnels leave raised trails of dirt above the ground that are unsightly and make mowing a difficult task. Moles move through the soil to hunt their favorite foods—earthworms and grubs. Their tunnels and feeding habits damage the roots of grass, bulbs, and plants and may even cause plant death.
Why do I have a mole problem?
Moles can become a problem in any yard, but those located next to fields, parks, golf courses, or wooded areas are particularly prone to mole infestations. If moles have decided to stay and make themselves at home on your property, it is because it is offering them plenty of food sources. Unfortunately, healthy lawns with loose, moist soil are most attractive to moles.
Where will I find moles?
In our yards, moles dig through the soil in lawns, flower beds, and gardens. Moles are active year-round and live underground. They create tunnels that are both shallow and deep. Their shallow tunnels are where they hunt for food, and their deeper tunnels are where they live.
