What are Moles?

Moles are small mammals with pointed muzzles, tiny eyes, and a cylindrical body that resembles an Idaho potato.

Moles are creatures that have spent their entire lives underground in the dirt, with fur so velvety and dark brown you might think it was a shadow.

One of the most distinguishing characteristics is their claws that help them dig through the earth.

They have a short, hairless tail and snout with pointed ears. They are nearly blind but can feel very well through their sensitive paws.

They are usually about 7 inches in length and weigh around 4 ounces. They eat worms, insects, slugs, spiders—basically anything they find in the soil.

Moles Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Are Moles dangerous?

They are not dangerous, but they can cause extensive damage to your lawn. It is rare for moles to come in contact with humans and they pose no risk.

However, they cause a risk to property and can even harm the home's foundation. They create mounds of dirt in their paths that make lawn care difficult.

They dig through the soil to hunt their favorite food: earthworms and grubs. They create holes by tunneling through the ground which can cause significant damage to lawns, flower beds, rocks, or vegetation.

Why do I have a Mole problem?

Moles are a common sight in any yard, but those located near fields and wooded areas can be especially prone to infestations.

They are small animals that rely on plants, worms, and bugs for food. They tend to stay wherever the soil is rich in these types of things.

Unfortunately, they find loose, moist soil in healthy lawns to be most attractive.

Where will I find Moles?

Moles are a major pest in our yards. They dig through the soil, causing damage and destruction to your lawns, flower beds, or gardens.

Moles are crepuscular animals but are active year-round. This means they spend the majority of their time in and around tunnels underground.

These creatures are known for creating tunnels that run both deep and shallow. Their shallower caves serve as a hunting ground, while their deeper passages provide shelter from the elements above-ground.
