Mole Control, Trapping and Extermination

Moles are phenomenal diggers and rely heavily on their fore paws to dig the tunnels they are popularly known for. The average mole tunnels about 1 foot per minute, as they dig tunnels they push dirt to the surface resulting in mole mounds. Folks are typically able to identify a mole problem through the manifestation of mole mounds throughout their landscaping. Moles spend most of their time underground and primarily feed on insects. Mole control is important throughout the year, unfortunately, moles are active throughout the year. They do not hibernate.

Identification: Moles are small, short-furred mammals with cylindrical bodies; slender, pointed snouts; and short, bare tails. Their limbs are short and spade-like.
Feed on: worms, insects, and other invertebrates.
Habits: Moles live underground in a network of interconnecting tunnels, thus their eyes are poorly developed.
The Problem: Moles will eat roots, bulbs, and other plant material, but the greatest problem is caused by their burrowing, which dislodges plants and dries out their roots, creates unsightly mounds and ridges in lawns, makes lawn maintenance difficult, and destroys valuable plants.
