General Facts

Why do I have moles?

Moles are small burrowing animals that spend most of their time underground. They like loose, moist soil that makes burrowing easy and attracts plenty of insects. The creatures thrive in woodlands, meadows, forests, pastures, and fields, but are also known to invade urban settings like parks, cemeteries, and yards. Although moles will eat plant tubers and seeds, they prefer grubs, worms, slugs, and other insects. Moles will seek out homes with an overpopulation of grubs in the yard.

How worried should I be about moles?

Moles cause damage by tunnelling along hedges, sidewalks, and walls as well as under lawns, flower beds, and shallow foundations. As they burrow, the pests expose plants’ delicate roots, creating dead patches in lawns and gardens. Other pests like field mice, voles, and snakes often move into moles’ old burrows, causing added problems. To get a grip on a mole infestation – and any others that accompany it – you need an integrated approach from a professional pest control company.
