Moles are small mammals adapted to an underground lifestyle. They have cylinder shaped bodies, velvety fur, tiny and hard to detect eyes and ears. Their hindlimbs are quite small relative to their front limbs that have large paws which are adapted for digging. Did you know they can dig at approximately 18 feet per hour? They usually feed on assorted insect pests, including earthworms, grubs and other tiny creatures that live in the soil. When you see a mound of dirt on your lawn from a Mole, it is because he is on the hunt for survival! Mole tunnels are usually 10 inches underground, unless they are just surface scanning looking for a mate. Then they would be nearer to the top of the lawn. Actually moles could be called the super heroes of digging! Their deep tunnels can be anywhere from two inches to five feet underground. However, it should be noted that the quantity of mounds in your yard does not necessarily correspond to the number of moles in your yard.

Since the tunneling of moles will destroy the roots of your grass, the ridges will then brown quickly. The sooner that you can stop the tunneling of the moles, the less damage that they can cause.

MOLE TIP #1 – How do I know if I have an active mound in my yard?

You can locate an active mound by pushing down on the raised areas of soil. Then, the next day, note which ridges have been raised up again.

You may be wondering, do moles bite?

Moles can bite, however, since they generally do not carry rabies,  a mole bite isn’t normally any reason to be concerned. If you have been bitten by a mole, it is important to clean it out and disinfect the area immediately so that the area does not become infected. If you should happen to have redness and swelling, this should not cause alarm as that would be normal.
