All About Moles

Moles live underground and surface only occasionally. Their cylindrical bodies and powerful front claws are ideal for digging and so they almost “swim” through dirt. Theycreate a complex network of interconnected chambers by burrowing both deep and close to the surface, where they often leave visible ridges. Mole hills or mole volcanoes are places where the mole has pushed up earth above the surface. Despite what most people will tell you, stamping down the mole hills does not necessarily deter the moles from living in your lawn as they continually make new ones as they go anyway. They have very poor sight and feed mainly on worms and insect larvae that they find by the sense of touch and smell. They do not eat roots or tulip bulbs.
