Moles are small mammals with dark brown fur and big front feet shaped like shovels that they use for digging. Their eyes are very small and their ears cannot be seen from the outside. Moles eat earthworms and it is this that attracts them to your lawn.
Moles live and breed throughout Britain, usually breeding between February and June each year. The adult moles are solitary and live almost entirely in underground tunnels which extend over a large area.
There are two depths of tunnels, the deepest will be up to 8 inches below the surface. It is the soil excavated from these tunnels that is pushed out that forms ‘mole hills’.
Often viewed as cute, furry animals, moles can cause major damage to a garden or lawn with the large number of tunnels and holes they make and it is for this reason that they are viewed as a pest. It’s very important that the trapping and removal of moles is done effectively so leave it to the experts and call us as soon as you see the tell tale signs so that we can take care of the problem for you.
