MOUNTAIN OF MOLES
Moles love moist earth to tunnel through, so if you water your garden excessively, you may inadvertently be creating the perfect environment for them to thrive in. These mammals are fast prolific diggers, being able to achieve a rate of 12 to 15 feet per hour, building extensive networks of tunnels. It may seem that many moles are occupying an area, but usually it’s the result of just one moles activity. Their main diet consists of live earthworms, beetles, ants, grubs and other insect larvae.
DEALING WITH MOLES
It is imperative that a mole problem is identified as early as possible. If they are given time to create an extensive network of tunnels around your property and neighbouring properties they will be very difficult to locate and eradicate. Our usual process is to set up traps and return daily to check them. As the weather cools, moles will retreat into their deeper tunnels up to five feet beneath the surface.
HOW TO IDENTIFY
Moles have a small pointed snout, nearly invisible eyes and ears and large paws used for digging. For the most part they live in seclusion in underground burrows, rarely coming to the surface. However, mounds in your garden are sure signs of a Mole being present.
