Mole

What are moles?

Moles are small insectivores that live almost exclusively underneath the ground.  They live their life traveling through intricate tunnel systems that they create just under the ground’s surface and much deeper in the ground.  In the more shallow tunnels they look for and feed on worms, insects, and plant roots and bulbs.  Moles prefer to live a solitary life in their own tunnel system except during breeding season.

What do they look like?

Adult moles have a tube-shaped body that is covered in dark, short, dense, velvet-like fur.  Their eyes and ears are very small and under-developed; their nose is narrow and pointed.  Moles have short limbs that are very powerful; their front feet are enlarged and are used for digging through the dirt.

Do moles bite?

Like any mammal, moles have the potential to bite; but they rarely, if ever, bite people.  They seldom come up to the surface of the ground and therefore rarely come into contact with people; moles are not considered to be a physical threat to humans.

Are moles dangerous?

Moles are not dangerous to people. They are, however, dangerous to the lawn and landscapes that they are invading.  They can cause significant, costly damage to the root system of grasses and ornamental plants as they create their tunnels and forage for food.

What are the signs of a mole infestation?
