What are moles?
Moles are small mammals that have adapted to living and burrowing underground. They have cylindrical-shaped bodies complete with velvety dark brown or black fur and powerful front limbs with large paws suitable for digging. Many people believe that moles are completely blind, but these critters do have inconspicuous eyes and ears, though their eyesight is poor.
Controlling nuisance moles is important for property owners that want to ensure these destructive pests stay away from their outdoor areas. Mike's Pest, Termite and Wildlife Control helps with this.
Are moles dangerous?
Though moles aren't known to bite or attack humans, they are still pest invaders to be wary of. Moles often carry fleas and ticks in their fur, spreading them around your property as they invade, encouraging infestations of these dangerous parasitic pests. If a mole does bite, it may be painful and result in swelling.
Moles are also incredibly destructive to outdoor areas. Their underground tunneling activities often disturb the roots of plants. As they tunnel deep, they weaken soil, make it easier for other pests to invade, and leave unsightly mounds on your property.
DIY mole control products rarely deter these pests, which is why professional mole control is necessary.
Why do I have a mole problem?
Like many other pests, moles invade properties in pursuit of food, water, and shelter. If your property has a high population of soil pests, such as grubs and earthworms, you may start to notice a mole infestation. Other factors that attract moles include moist soil conditions and overwatering, which attract worms, a mole's favorite food source.
Where will I find moles?
Moles are almost always found underground in their tunnels, though they may appear closer to surface level if they are searching for a mate. Signs that moles have moved onto your property include loose soil, mole mounds scattered throughout outdoor areas, dry or dead grass, and raised ridges on the lawn.
