Where to Find Moles

Moles are a common problem in yards and gardens in the area and can be tricky to remove unless you know how to get rid of moles using proper mole control techniques.

How to Identify a Mole Problem

When you have a mole problem, you will notice mounds of disturbed soil in your garden or lawn from the moles burrowing. Moles burrow because they are looking for food and have sensitive eyes so they remain underground or protected by foliage when possible. A mole is four to nine inches long, has pink feet and a tail, long and grey or brown fur and tiny eyes. You may not see the mole responsible for the mess, but you will notice mounds of earth and tunnels. After you identify the problem, it’s important to determine how to get rid of the mole and call an Critter Control mole control expert.

What Damage and Hazards are Caused from Moles

The damage from moles burrowing and digging generally outweighs immediate hazards, such as getting bit or diseases they may carry. They often uproot grass, create mounds, ridges and tunnels in yards, flowerbeds and gardens. Other rodents will use the tunnels and often eat the exposed roots of plants in a garden or flowerbed.
