What Is A Mole?
A mole is a small burrowing rodent that has a rounded body about 6 inches long and covered in soft black or gray fur. Moles have pointed muzzles and lack external ears. They also are equipped with extremely sensitive hearing and a highly developed sense of touch at the ends of their noses and tails.
Why Do I Have Them?
Well tended lawns are prime breeding and feeding areas for lawn insect pests which make up a mole’s diet. Also new development of urban and suburban property are forcing moles out of their natural habitat and into backyards.
Are They Dangerous?
Moles are not dangerous to people and pets, however they are considered nuisance pests because of the damage they are capable of doing to lawns and turf grasses as they forage for food and build unsightly tunnels.
