Mole Identification & Prevention

What are moles?

Moles are unique animals that live their lives mainly under the ground. These subterranean critters are insectivores meaning their diet is made up of grubs, earthworms, and insects. In nature, moles are helpful; they aerate the soil, control insect numbers, and act as a food source for many predators. However, they are destructive pests in our yards that must be removed to protect your lawn and gardens. 

Moles are identified by their stout cylindrical bodies, small eyes and ears, and dark velvety fur. Extending from their forelimbs are large paws that they use for digging through the soil. 

The best way to learn about moles and remove these garden pests is to partner with experienced wildlife control experts. Look no further for mole control near me; BigHeart Wildlife Removal is here to help you identify and remove unwanted moles from your Cumming, Georgia, property.

Are moles dangerous?

Moles are best described as problematic and destructive. Listed below are some of the many reasons why you shouldn’t share your property with moles.

  • The tunnels that moles dig under the ground damage the roots of grass and plants.

  • The raised trails of dirt and dirt mounds created by their tunneling habits are unsightly, can cause trips and falls, and can make mowing difficult. 

  • When moles eat large numbers of beneficial insects, it can disrupt the delicate balance of your yard. 

If there is any good news when it comes to moles, it is that they stay outside. Moles are not pests you typically have to worry about entering your home. However, they are outdoor pests whose presence can significantly affect the health and appearance of your yard.

Why do I have a mole problem?

The unfortunate truth is that the healthier your lawn, the more at risk it is to a mole problem. Moles love moist, loose soil that is easy to dig through and provides a varied diet. Lawns that are well cared for provide moles with the perfect place to tunnel and hunt their prey. Controlling and stopping moles from becoming a problem on your property is frustrating. The best way to deter mole activity is to partner with a local wildlife control expert.

Where will I find moles?

Moles are most likely to call wooded areas, fields, parks, yards, and other open grassy areas home. Therefore, properties in more rural areas are most at risk of experiencing problems with these garden pests. 

Moles remain active year-round and will cause more and more damage to your yard no matter the season. They dig both shallow and deeper tunnels. The shallow tunnels are used to hunt for food and cause the raised ridges in lawns that help homeowners to identify a problem with these pests. The deeper tunnels are where moles live and raise their young.

One helpful prevention step is implementing a year-round wildlife control program to reduce insect activity on your property. Moles will likely choose somewhere else to call home if ample food sources are unavailable.
