Moles can invade your yard or garden and create a mess by burrowing tunnels and uprooting plants in their search for food. Anderson Wildlife Control can help you rid your property of moles before they become a problem.
Moles have pink tails and feet and long grey or brown fur. They range from four to nine inches in length. Since their tiny eyes are light-sensitive, they spend most of their time underground. You will see the tunnels and mounds of earth they create, but you will most likely not see the moles. They rarely bite people or spread diseases.
Moles belong to the same family as shrews and hedgehogs. You can tell that you have a mole problem if you see raised tunnels and mounds, damaged plants, and uprooted grass in your yard or garden. They prefer to burrow in areas with vegetation, where the soil is looser. It is easier for moles to dig tunnels in shallow areas, so they generally dig in yards and gardens.
Moles can be removed by trapping, which can be a challenge since they dig different types of tunnels that do not always have an entry or exit point. They can only be trapped effectively in their “travel” tunnels. A wildlife control professional can identify those tunnels to trap the moles before they continue to tear up your property. Trapping moles is a humane and environmentally-friendly method of removal.
If you believe moles are digging up your property, don’t wait to take action. At Anderson Wildlife Control, we have the skills and tools to humanely remove and relocate moles and repair the damage they have done to your yard or garden.
