Tips on moles and garden mole removal
Moles are insectivores and not rodents as is commonly believed. They prefer to eat grubs and other small insects but their reason for existence is the humble earthworm. Earthworms are without doubt their favourite food source.
They are originally wetland/woodland creatures that have been forced into human territory by the eradication of their natural habitat. If you ever wondered why you have a problem with moles, it might be because you water your garden so well, especially the lawn. Yet beneath the grass you have so meticulously kept, you have also provided moist earth conditions for the creatures to tunnel through. Of course, the humble earthworm prefers soggy soil too.
One animal may weigh 8 ounces but will make up for its comparatively small size by tunnelling up to 18 feet per hour. This is why they are extremely difficult to eradicate if the problem has not been detected at the earliest stage. The tunnel system they can create will be extensive, making them tricky to catch.

How do I know if I need garden mole removal services?
You can usually tell if you have an infestation by the damage they cause to your lawn or to your plants. People incorrectly believe moles actually eat the roots of plants but this is not the case.
It is the space created in their extensive tunnels that mean your plants do not root sufficiently that causes the damage. They do not possess lower incisors so they are not equipped to gnaw at roots.
