Our Critter Control mole removal professionals are trained in mole removal, mole trapping, mole control and in how to identify moles and mole problems and prevent future mole damage. Mole Damage Moles cause mole damage when they tunnel beneath the earth and build extensive tunnel networks. Mole tunnels that are close to the earth’s surface are typically feeding tunnels, identifiable by the resulting areas of raised ground. Unfortunately, moles have the ability to dig one foot of shallow tunnel per minute. Tunnels that are deeper below the surface (between 6 and 24 inches deep) are typically shelter tunnels where moles will enter during severe weather conditions. Moles in yard will dig deeper tunnels at a rate of 12 to 15 feet per hour. Mole Problem Prevention and Repair Upon mole removal, a Critter Control mole expert will assess any damage to your home and identify other potential mole entry points. Mole Entry The most common complaint associated with mole problems is their tunneling habit and this is how they enter into yards and homes and cause mole damage. Mole Description Moles are from a different family from that of the rodent. Moles can range anywhere from 5 to 8 inches in length. They can either have brown or gray fur with pink feet, noses and tails. You usually can’t see mole eyes, as their light-sensitive eyes are covered by fur. They have no external ears. Moles have broad front feet with special claws for digging tunnels and fleshy noses that they use for the sense of touch. Mole Habitats Moles can be found in Eurasia and North America. They tunnel beneath the earth and build extensive tunnel networks. Mole tunnels that are close to the earth’s surface are typically feeding tunnels, identifiable by the resulting areas of raised ground. Mole Removal A common mole removal method is to trap the mole. Trapping moles can be tricky because they create different types of tunnels, do not have a point of entry or exit and only the “travel” tunnels will provide effective when trapping. A Critter Control mole removal expert can assist in mole removal by quickly identifying these and accelerating the trapping process. How to Prevent a Mole Problem A mole removal specialist from Critter Control will provide ideas on mole removal and how to reverse a mole problem. Preventing a small mole problem is crucial to preventing a larger mole problem. Gardeners often ponder the best methods of mole removal since these animals cause a great deal of root disturbance to plants and their tunnels can allow other rodents access to your plant roots. Contacting a mole removal expert in the area is the best solution.
