Do moles harm people or property?
Primarily carnivores that feast on earthworms, grubs, and other dangerous insect invaders, moles are generally beneficial, though their tunneling activities may become problematic. Their tunnels cause damage to lawns, gardens, golf courses, and pastures. Though more an irritation than fiscally taxing, mole activity can turn grasses unsightly shades of brown and even prevent planted vegetation from becoming securely rooted into place. Moles may bite when handled by humans.
