How to Get Rid of a Mole in Your House
Though it is rare, people who spy an odd, rodent-like animal indoors may be dealing with a mole in the house. These pests look similar to mice, but they have important differences. Most mole species share certain traits, including:
- Small, black eyes, often hidden under fur
- No visible ears
- Broad, pronounced forefeet
- Short, stubby tails or no tail at all
Finding Moles in Homes
It is unusual to find a mole in the house, but it does happen. Moles create complex tunnels underground, preferring the loose dirt of well-tended yards and gardens. While digging, the pests may get into homes through damaged basement windows or foundation cracks near the soil line.
Homeowners can keep moles out of the house by making repairs to the foundation or siding. However, exclusion may leave baby moles in a house, although this is extremely rare.
Since genuine instances of moles in houses are infrequent, those who believe they have this problem should contact wildlife experts. What appears to be a baby mole in the house may actually be a pest that requires a different removal method, such as a mouse or shrew. Call Critter Control to identify and control moles indoors.
