Mole Control Is An Important Part Of Your Pest Plan
Mole control is an important part of a lawn control pest plan because they can cause a lot of damage in your yard. The mole’s main diet is worms and grubs, so they create tunnels to travel and find food.
During their search for food, they scrape away the dirt from underneath the surface of your yard causing the plants and grass to die. In addition, sleeping and eating in four-hour shifts allows them to cause much damage to your lawn in a short time.
Although these pesky critters prefer to work alone, there is evidence that Eastern moles do not hibernate and are active all year. This means the Eastern mole can continue to damage your yard until the winter frost freezes the ground.
Research shows that some mole tunnels are communal highways and may be used by several moles. Also, other small animals may use the tunnels created by moles, voles, rats, mice or other pests.

The Eastern Mole
Moles are small subterranean mammals of the scientific order, Insectivora, meaning their diet consists mainly of insects. The Eastern Mole is the most commonly found mole species in the state of Virginia. At approximately four to eight inches long, these moles have short, powerful forefeet and broad outward-turned palms.
With an elongated head and snout and small eyes and ears, these short black or brown-grey velvety furred creatures have prominent digging claws. Their claws and normal behaviors can cause severe damage to your lawn. Moles in your lawn can potentially cause situations that may attract other insects and vermin to your home.
Because the Eastern mole does not hibernate, some moles will mate in the late winter months. Regardless, the peak mating season is in the spring, late February and March. Moles gestation period is approximately six weeks. Each year, the females can produce two to five young who leave the nest in search of their own territory. Young moles can reproduce as early as five to six weeks of age. For these reasons, moles are critters that homeowners should be concerned to eradicate and remove from their property.

Mole Facts & Habitat
A mole’s territory depends vastly on the food supply making irrigated and fertilized lawns the perfect home for these critters.
A mole’s territory consists of surface tunnels, main tunnels and nests.
Moles consume about 60% to 100% of their body weight in food daily, allowing them to dig up to 150 feet of mole tunnels in your lawn every day!
Moles remain active day and night year-round in search of food.
Moles do not eat plants but they can destroy them while tunneling, inviting mice and voles in to feed on the roots and bulbs.
