Ridding your home or property of burrowing moles.

Major Health & Safety Concerns

Moles don’t pose any significant health risks to humans; however, like groundhogs (woodchucks), their burrowing can wreak havoc to both domestic and commercial properties – as well as create safety hazards.

What’s more, they don’t hibernate, so they’re active year-long. Their constant activity means they can create a series of long-running shallow and deep underground tunnels. These tunnels are called “runways” which are comprised of intricate systems, meaning the potential damage could be extensive and costly.

Whether a singular mole or many, their potential to compromise building foundations, damage electrical cables, fences, gardens, vegetable patches and other outbuildings is imminent.

The Problem Signs.

Moles live in solitude and only come together to mate. Combine their isolation with the fact that they live underground, means they’re hard to spot and identify. So it’s important you know how to detect the signs of their presence:

  • Mole hills – These are ‘volcano’ shaped, loose mounds of soil created from their digging the entrances to their tunnels.
  • Shallow Tunnels – These runways can be easily identified above ground as they’re often long tracks of raised earth (ridges) along the ground.
  • Dead/Dying Flowers and Plants – Moles don’t consume flowers and plants, but do eat the earthworms and bugs that thrive in the soil. Moles will dig and scrape at plant roots in search of their food; this pursuit often causes the plant to die from damage or lack of nutrients since the soil has been pulled away from it.

Removing Moles.

Although they’re very small, moles have efficiently sharp claws for digging and can move surprisingly very fast. Whenever dealing with any type of wildlife, it’s vital you take the right steps to safely remove it:

  1. Identify the animal.
    Only the size of a chipmunk, moles have soft brown to black fur and an elongated turned-up nose. Their curved paws have an extra thumb for efficient digging; their eyes and ears are very small – often covered by hair and not easily visible.
  2. Identify their hills and runways.
    There are several other burrowing animals in America, so to ensure you correctly identify the mole’s presence, look for their characteristic mole hill and evidence of their shallow runways above the ground (see descriptions above in ‘The Problem Signs’ section).
  3. Call us.
    Depending on the size of your property, you may have one mole or several moles within larger areas. That means you may have a bigger problem than you realize. Don’t chance the safe and humane removal of moles to anyone but the professionals; speak with one of our informative wildlife control technicians so they can help.
