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.
