Moles are actually insectivores, not rodents as is commonly believed. By far their favourite food is the humble earthworm, so moles prefer to inhabit fertile soil areas rich in insects and worms. A beautifully watered lawn creates the perfect moist soil conditions for worms and moles. Unfortunately, this brings moles into conflict with human habitats, and their complex burrow systems can cause great damage to grounds, garden lawns, golf and bowling greens, and flower beds. Their extensive tunnelling weakens plant roots and scatters stones and debris, all of which can be costly for homes and businesses.
The classic sign of the presence of moles are the mounds of soil (mole hills) that they leave behind, although many mole hills may be the result of just a small number of moles.

Below are just a few reasons to get any Mole infestation dealt with quickly…
Moles are originally woodland and wetland creatures. The loss of natural habitation has meant that they have moved into human territory. Their tunnels cause great damage to grounds, garden lawns, golf and bowling greens and flower beds, and can be a costly disruption to your home or business.
Although less obvious, the costly damage moles cause can sometimes lead to even more serious problems, such as stones caught in machinery, or livestock and animals injuring themselves where ground has been undermined by mole activity.
