Garden Moles

Moles

Moles are insectivores and not rodents as is commonly believed. They prefer to eat grubs and other small insects but their reason for existence is the humble earthworm. Earthworms are without doubt their favourite food source. They are originally wetland/woodland creatures that have been forced into human territory by the eradication of their natural habitat.

How do I know if I need garden mole removal services?

You can usually tell if you have an infestation by the damage they cause to your lawn or to your plants. People incorrectly believe moles actually eat the roots of plants but this is not the case.

It is the space created in their extensive tunnels that mean your plants do not root sufficiently that causes the damage. They do not possess lower incisors so they are not equipped to gnaw at roots.
