MOLE FAQ

GENERAL MOLE INFO

Moles are insectivores. They are not rodents. They will consume grubs and insects, but get the vast majority of their dietary needs from earthworms.

Moles have an incredibly high metabolism. This means they have an insatiable appetite and are always on the lookout for food. In fact, they consume 80%-100% of their body weight every day.

HOW MUCH DAMAGE CAN MOLES DO?

Moles use/create tunnel systems as the means to locate food. They can move rapidly through existing tunnel systems, but can also create up to 100 feet of new tunnels in a day… causing extensive lawn and landscape damage.

DO MOLES HIBERNATE?
Moles do not hibernate and are active year-round.
DO MOLES LIVE IN FAMILIES?

Moles are anti-social and typically do not coexist within the same tunnel system. The one exception is for reproduction. Moles typically breed in late winter/early spring. After the young are weaned – 7-12 weeks after breeding - you are likely to see the highest level of activity.

Moles will reoccupy a vacant tunnel system if food is abundant.

HOW LONG DO MOLES LIVE?
Moles live their lives underground, rarely coming to the surface. Expected life span for a mole is approximately 2-3 years.
