What Attracts Moles to Your Yard
Moles invade yards in search of an adequate food supply. These mammals
burrow into the ground in a constant search for earthworms, grubs, and
lawn insects to eat. They are known to eat nearly their entire body weight
in insects on a daily basis, which makes finding a yard with plenty of
insects very important to them. If your yard doesn’t have these
bugs and insects at the ready, moles won’t be attracted to it.
Are Moles Dangerous?
Moles are not aggressive in nature and will do anything to avoid coming
into contact with humans. These mammals are nearly blind but use their
other senses to detect when people are nearby so that they can avoid them.
However, it is not recommended that you try to physically remove moles
from your yard because it is possible that they will bite in self-defense.
While moles are not any real threat to humans, they are certainly a threat
to gardens and lawns. They are known to cause extensive damage to yards
and landscapes in a very short amount of time. That makes early treatment
the key to preventing massive amounts of damage to your property.
Identifying Mole Damage
Most of the property damage created by moles is in the yard rather than
the structure of a home or business. Moles construct complex underground
tunnels in yards that allow them to search for worms and set up areas
Constructing these tunnels results in:
- Damaged grass
- Destroyed flower beds
- Damaged flower and tree root systems
- Small volcano-shaped mounds of dirt
- Surface tunnels or ridges throughout a yard
