A moles most distinguishing feature is their pointed noses which tells them apart from meadow voles, gophers, and shrews. Their noses extend well in front of their mouths. They have small eyes with ears concealed by fur. A mole has feet shaped like a spade and are wider than they are long.
Signs of moles
Discharged mounded soil and heaved runways are indicators of the mole’s presence.
Habitat: Mole activity occurs both during the day and night. They can be seen during damp days or the day after a rain during the spring and summer months as they push up the their tunnels or mounds. If the lawn freezes in the winter or there is a very dry summer, the moles use deep burrows.
1) They can pose problems as their molehills become mountains in yards, golf courses and other landscaped areas. As they search for food they kill grass and expensive landscaping plants and shrubs and make the ground uneven and unsightly.
2) Your favorite plants and trees can be ruined by a mole’s activity. Active moles, will be looking for worms and grubs to eat, but in the process they turn grass brown, create low and weak spots in your yards and create the famous molehills of disturbed dirt. Their tunnels are more like labyrinths and soon become homes for mice
