Moles dig a network of tunnels through the soil in search of insects, worms and other small invertebrates and in doing so can leave destruction in their wake! A well-manicured lawn can be devastated by moles, as can newly planted seedlings and other small plants which can be pushed up and have their roots damaged. The runs they dig below the surface damage the ground and form holes which can be dangerous on playing fields and in paddocks. Autumn, winter and early spring are when moles really become active.
Signs of mole infestation
Unmistakable! Mole hills – mounds of freshly turned up soil – usually in the middle of your immaculate lawn!
