Moles (Talpa Europaea) Print E-mail
The common mole is 15cm long. They are grey in colour and have strong front feet that are used for digging and moving earth. They feed on earth worms, slugs and insect larvae. They average mole as one litter per year with 2-4 young.
The presence of ridges or small mounds of soil on the surface of lawns or gardens indicate moles are active in the area. Moles establish extensive tunnel systems to find food. They prefer moist soils.
The presence of moles will cause damage to lawns and plants. The tunnels can cause injury to farm animals or humans on sports fields.
