What Are Moles and Why Are They a Pest?
Moles are a type of rodent that lives almost entirely underground. They have a pointed snout, stout claws, and their tail is bare. Including their tail they can grow to be as big as 7 inches. We have two mole species here in Florida:
- Eastern Mole
- Star Nosed Mole
The star nose moles can look somewhat nightmarish, as their nose looks like it has many small arms coming from its nostril, while the Eastern Mole looks almost like an obese rat.
Mole hills can also look like gopher holes, so determining which hole is which is part of our inspection and important for treatment. Moles eat ground insects, like worms, which makes them less harmful to gardens than gophers which eat vegetation and may destroy a garden for food.
Moles themselves are harmless to humans. But the damage they do to a yard or garden can be extensive. Not only are these holes unsightly, but the worse they become the more they can turn into sinkholes below ground that require more expensive landscaping to repair. Moles also may not damage gardens on purpose, but in their quest for insects they can uproot flowers, strawberries, and other loose plants.
