Are moles known to enter homes or yards?
Given their preferred habitats and activities, moles are rarely seen inside buildings. The adept diggers prefer loose soils, like sand, and avoid clay and stony soils, which impede their ability to dig efficiently. They particularly enjoy making homes in human landscaping as the tailored and damp ground is ideal for digging. Expanses of property used for growing crops and golf courses are also favored sites for mole burrowing.
Do moles harm people or property?
Since they tunnel so close to ground surfaces, moles often leave behind unsightly mounds of upturned dirt and kill grass and other plants when they burrow into the ground. As infestations of moles grow, they are capable of more destruction and can totally ruin otherwise aesthetically pleasing fields, as well as destroy crop yields for farmers. Additionally, the mammals inhabit sports fields, rendering them unusable. While they don't directly attack humans, their holes make ground very uneven, are easy to trip upon and even cause injury.
Control and Safety
Employing mole control methods can be tedious and expensive. Unless affected property owners have the time to monitor traps and plant boundaries to exclude the small mammals from the area, specialized services should be enlisted to eliminate mole infestations. Flooding mole hills is sometimes effective during the spring. However, adult moles are usually able to flee and later re-inhabit the area. This is why it is important to contact professionals who can manage the moles, and take measures to ensure they don't return.
