Moles are insectivores (not rodents, as may be commonly thought) that have adapted to living underground. This is where they find their prey, which includes earthworms and other small invertebrates that can be found underground in soil. Moles can tolerate higher than normal levels of carbon dioxide and as a result, can survive in environments with lower than normal oxygen counts, including underground burrows.

Biology and Behavior

up close look at a mole and its claws

  • Adult moles have a body length between 5 and 7 inches long and weigh between 2.5 and 4.5 ounces.

  • Moles have velvety gray or brown fur and very tiny eyes and ears. 

  • Moles normally have 1 litter per year and their gestation period is 28 to 42 years. 

  • Moles are notorious for damaging sod on golf courses, parks and residential lawns with their digging and tunneling. 

  • Moles will also destroy ornamental planting beds with their digging behaviors. 

  • Moles cause damage by tearing up the roots of grasses and plants.

Mole Prevention Tips

  • Install rolls of sheet metal or hardware cloth fencing around seed beds, burying it at least a foot into the ground. 

  • Packing soil around gardens or ornamental beds and reducing moisture in soil can help reduce mole activity.
