The mole is among the most common mammals in the UK, but because it spends most of its life under the ground, it is rarely seen. For most people, it is the familiar sight of molehills of soil in fields and even on lawns which is their only experience of these secretive animals.

A mole’s diet mainly consists of earthworms, but they also feed on beetles and other insects, even baby mice and occasionally shrews if they come upon them while on the surface.

Large molehills mark the position of a nest; a line of small molehills marks the direction of a deep tunnel; a continuous line of earth marks a very shallow tunnel.

Moles are considered as pests where they damage lawns and fields. Have a mole problem? Click below to contact us or call 01553 770617.
