If someone asks you if you have ever seen a mole, the answer would most likely be no! If asked the same question about molehills, then the answer would probably be a resounding yes! Many gardeners fear finding these tell-tale signs of mole activity as it can only mean that damage and distress will follow. Molehills are caused by a mole, or moles, digging feeding tunnels to catch food. The digging of these tunnels can affect many areas including gardens, lawns, flower beds, vegetable plots and surrounding areas damaging roots and plants in the process.

Moles feel this way too, although with a different way of enjoying the food that our gardens produce! It is the insects, worms and other foods that are in our gardens that the moles are searching for with their endless tunnelling. Freshly dug ground and mown grass stimulate worms and insect activity providing new larders for the moles to harvest. This is done through a network of mole tunnels that the food drops into and is quickly eaten. Plants are not a target or food source, but...
