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. The mole activity can last all year round, depending on the local environment and they do not hibernate.


Moles are mammals that live most of their lives underground digging a tunnel system for feeding and the by – product of which, will be molehills, consisting of the removed soil and stones.

Moles are carnivorous and feed on a variety of insects, worms and other invertebrates that fall into the mole tunnel systems. They do not feed on plant material, but mole digging can seriously undermine and damage the root systems of plants and could cause damage to any underground drainage system.

There are a couple of ways to control mole activity, but the safest and most effective way is by professional trapping. Mole traps need to be carefully placed and monitored to ensure that humane practices are carried out.
