As a mole, life can be hard and just like humans, if there is an easier way to do things, then this is the way forward! A mole will spend a lot of time feeding from the many mole runs that it constructs in a certain area, but sometimes a new feeding area will be established due to one or more factors In West Moors a mole has been happily feeding via its own tunnel network for a while, until disturbed by possible human or animal interference, the time has come to move areas and seek out new food sources. Tunnelling underground, avoiding rocks and larger stones, it comes across tree roots and...

With the better weather and lack of rain, more time can be spent in our gardens admiring plants and wildlife. The same can be said for moles!

Basic garden maintenance can encourage moles into our gardens, freshly dug soil, mown grass and newly laid turf can all stimulate worm and insect activity, which in turn can provide fresh feeding areas for moles in certain areas. Watering of a garden during dry spells is a definite attraction. Although plants are not on the menu for moles, their constant...

The mole population across the UK certainly seems to have increased at a vast rate this year! It may be because of wet and warmer winters and generally more rain producing better conditions for worms, the prime food for moles. Moles are built to dig. Their body shape and very powerful front claws are ideal for shifting large amounts of soil in a short space of time. A technique similar to swimming is used to construct feeding tunnels, which in turn can create ridges or molehills. These can seriously affect a lawn, garden, paddock, flower bed or vegetable patch, to name but a few. The tunnels...

If needed, a mole can excavate around eighteen to twenty metres of tunnels a day, depending on the soil! The word “mole” could be derived from the word “moldwarp” which literally means earth thrower! A mole does have eyes, but they are very small and protected by fur and instead...
