The mole species, although similar to animals within the rodent family, are not rodents. They are plenty in Greensboro and Winston-Salem and can range anywhere from 5 to 8 inches in length, and have brown or gray fur with pink feet, noses and tails. People usually cannot see moles eyes, as they are light-sensitive and covered with fur. They also have no external ears. Moles have broad front feet with special claws for digging tunnels, and fleshy noses used specifically for their sense of touch.
Moles can be found living in Eurasia and North America. They build tunnels beneath the ground with extensive tunnel networks. These tunnels are close to the ground-level surface and are typically places for feeding, identifiable by the resulting areas raised up in the ground. One of the most common complaints associated with moles is their tunneling habit of how they enter and cause damage to yards and homes.
Mole Control, Safety, Removal, and Damage
Critter Control technicians are Certified Wildlife Specialists, offering you the best knowledge and tools to help resolve your mole problem. Moles have the ability to dig one foot of shallow tunnel per the minute. These tunnels are between 6 and 24 inches deep below the surface, however, moles can dig deeper tunnels at a rate of 12 to 15 feet per hour. They are usually made for shelter during severe weather conditions.
