Moles are difficult to remove and can only really be completely removed from your yard with mole traps, a process we have practiced and perfected over the years. In addition, if a mother mole has babies, we will make sure to remove her pups by hand before dealing with the mother mole. We are not a typical Durham mole exterminator company.

Durham mole pest control animal tip: What do moles eat?

Moles are one of the most destructive pests that can invade your yard. The hardest part about getting rid of these pests is that they mainly live underground, making it almost impossible to see them until the damage is done.

Moles are carnivorous and will dig up and tunnel the land looking for insects but with a high preference for earthworms and grubs. Moles have to eat almost their weight in insects every day to keep active and eat over 100 pounds of worms per year.

Moles are important members of plant life because they help to rid the area of insects that like to bore and attack plants. However, their quest for food and shelter often causes them to destroy the soil and damage the roots, stems, bulbs, or flowers.

Do moles eat plants?

While they might accidentally destroy the crops by digging zigzag and complex tunnels, they do not eat plants. They only see plants as a haven for their food.

What is their favorite meal?

Apart from their preference for worms and grubs, they will eat any insect along their way, including; spiders, grasshoppers, ants, millipedes, caterpillars, and more. They will also eat other smaller animals.

How much can moles eat?

Moles cannot store fat like many animals, which means they have to keep eating all the time. Also, they do not hibernate and are active all year round. During winter, when the worms and insects disappear farther into the earth, moles dig deeper. Moles eat more than their one-pound weight each day.

How much damage does moles feeding cause?

Moles are solitary and territorial animals except during breeding season. They have different tunnels for various purposes, such as emergency tunnels, feeding tunnels, and different tunnels to all food sources. It means the damage can become numerous in a small period of time.

Do moles eat trash?

Though it is rare for moles to invade human settlements, they might invade if there are worms in your trash. This is why you must dispose of trash regularly and properly.

  2. Moles are hosts to other parasites like ticks, fleas, and lice, and can transfer them to human settlements.
