About Professional Heswall Mole Trapping

Moles are solitary animals that live underground in your yard or garden. They mostly feed on insects and worms that fall into their underground tunnels.

Mole Facts

A mole is a small animal that is between 15 and 20 centimetres in length. They are covered in fur that is black velvety or grey in colour. Moles love burrowing underground using their front shovel-like limbs.

Habits
If there is a mole in your yard, you are likely to find new molehills every day. The reason for this is that moles usually burrow at night. They can dig more than 100 meters in a single night.

Because moles have poor eyesight, they rely on their smells, hearing and touch to not only find their food but also sense danger.

Moles usually dig two types of tunnels. The first types of tunnels are located just beneath the surface of the soil. These shallow holes are normally between 4 and 5 centimetres in diameter. These types of tunnels are dug by males during the breeding season when looking for mates. The other type s of tunnels are dug deep into the ground – 5 to 20 centimetres underground. These deep tunnels are used for feeding and breeding purposes.

Feeding
The mole diet mainly consists of soil invertebrates, insect larvae and earthworms. An interesting fact about moles is that they eat after every four hours. It does not matter whether it is daytime or at night, they have to eat after 4 hours. An adult mole can consume at least 50 g of worm every day. It is important that you hire a Heswall mole trapping and control expert as soon as you see a molehill. Without proper mole control, your garden or yard will be an eyesore after a few days.

Breeding
