Although moles are often depicted as shy creatures in TV and films, moles in fact remain in their tunnels because of poor eyesight rather than shyness. During the day their blindness makes them easy prey. Even when they appear above ground at night, they make easy prey for owls. If you’re in need of a mole catcher, call Pestforce Derbyshire (Pest Control) today for humane, effective mole removal.Moles breed in early spring with the female moles gestation period lasting about a month. The female mole then gives birth to between 2 and 6 mole babies. The baby moles are usually completely independent within a month after birth. The average lifespan of a mole is about 4 years but some species of mole have been known to live until they are 6 or 7 years old.
Derbyshire’s Local Mole Catcher
Moles are very territorial animals amongst their own kind. Their tunnels connect, with corridors being shared across territories. Moles eat small insects, especially worms, which makes them a particular problem to gardeners. Moles often see beautifully landscaped areas and their personal playgrounds, as the organic matter rich soil in landscaping is easy to dig through, and full of worms – perfect for their needs. At this point, moles become a problem, as their burrowing results in molehills, which mar the landscape and completely spoil the beauty of a well-cared for landscape.
