 Moles can wreak havoc on your lawn and these critters are very tough for the average homeowner to eradicate.  Custom Pest Solutions has a lot of experience getting rid of these pests.   The mole is a five and one half to six inch long tunneling mammal that occurs throughout Florida. They can best be idenfied by their paddle like front feet.  Moles have small eyes and ears that are concealed by fur. 

Moles can become significant pests when they make foraging tunnels into lawns to find food. Mole tunneling in lawns and gardens separates the plant roots from the soil, and grass and other plants die where mole tunneling is extensive.
 The most visible damage caused by moles is the volcano-like mounds of dirt that they push to the surface when constructing their tunnels. Eventually, these molehills settle and form bare spots on lawns.  Moles can dig surface tunnels at a rate of 15 to 18 feet an hour and as much as 150-200 feet a day. Rich, well-irrigated soil is a good habitat for earth worms and soil insects. Studies have shown that earthworms are the “main course” in a mole’s diet. Expected life span for a mole is approximate 2-3 years.
