Identifying a Mole

Moles are peculiar animals. Although they are very similar to rodents, moles are a completely different creature with a different diet and different habits! In North America, the Eastern mole is the most prevalent, followed by the hairy-tailed Western North American moles. Moles will attack landscaping around homes and buildings; this can be very annoying for home and business owners who maintain a nicely kept lawn!

Appearance & Habitat

Though moles are not known to surface often, and there are multiple species, moles are easily identified. Moles typically have the following descriptive characteristics. 

  • Small and nimble (roughly 6" in length)
  • Webbed front claws for digging
  • Grayish-brown in color
  • Soft silky fur
  • Incredibly small eyes and ears

Moles spend a vast majority of their time and build their homes underground for many reasons. Protection from predators, a safe environment to rear young, and to stay warm in the cold winter months, are a few. Moles are incredible diggers and prefer loose soils. Because of this, moles are usually found in meadows, grasslands, and woodlands. Human landscaping creates the perfect home for these little creatures and the tailored and damp ground is perfect for digging!

Mole Problems


Because moles thrive underground, it is highly unlikely that they would ever enter a home. Yards, and gardens on the other hand, however, are at great risk, especially those that use mole-preferred soil. Gardens tend to offer favorable conditions.


Because moles tunnel so close to the ground surface, they commonly leave behind mounds of dirt and kill grass and other plants when they burrow. As populations of moles grow, they are capable of more destruction, and can ruin aesthetically pleasing fields, as well as destroy crop yields for farmers! 

Mole Control

Control and Safety

Unless property owners have the time to check traps and plant boundaries to exclude the small creatures from the area, professionals should be called to eliminate mole infestations. One method is to flood molehills in the spring, however; adult moles can usually flee in time and then return once more to re-inhabit the area.

Moles are difficult to trap and populations of the pest are hard to control. Individuals dealing with mole infestations should call Critter Control of Kansas City, as we maintain experienced workforces that specialize in mole removal.
