Mole and Vole animal control and mole removal in Florida is best left to the mole pest and mole vermin removal specialists.  Moles
are from the family Talpidae.  This family of animals also includes shrew-moles and desmans.  Moles in Florida are most commonly
the Eastern mole, which is also the most widespread type of mole and the most damaging.  Moles cause damage to landscaping,
lawns, property, and homes due to their extensive digging.

The common mole primarily eats insects, such as earthworms, millipedes, centipedes, and ants.  The mole forages for these insects
near home foundations and can cause extensive damage underground, which you cannot see until it is too late.  If a mole is spotted
on your property, a professional mole removal technician must be called as soon as possible.  Even one mole can cause major
damage to your property.

How to spot a mole?  Moles are the size of a small squirrel, they can weigh about 5 ounces and are about 6 inches in length on
average.  Moles can easily be identified by their long, snout-like nose and huge front claws which are ideal for digging and
foraging.  Moles are so adept at digging, they have been clocked at creating tunnels as fast as 18 feet per hour.

If a mole or more obvious molehill is spotted, a mole removal specialist needs to be called right away.  Moles reproduce and create
even larger tunnel networks.  They can have one litter each year, including 2-6 young, and the litters arrive between mid-April and
May.  Moles don’t hibernate and they cause extensive lawn damage up until the lawn surface freezes in winter.  Because of the
warm climate in south Florida, mole digging and damage can go unchecked all year long.

One mole can destroy a property.  However, if a mole is spotted, there are usually more nearby.  Moles are extremely resilient in
their natural underground habitat, and prove very difficult to remove if the job is not handled by a mole pest control specialist.   
Moles are adept at living underground, their blood type is unique in that they can thrive in a low oxygen environment.

Moles are active and continue tunneling and digging any time of day.  However, they are rarely seen in an obvious setting due to
living underground.  One of the best ways to look for signs of moles is to identify their molehills, which they create when they
convey dirt out of their tunnels.  Excavated materials are piled in roughly circular mounds that are 6 to 24 inches in diameter and 2
to 8 inches high.  

Molehills are most commonly found in loose earth, such as the edges of lawns, property, fields, or woods.  The opening to the
molehill is usually in the center of the mound and is left plugged by dirt until the mole leaves the molehill.

Landscaped areas and lawns provide the perfect environment for moles.  These environments have a perfect food source for the
moles.  Because the soil in landscaped property is kept rich and high quality, and the constant irrigation and presence of organic
matter such as manure, all create the perfect environment for the mole’s food source to thrive.  This includes earthworms,
centipedes, and other insects.  If a mole or molehill is spotted, do not waste time in calling a mole control or mole animal removal
specialist, as the extensive network of tunnels will only continue to grow and cause more damage over time.
