Mole Control (Talpa europaea)
There are 35 to 40 million moles estimated living in the UK. Although it is not present in Ireland. They live almost all of their life underground in tunnels. They eat worms and other soil invertebrates they find there. Moles patrol their tunnel systems 3 times a day. Alternately active or sleeping every 4 hours. Mole is the only mammal to live solely underground. They achieve this by having a greater proportion of red blood cells than other mammals. This helps them to live in an environment where oxygen levels are low, typically 7%.
Moles have a solitary life, apart from mating. When they usually breed just once a year. The female has a litter of between 2 – 7 pups. Within five weeks they are weaned and leave the nest.
Mole hills can cause a lot of damage to lawn mowers and harvesters. As they bring large stones up to the surface. Tunneling systems can effect plants and crops by undermining their roots. Which can cause stunted growth or they may die due to the soil drying out. The tunnels may collapse underfoot and can cause injury to animals and people. Schools have been taken to court and fined. Racehorses especially can break legs.
