Moles live most of their life underground, so they are not usually seen. However, the result of their work can be very destructive to lawns and gardens. They excavate tunnels and chambers, which result in mole hills becoming evident on the surface. If their runs are beneath planted gardens, they can also cause damage to plant roots. Moles are a carnivorous mammal and feed on invertebrate that find their way into their tunnels. A single mole can dig its way through 13m of soil in just one hour, potentially causing a lot of damage along the way. A typical lifespan of a mole is between 3 and 5 years, and litters are usually between 3 to 6 pups once per year.
