Of the six pest-species in the USA, the most common is the Eastern Mole, the others are the Star-nosed, Hairy-tailed, Coast, Townsend's, and Broadfooted. The Eastern Mole measures 5 to 8 inches head to tail and weighs 2.5 to 5oz. Moles use and dig elaborate tunnel systems, up to 100 feet a day. They will reoccupy a vacant tunnel if food becomes abundant. Moles typically breed in late winter to early spring, the young are weaned between 7 and 12 weeks after breeding and you will likely see higher levels of activity. They indirectly kill plants and bulbs by digging beneath them and depriving the plant of nutrients and water.
