(talpa europaea)

The average mole weighs approximately 4oz and is about 6 inches in length, with very limited eyesight but a very good sense of smell and touch eating its own weigth in food a day. It feeds in cycles of approximately 4 hours and its main diet are worms but will also eat slugs, leather jackets, beetles and alike.
The moles breed between Feb and July and can have one litter of up to six young. Its unbelieavable how such a small animal can create such a mess by destroying lawns, gardens, sports fields, paddocks and agricultural land as they go about their daily cycle. the mole can determine the quality and size of your silage crop by undermining the crop and allowing the roots the dry out. They are also a hazard to livestock. Horses and cattle have been known to badly injure themselves by breaking through the surface caused by the tunneling activities of this creature. YOU DON'T HAVE TO PUT UP WITH IT!
