It’s rare to see a mole above ground, but these critters leave visible signs of their presence. Mounds and raised ridges are common. Their surface tunnels can be found where grubs and worms are plentiful. Voles leave difference evidence of their presence. They create runways in the ground that range from 1-2” wide. Their burrow is generally marked by holes near tree bases and in lawns.
Identifying Moles & Voles
Moles and voles have distinct differences. Moles are meat eaters and dine on insects, earworms, and grubs. Voles are vegetarians and eat the roots and stems of various plants.
