Moles are mammals having an extraordinary and distinctive hemoglobin protein in their blood cells.
They have small ears and eyes, powerful limbs for digging purpose.
They mainly feed on earthworms and other kind of small insects found on soil.
They are being called as insectivores and can cause considerable damage to lawns.
It is found that they can tolerate higher levels of carbon dioxide when compared to other animals.
This characteristic alone makes them to survive even in low oxygen environments such as subversive burrows.
The most effective and practical way to control moles are by using trapping methods.
Scissor trap method can be used for deep mole runs and in subsurface, and a harpoon trap method is used when the tunnels are near the surface.
