Nothing detracts from the beauty of a well kept lawn than a bunch of ugly mole hills! This can be very frustrating for homeowners. Townsend's moles are the most common with velvety black fur and a pointed snout, and can grow to 8 or 9 inches. The Coast mole is similar in appearance but is only 6 or 7 inches in length. Both are found only in the Northwest. They can quickly plow through a lawn, digging tunnels at 15 feet or more per hour! They make a maze like system of connections, with surface tunnels mostly used for feeding, and deep tunnels used for traveling. About 90% of a mole's diet is earthworms, but they will eat other insects and grubs, and occasionally will feed on roots and plant bulbs. Moles work so hard that they eat their body weight in worms every day!
