Moles are small, burrowing rodents with dense, straight brownish-black fur. They grow between 4 to 6 inches in length and have very poor eyesight. However, their sense of touch is immaculate because of their sensitive snout. The star-nosed mole’s snout is six times more sensitive to touch than a human hand. These rounded rodents have small eyes, no visible ears, and large claw-like front paws used for digging.
Why Do I Have Them?
Moles are primarily outdoor pests. It is very rare to find a mole in the house. Moles are on your property looking for food, especially earthworms and grubs. If substantial food is available, moles will nest in your yard. Moles are uncommon in Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin. They are more common in the central grassland region of the state.
Why Should I Be Concerned?
Often blamed for lawn damage caused by voles, moles can cause serious damage to your lawn with their digging activity and holes. Their underground tunnels can ruin your garden, grass, and plants.

Moles are sensitive to loud noises, so adding some wind chimes could deter moles. Planting certain plants like castor beans or narcissus may also repel moles because of their smell and taste.
