With most of its time spent below the ground, Moles (Talpa europaea), a member of the Talpidae family, can’t be seen as often like other wildlife animals. An interesting characteristic of moles: they eat soil insects as their main food source.
Known as insectivores, moles staple food are the insects they encounter underground. They usually like all types of worms from earthworms and grub worms, with their body mass mostly made up of the high protein they get from the worms that they eat every day. Building tunnels require lots of sweat and strength, so the worms they eat provide the needed energy and muscle for all those digging. Solitary and territorial, one mole can do as much damage to your property’s backyard, garden or lawn.
