Weight: 60…130 g

Habitat: Entire mainland of Estonia, excluding islands (Saaremaa, Muhu, Hiiumaa)

Lifestyle: Chooses its habitat according to nutrients in the soil, moderate humidity and landscape. Prefers border areas of different types of habitats (edge of the wood, clearings, banks of rivers and creeks). Abundant populations live in regions of cultural landscape: dry wooded meadows, parks, thickets, hayfields and pastures and gardens. Lives underground, rarely comes on the surface of the ground. Scoops long underground channels proceeding from the nestling chamber. Borrows are necessary for finding food and connecting distant burrows. Active all day long, especially at night. Active throughout the year, also in winter. Stores food for winter: worms (makes them immovable by biting through the nerve ganglion).

Food: exclusively bestial. Worms, insects and their grubs. But also mice, shrews, rats, frogs, lizards, snakes etc.

Family: Mating season is in March-April. Gives birth to the young once a year. Litter 3…8 babies.

Development: Gestation up to 40 days. Babies are born in May. The newborn are helpless, blind and with no hair. Length of babies about 3 cm, body mass 2.2…2.7 g. The female feeds babies with milk for one month, after that they start looking for food themselves. Sexually mature in ten months. Life expectancy is 3…5 years.

Control: in addition to substances sold in shops (which often give no desired results or just scare them off), we use a special spike to find its burrows and use a special gas batcher to fill the burrows with gas to terminate them.
Note: if you want to control moles in your garden, do not scatter the molehills or stamp down the burrows. Otherwise we cannot find the burrows and the control measures are not effective. If you are concerned about your garden/lawn and find an uninvited visitor (the mole), do not wait any more but contact us at once.
