DIG THIS | Moles are tunneling for love
Feb 26 2009, 9:26 PM
Moles are tunneling all over Kitsap County. Lawns are especially vulnerable. Master Gardeners from all over county have been reporting moles tunneling here and there. So, what’s a gardener to do? The answer: not much. For what it’s worth here are a few tips and techniques to try, plus several websites with very good information to peruse.
Moles are digging up mole hills and tunnels this time of year because they’re out looking for mates. It’s an amorous pursuit for these somewhat cute but shy creatures. Mole mating season burrows from February to early March. Soon they’ll be having their families estimated at 2.9 pups per litter — not sure what .9 of a mole looks like.
In several weeks (about mid April) the parents kick the pups out of the den and these juvenile moles travel anywhere from 14 to 925 yards away to their own new homes, meaning more tunneling and mounding. But if you live near a forest, they’ll head that way and live happily ever after.
