Abstract/Contents:Moles are small mammals that have "paddle-like forefeet and prominent toenails". They have strong legs, and eyes so small that upon first glance they seem to be missing. Moles can be found in woodlands, grasslands, and lawns. They make very large underground passageways, which usually appear as bumps in the soil. They eat earthworms and white grubs. Since mole tunnels may destroy roots, they often damage grass. Different ways to control moles are discussed, such as; changing the environment, trapping, sheet-metal barriers, and pesticides.
