Moles are a nuisance pest that typically disrupt human activity and property by burrowing intricate tunnels throughout a property. These networks of tunnels can be vast, as moles spend nearly their entire lives digging and hunting for food, worms and insect larvae. A mole's tunnel network can destroy a yard or garden, as turf and other plants are disturbed during their digging. The mole's temporary tunnels are often visible above ground, and appear as convex lines on the ground surface. In agricultural applications, moles can threaten the crop yield due to the fact that their tunneling activity often destroys plant roots and disrupts irrigation systems in their path.
