Mole Population Explosion

Have you heard, the mole population has exploded this year? Having a very wet year coming out of years of drought have caused moles to be much more noticeable this season. Moles feast on grubs and worms so it is no surprise that they follow their food source. Usually grubs and worms move deeper into the soil as the soil dries out during the summer months, but conversely this year the wet conditions have kept these insects “on top”.
