Memphis and the surrounding Mid-South region boast a unique charm, but they also share a common challenge during the winter months — moles. These small, subterranean creatures can wreak havoc on lawns and gardens, causing frustration for homeowners. In this blog, we’ll delve into the habits of moles in the winter and explore effective solutions provided by All-State Pest and Lawn to keep your property mole-free.
Understanding Moles in Winter:
Moles are active year-round, and winter is no exception. In the colder months, moles tend to burrow deeper into the soil, seeking warmth and food. Contrary to popular belief, moles do not hibernate. Instead, they continue to tunnel through the soil, primarily in search of insects, earthworms, and other small invertebrates. Their activity can be particularly problematic for lawns and gardens, as their tunnels disrupt the root systems of plants and create unsightly mounds of soil.
Winter Habits of Moles:
Deeper Tunnels: During winter, moles dig deeper tunnels to escape colder surface temperatures. This behavior protects them from harsh weather conditions.
Feeding Patterns: Moles remain active in their quest for food, relying on their acute sense of smell to locate insects beneath the soil. In winter, they may be more focused on dormant pests and larvae.
Mound Formation: Winter mole activity often results in the formation of molehills or surface tunnels, which can be unsightly and damaging to the aesthetics of your lawn.
