Moles are small cylindrical mammals adapted to a subterranean lifestyle. They have velvety fur;
tiny or invisible ears and eyes; reduced hindlimbs; and short, powerful forelimbs with large paws for digging.
In fact, moles have the ability to tunnel up to 100 feet each day and do so by lying on their side and
pushing up to make a raised surface tunnel.We at Omaha Pest Control have exterminated hundreds of moles
and thousands of other unwanted pests.
Mole Extermination In Omaha, NE
Moles have been found to tolerate higher levels of carbon dioxide than other mammals, because their blood cells have special and unique hemoglobin protein. Moles are able to reuse the oxygen inhaled when above ground, and as a result, are able to survive in low-oxygen environments such as underground burrows.
Moles burrow lawns, raising molehills, and killing the lawn, for which they are sometimes considered pests. They can undermine plant roots, indirectly causing damage or death. However, contrary to popular belief, moles do not eat plant roots.
