I love watching the history channel when archaeologists find secret tunnels that was made hundreds of years ago. Did you know that many homeowners actually have secret tunnels on their properties as well, but it's not the hundreds of years sort of tunnels that is found nor wanted. These tunnels are made by moles and can run all throughout the property without anyone even knowing until it's too late.
Moles are little mammals with long bodies, velvet fur, and short limbs with large and powerful paws. Those paws are for digging and more digging. They have 4 fingers with 2 thumbs and can breath underground for an extended length of time.
These nuisance animals can cause a lot of damage to farm lands and residential properties. On farms, they can contaminate animal feed so livestock will be malnourished. Think about it, it's a chain reaction starting with the livestock spiraling down to the grocery stores and buyers. While moles dig, they can also expose stones in the dirt that could be run over by the expensive machinery used on farms. Moles can damage young plants by disturbing the soil which hurts the rooting system and also damage drainage systems that is applied throughout the farm's vegetation.
Moles can also cause damage to individual properties. They can ruin any flower garden by disturbing the soil and rooting system. The lawn will eventually turn brown showing the exact tunnel shapes and the tunnels dug can collapse after a heavy rain which will leave your lawn looking like a puzzle instead of beautiful gardens that you put lots of time in to create.
