Townsend Moles and Pacific Moles are the most prevalent types of moles found in Oregon. They have velvety fur; tiny or invisible ears and eyes; relatively atrophied hind limbs; and short, powerful forelimbs with large paws oriented for digging.

Nuisance Concerns: The primary nuisance concern is that they dig, and can damage landscaping. They create a few different types of tunnels. The surface feeder tunnels often snake out all across a lawn. They are created when a mole digs its way through the shallow dirt in search of food: earthworms, grubs, and other small invertebrates. Because a mole has a high metabolism and is very active, it can create a lot of these surface ridges. People often complain about the appearance to the lawn, or say that the ground feels “squishy,” a result of stepping on the loose, raised tunnels. Moles also create deeper holes and chambers, and will often push large piles of dirt up to the surface of the lawn, and many people find these unsightly or damaging as well.
