Finding moles and the states new wildlife app
The eastern mole is the most common and abundant mole in Kentucky. Moles are often looked at as a nuisance animal because of their tendency to burrow large tunnels in residents yards. Some may be used as travel lanes, while others may be travelled only once after being dug. Surface tunnels are most notable after a warm rain or during the spring and fall when moles are actively searching for insects or earthworms. The most effective way to rid yourself of a mole problem is to set traps for them in your yard.
It’s important that residents properly and legally trap the animals. That is why the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife has debuted a new app that helps fight crime against the states wildlife. The new app allows citizens to report suspicious activity in real time. Officials say crime has been reduced in communities around the nation using similar technology.
