millions of pounds worth of damage to agricultural and horticultural land each year. Despite this they are either protected
or not regarded as pests across much of Europe.

it unpalatable, exposed stones from their hills can cause damage to machinery, also the fresh soil from their hills can cause
an invasion of weeds reducing crop yields.

them to dry out, wither and die. Mole hills also cause an invasion of weeds into areas where soil has been exposed, and their
hills are often regarded as unsightly.
