The REGION Barely grew a little warmer, woke up with the underground creatures. Well rest got to work with so much enthusiasm, that their work can be seen on every corner. A lot of people, however, over the diligence of moles wringing her hands.
Many gardeners now planning their disposal. It uses a special gel, which is hmyzožravcům applied to the corridors. Mole it gets dirty, then it would suck and in a couple of days of dying from poisoning. But , at first glance an ordinary, yet remarkable creature, by contrast, deserved the recognition.
Head of the department of Ecology and environmental olomouc, faculty of science professor Emil Weaver reported that the insectivores of the principle of spray should. They are extremely useful. “Dig up and cultivate the soil and feeds on harmful insects. I understand that the gardeners will be their importance to perceive otherwise,“ notes the expert.
He adds that if a person moles despite their benefit for the garden doesn’t just turn them away. “For example, using tube traps. One on each side of the openings through which the mole gets inside, but out to get. Tube just set up in its corridors, preferably along buildings, fences or something stronger. The trap must be regularly checked, to the inside the animal didn’t seem to bother. When he falls, plummets to somewhere away from the residence,“ advises Weaver.
There are even the so-called repellents. Their bottom spike is inserted directly into the mole of the hall, probably to the sound of the underground well spread. It’s about more acceptable and humane way, how the activity of the moles in the garden to suppress. They are even scarer is solar power, where you don’t have to worry about the battery.
The professor recommended to people who with the mole so the head do not break, apply a molehill as a great substrate for sowing or flower beds. Most of this loose soil does not contain seeds of weeds. Still notes, that the mole and the shrew are not as big a problem as the need to hryzec.
“The mole is recognized by krtinců in line behind each other, hryzec is not irregular, and in addition naughty just scoops, but nibbling on trees and shrubs,” explains the head of the department. Experts agree that most often bothers the mole people, who have a spliced single-species lawns to a nicety and panic them into a single nettle.
They like flat surfaces
Insectivores, they like flat surfaces, where they better baiting. Unfortunately, when you work to damage the roots of either grass, or vegetables. Remain under them vacuum and the plants wither. On the other hand, the presence of moles in the garden is indicative of the fact that it has healthy soil.
If you molehill don’t mind, leave them where they are. Their liquidation is limited access of air in mole tunnels and mole comes swamped with a hole to fix, or take a new one. Will be added as more and more piles. No method to drive away the mole is not wholly reliable, in addition, is a creature protected by the shield law. If you kill him, you may be fined several tens of thousands of crowns.
Chamber to rest
The mole is a master at digging tunnels long up to 150 meters. Their network can be found under deciduous forests, fields, pastures, and gardens in different depth. Home is in the loamy and clayey soil. Copes, however, even in pomáčené the soil by constructing a so-called mole castle. Looks like a giant, one even more feet tall a tump. Moles can the same stable corridor use throughout life, and even after multiple generations.
In the tunnels you insectivore builds a spherical chamber, which he used to rest, sleep and upbringing of the young. Interesting is, that from each can be differentiated through the tunnels of the male and female. The males lead the long straight, female irregular winding.
Also it is not true that moles had no eyes. Eyes are fully developed, but small and often hidden in the folds of the fur. Live to an average age of just 2.5 years, exceptionally up to five, because life under the ground is challenging. Otherwise, it is a creature solitary and territorial. The home territory of one mole, which prevents, can be a sprawling 300, but also up to three thousand square meters.
Mild-mannered mole resides only on its territory and does not exceed the boundaries of its neighbors. But experiments have shown that much about them knows very well, leads cognizant of their presence and behavior. When was a mole moved away from his territory, a neighbor of his hallway immediately worked.
