    No, Gophers eat vegetation

    Shrews and moles eat bugs

    Gophers = BAD



    Shrews and Moles = GOOD

    85% of a moles diet consists of earthworms and insects in the soil. The balance of their diet include seeds, grass roots, etc. Earthworms are one of their favorites, and although grubs may attract moles to an area, the elimination of grubs will not remove the moles if there are earthworms present, and conversely, the presence of moles is not a sure sign that you have grubs, especially if it has been treated for grubs.

    Pocket gophers eat a wide variety of plants. Above ground they take leafy vegetation from the vicinity of burrow openings; underground they devour succulent roots and tubers. They often prefer forbs and grasses, but diet shifts seasonally according to the availability of food and the gophers' needs for nutrition and water. For example, water-laden cactus plants may become a major dietary component during the hot and dry summer months in arid habitats. The external cheek pouches are filled with parts of plants by dextrous motions of the forepaws for transportation to cache storage areas in the burrow. The storage areas are usually sealed from the main tunnel system

    I am pretty sure moles eat grubs. They are in the green grass with tunnels everywhere. Since when do people like moles? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img] I do not enjoy having my yard filled with tunnels or air pockets.

    Edit:
    I do like moles but not in my yard.

    Cool

    its that human desire for neatness. That has endangerd some plants. Because land owners consider the messy *cough fourleaf pawpaw* *cough wireweed*

    and a hazard *cough fragrent smallely -apple*

    From the animals point of veiw, it is us who is invading their space. With habitat development, where can the animal go? into other wild areas? No, because other *cough- moles* have established territorys in it.

    And anyway moles keep down grubs, wich is a far greater threat to a healthy lawn the the moles themselves (wich areate the soil)
    that makes no logic
