well actually.......

this perked my curiosity as i lost my french reds to what i thought was moles. so i googled it.

apparently moles in washington not only eat insects but also plants and animals. proves that you might not want to camp in washington on the ground because you might not know whats eating on you.

a while back i read that moles don't like coffee. if want to get moles out of a certain area you can pour your left over coffee and coffee grounds in that area.
