Moles eat the bugs not the roots, but they make tunnels that could cause the roots to die. I have noticed mole activity around the bananas, probably a hotbed for insects due to the increased nutrients. I just press down the tunnels as best as I can trying not to disturb the roots.

That's good to know, I was worried they were feasting on my plants lol. I did have something eat a small pups roots and corm last season, just figured it was moles. It was a healthy pup, went to water it and it just fell over I could see teeth marks on what was left of the corm. After just doing a Google search it might have been voles.
