Mole Mating and Reproduction
Gestation usually lasts between 4 – 6 weeks.
Depending on the species, mole litters usually range from 2 – 6 baby moles (or pups).
All species of moles breed only once per year.
Pups do not stay under the mother’s care for very long.
Do moles come inside the house?
Finding Moles in Homes
It is unusual to find a mole in the house, but it does happen. Moles create complex tunnels underground, preferring the loose dirt of well-tended yards and gardens. While digging, the pests may get into homes through damaged basement windows or foundation cracks near the soil line.

How do moles reproduce?
Breeding season for a mole depends on species but is generally February through May. Males search for females by letting out high-pitched squeals and tunneling through foreign areas. Townsend moles mate in February and March, and the 2–4 young are born in March and April after a gestation period of about 1 month.
How long do baby moles stay with their mother?
At four to five weeks, the pups are weaned, and at 33 days they leave the nest. By five to six weeks, pups leave their mother and their home tunnel completely. Moles typically live three years, according to YPTE.
