Course he does. Cultivated gardens have more worms to eat and easier soil to tunnel. They're active in my garden at the mo. Normally it's quiet at this time of year but it's been so warm they're in full tunnelling mode.
I have tried humane traps but never caught one though I have liberated live ones caught when digging up weeds and free dthem in the field and woods across the neighbouring paddock's stream but I've also sorted them with one of these which we can buy in Belgium and France - http://www-be.detaupeur.com/
Moles not only wreck lawns. They make collapsible tunnels which are dangerous to find by surpise - sprained ankles, twinged backs. They also uproot precious plants in borders and can lift slabs and pavers and make them uneven.
