Why can't we pray to Moses?

I understand how praying to the saints in heaven can help us but why do we never pray to the old testament characters? If they are in heaven can they not help us too? Or is the problem that we do not know for a fact that they are in heaven so we shouldn’t take the chance?

McDivot,
