Moles can cause havoc once they burrow into an area leaving huge damage to gardens, playing fields, grazing land and horse paddocks.
Types of mole control we provide
Small areas like garden lawns and flowerbeds: For small areas we would normally work on a mole bounty system. In short, you only pay for mole catching once we actually catch a mole. Typically we would keep attending to empty and reset traps until all mole activity has stopped. (i.e. no more catches and no new mole hills).
Larger areas like a large garden, estate, sports pitch, public amenity area, churchyard, paddock or field: For these types of areas we would either operate a cost per visit, or arrange an ongoing mole control with a monthly fee that guarantees we provide regular visits to monitor and control any moles.
Whatever your mole problem, we are happy to advise on the best solution for you.
We trap moles in South Cambridgeshire, Bedford and but we will travel further for larger infestations. Our general radius includes all the postcodes that start with the following:
Why remove a mole Infestation?
Moles dig tunnels and the resulting excavated soil is moved to the surface of the ground resulting in molehills.
The excess earth pushed above ground by garden moles causes damage to lawnmowers and the underground tunnels create a trip hazard when they collapse. The newly dug soil presents an opportunity for weeds to grow.
Moles can destroy a lawn with their digging ability, and the tunnelling will eventually kill grass and plants in flowerbeds. Garden moles are a most unwelcome garden pest! Get rid of moles in the garden, call today!
Farm and paddock moles
Molehills create an opening for weeds to proliferate, and can damage some agricultural machinery.
Livestock and horses are particularly vulnerable to the trip hazard of molehills and tunnel collapse.
Silage and hay crops can be spoilt by earth being harvested along with the grass. This can cause listeriosis in sheep.
Burrowing by farm moles will stunt crop growth or kill the plant.
How do we get rid of moles?
Trapping is the most reliable and humane method of mole control and does not contaminate soil with poisons. Mole trapping is our specialty, and we use only the best quality traps (UK made) to ensure humane removal. It is a specialist skill that has to be honed over the years. Although mole catching looks easy, it is actually very difficult to get right for an amature. If a mole is alerted to a trap, it can become very trap shy and will actively avoid the trap and probably fill it with soil. Once a mole is trap shy, the job becomes immeasurably more difficult. Trapping moles can be carried out safely and unobtrusively by an experienced mole catcher and can be typically done in such a manner as to allow the ground to still be used for animals or recreation.
We do not use any illegal methods for getting rid of moles (Burrow busting with explosive gasses, or gassing with poisonous gasses.
