When considering a mole catching service, please consider these helpful points.

1. It's unwise to pay a pest control company/mole catcher any kind of up front fee, if nothing is caught, you could be out of pocket.

2. Always make sure that it's all moles caught or no fee. A pay for what is caught arrangement can result in all moles not being caught on completion. You could be out of pocket and still have a mole problem.

3. Always see evidence a mole catcher has caught moles, all good mole catchers should volunteer doing this for a client.

Control

Control is relatively easy with the use of traditional traps, which can be placed in tunnel systems. Gassing can be unreliable and is not an environmentally friendly option and would not be carried out by Essex & Herts Pest Control.

Habitat

The Mole is found throughout Britain mainly in areas of good soil suitable for tunnelling. They avoid areas that have stony, waterlogged or acidic soil.
They are most abundant in permanent grassland and deciduous woodland. But can also be found in residential gardens, parks, cemeteries, golf courses etc.

Importance

The most damage will be in agriculture. Soil from Molehills in grass silage can result in spoilt unpalatable silage and is a likely source of Listeriosis in Sheep.
Molehills can spoil the look of areas such as cemeteries, parks and golf courses. Crop damage can occur in when the Mole tunnels under seedlings and plants resulting in wilting and sometimes death. Damage to lawn mowers.

Biology

The Mole is a solitary mammal and lives predominantly underground. They feed mainly on earthworms but also on other various invertebrates including slugs and insect larvae. The breeding season lasts from February to June with normally just 1 litter per year. After a 4-week gestation period, the young are born, 5 weeks later; they will leave the nest to start their own tunnelling system.
