Things that you maybe don't know about that perisher...
Since the last outbreak of Foot and Mouth disease, when rural pest controllers were unable to gain access to vast areas of countryside, there has been a massive increase in recorded Mole numbers throughout Great Britain. Combined with the exceptionally wet and mild winters of late - this has contributed to this population explosion. With abundant food supplies and little in the way of control taking place, they have been free to multiply to plague proportions. Moles have been reported appearing in places that previously had never had a Mole problem - gardens, grass verges, playing fields, bowling greens, all have been invaded. The once, finely manicured lawns, have been reduced to mound strewn eyesores - with a never ending supply of fresh molehills.

The molehill covered fields that we see, are the result of endless hours of tunnelling as the Mole digs more and more worm traps ( for this is all they are) and deposits the excess soil on the surface. In light soil, a Mole can dig around 100 Metres in a day. Moles usually work for 4 hours and rest for 4 hours, being most active at dawn and in the evenings. It’s the result of all this hard work that brings the Mole into conflict with man - damaging lawns, golf courses, cricket pitches and in the case of agriculture, ruining valuable silage crops. As a full time professional pest controller / molecatcher, it’s at this point, I get called in to try and control the number of Moles that are causing a problem.
