Although the actual mole (Talpa europaea) is rarely sighted its damage most certainly is. We are specialist wildlife control operators i.e. moles, rats, rabbits, foxes, squirrels, foxes, deer etc- so if you have a problem with moles dont hesitate to contact us.
Mole hills and mole tunnels are easily spotted, especially if they appear in a garden or other landscaped area.
The mole hill is basically a heap of loose soil that has been forced out of the moles underground tunnel system. The tunnels themselves generally range in depth from 5 to 20 cm below the soil surface.
The primary damage caused by moles is:
- Aesthetically unpleasing
- Unevenness of ground
- Loss of amenity of playing fields/public areas
- Damage to paddocks making them unsafe for use
- Spoilage of silage
- Damage to moving machinery
- Damage to grass and/or seedlings/plants
For us the traditional mole catchers ways of removing moles is still favoured i.e. the use of mole traps. There are various types of mole traps available to use with the duffus (or half-barrel), Fenn scissor or talpex traps being the most commonly used. The range of traps also means we can trap moles on various types of soil i.e. sandy, clay etc
Although we prefer to use traps wherever possible, we do concur that in certain situations the use of a gassing product (aluminium phospide) may be more suitable and effective. We are suitably trained and certificated in the use of both Talunex and Phostoxin for the control of moles, rats and rabbits.
We offer mole control and trapping on all scales, be it a small back garden to a large agricultural setting.
Although based between Cambridge and Ely we are happy to travel throughout Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk to catch your moles..
And no we haven’t had any success with the various mole vibrating or sonic mole repellers that are on the market……………….
