Garden Moles: Practical Information

Garden Moles are a very common subterranean pest, found in residential gardens, parks and agricultural pastures across the UK. Moles damage lawns, disturb flower beds and create tunnels that over time collapse, leaving holes that feet and hooves get caught in, leading to injury.

Most garden mole problems begin quite innocently with just one or two small mole hills. Sometimes this is all you will see, but more often than not it will be just the beginning of the moles master plan. Moles prefer to live alone, and only get social when breeding season arrives in spring.

Where population density is high and available space is limited, larger numbers of moles may be present, especially where there have been moles for many years. This is because the tunnel networks can be so complex and extensive that moles rarely if ever meet, even if they do overlap a little.

We see the damage moles cause every week, and customers tell us the problems they've had, just trying to keep up them. They can burrow through 100 feet of soil in a single day, creating many new mole hills along the way. In some gardens a number moles can move from adjoining fields and decimate a garden with good soil in a few short weeks.

Moles can also deliver a savage bite, full of harmful bacteria. To avoid the pit falls of problem mole removal, why not give us a call and book a treatment.

How We Control Garden Moles

The most common method of mole control, is lethal trapping. Many types of trap are available, and when used correctly, work extremely well. We tend to use up to three different varieties together in order to get the very best results quickly. This said, moles can be very difficult to control.

Is Permanent Mole Control Possible?

Permanent control is rarely possible, with moles, because they will travel between suitable sites above ground. The important course of action to be taken here, is control and removal once two or three mole hills appear. The sooner we get to you, the lower the level of damage, and the more successful the treatment will be.
