Garden Mole Catching & Removal

Mole Catching

The first sign of a mole is the dreaded molehill appearing all over your garden, turf, lawn or field. They are easily established as garden inhabitants due to their ability to tunnel 4 metres an hour, creating complex underground burrow systems, which is why it is important to have expert mole removal treatment.

Suppose you have a mole come to stay. In that case, it won’t be long till your garden resembles a lunar landscape, not just causing damage to your lawn but rapidly becoming a trip hazard to humans and pets alike.

Tunnelling also damages the roots of plants and flowers and can dig up stones and debris, damaging machinery.

Cause of Mole Invasion

If a mole has visited, it’s for one reason only. Food.

Whether it is a grown mole or a young mole leaving home searching for new territory, if your garden is rich in worms and insects, this will be an attractive place for them to start burrowing.

80% of a mole’s diet is earthworms. Due to their high metabolism, they will feed every 4 to 5 hours and consume up to two-thirds of their body weight each day, feeding on the invertebrates that fall into their system of tunnels.

Signs You May Have Moles

The molehill is the first and most obvious sign of a mole in your garden. This is simply the excavated soil thrown up onto the surfaces of lawns.

As moles can burrow up to 4 metres an hour, they quickly mount up, building up to six new molehills in 24 hours.

A mole tunnelling through the soil can also show signs of disturbance to the roots of seedlings and other small plants and vegetable plots.

Mole Control Treatment

Wallace Pest Control is a long-time member of the Guild of British Molecatchers.

This is one of the only organisations providing nationally recognised training and certification for traditional mole control methods. The guild aims to promote ethical and environmentally sustainable mole control methods.

This benefits the nation as we support our farmers.

Moles are not simply an unsightly inconvenience; they can be a death trap for livestock due to shallow tunnels near the surface causing serious injury.

Moles also contaminate grassland for feeding livestock through soilborne bacteria such as listeria.
