How to remove moles from your premises
Moles create havoc for many industries and private homes, causing considerable damage to sports fields, public parks, golf courses, private gardens and agricultural areas with their constant digging. Their tunnelling damages the roots of young plants, exposes stones and debris that can damage machinery. Moles will dig hundreds of feet of runs and can create a dozen or more mounds close to where they are living. The only legal methods of control which are proven to be 100% effective are trapping or gassing. For this reason, and the strict laws against releasing illegal chemicals into the soil, we would always recommend using a professional pest control service.

We aim to eradicate moles by either trapping or gassing.
Gassing is very restrictive and carries high risk during treatment.
Trapping is very effective however it’s labour intensive. Mole traps are available on our online store and can be placed by yourself.
