A few recent examples illustrating why you might wish to call in a traditional molecatcher sooner rather than later.

A mole devastating a seedling bed in a formal vegetable garden near Farnham, Surrey.

The gardener, a time-served ex-agricultural worker, and a friend of his had both tried over a couple of weeks, unsuccessfully, to trap this mole. I happened to visit on other business and was asked to have a go. One trap set - one mole caught overnight.

Mole damage to a newly built and seeded earth bank near Haslemere, Surrey.

The gardener had spent about three weeks trying to catch this mole. When I arrived there were 6 of his traps in the ground - I left them in situ and within 24 hours had caught the mole in one of the three traps I had set.

Mole creating havoc on a riverside lawn between Guildford and Godalming in Surrey:

The gardener at this property had been given instructions to tread heavily all over the lawn to discourage the mole. Eventually, as the "treading in" strategy proved a failure, I was called in and caught the mole with the traps I set on my first visit.

Be kind to gardeners -
Call in a professional molecatcher!

And lastly,  here's one for those who are considering a DIY approach to catching that "pesky" mole.

A client near Petersfield in Hampshire confessed to having bought and set some half-barrel traps to try to catch a mole. He failed. I wonder if it could have been, in part, because he had been setting the traps upside-down!

The weather - it has an effect on mole activity

Worms, the primary food source for the mole, move through different layers in the soil and occupy different areas as the weather changes from day to day. Naturally, in his quest for food, the mole follows.
