Problems caused by mole infestations and molehills
Moles are very common, living in the hills, woods and the open countryside of East Scotland and there are always more ready to invade fields and gardens. No matter how many we get rid of, the moles can keep moving in, throwing up molehills year after year.
Moles are very destructive too. They can throw up their mole hills and cause damage at any time, but the autumn, winter and early spring are when they really become active; they can work their way through a lawn or seeded field with incredible speed. The runs they dig below the surface damage the ground and form holes; these are dangerous on playing fields and in paddocks. The soil and stones they throw up in the molehills spoil the surface and damage valuable machinery. The soil also contaminates silage, causing the disease Listeriosis; this can make sheep and cattle ill or kill them.
Treating mole infestations and molehills
Don’t believe the articles about the loss of the ancient skills and knowledge of the traditional mole catchers, supposedly a dying breed in the 21st century. We were taught the country crafts of mole control by the old, time-served mole trappers and controllers who used to ply their trade across the hills of Perth & Kinross, Tayside and Angus; We are experts in getting rid of moles and mole control, we catch hundreds each year!
We can deal with moles just about anywhere. We’ve used mole pest control in Crieff on a 500ha farm. We got rid of moles in a patio using mole pest control in Perth. We’ve got rid of molehills in many gardens using mole pest control in Kinross, and we’ve cleared a tennis court with mole pest control in Blairgowrie. We’ve even got rid of moles from a swimming pool using mole pest control in Auchterarder. We’ve rescued the grounds of a holiday chalet park from molehill damage by using mole pest control in Pitlochry. Many customers use our mole pest control in Dunkeld; the moles in the hills and woods around Dunkeld really do cause problems, especially over the winter months. And, where other mole catchers had failed, we cleared up a long-standing mole problem in the extensive grounds of a country house using all our skills of mole pest control in Auchtermuchty.
Mole control methods that we use to get rid of moles and molehills
We use mole trapping, the traditional method of putting break-back mole traps in the mole runs, safely below the surface of the ground. This is a skilled craft and we know all the old, country ways of using mole traps to get the best results.
Mole traps kill moles instantly and are a humane method of control. We use sturdy, good quality traps which help us to get very good mole catches and clearance rates; using good quality traps also makes sure that the mole trap works humanely. Poor quality equipment only produces poor quality mole control.
Break-back mole traps are allowed under The Small Ground Vermin Traps Order 1958 which was made under The Pests Act 1954, and they are exempted from the Spring Traps Approval (Scotland) Order 2011.
We also use poison gas, the very effective method of gassing moles in their mole runs using Aluminium Phosphide (poison gas). This gas is legally licensed in the UK and is used for rat and rabbit control too. It can be dangerous if not used properly and its purchase and use are tightly controlled. We’ve used this gas for many years though, so we know exactly what we’re doing and how to use it safely. And we’re up-to-date with the latest legal requirements; we hold the new, City & Guilds Level 2 Award in the Safe Use of Aluminium Phosphide for Vertebrate Pest Control.
You can trust us to use gas for mole control safely and legally so that you, your family, pets & livestock and the environment are unharmed.
And we can collapse the mole runs after we’ve cleared them of moles. However, we’ve found that this isn’t really an effective method of mole control; moles are such incredibly good diggers that it doesn’t take them long to carve out more mole runs beneath the earth – and throw up yet more molehills when they do it!
