Are you having issues with a mole in the garden?
Our Maidstone mole catcher has an extensive knowledge base on both the behavior and movement of moles within the Kent County. This together with our trapping techniques allows us to quickly get rid of moles from gardens, paddocks, farms and golf courses. Moles are notoriously one of the hardest pests to eliminate unless you can read their movement and feeding patterns.
A single mole can destroy a lawn in just 24 hours leaving moles hills and tunnels in their wake. Moles do not hibernate but are often less active during hotter weather because they go deeper into the ground in search of worms.
As soon as the wetter weather arrives the worms will descend towards the surface with the moles closely behind. A single mole will consume a third of its body weight every single day which mainly consists of worms.
Our Maidstone mole catcher will make a visit to your property to set the required number of traps. These traps will be left for at least 48 hours to ensure all resident moles are caught. The traps are safely set under the ground away from children and pets.
A few days later we will return to inspect the traps and check how many moles have been caught. If there are signs of ongoing mole activity the traps will be left in for a further period. If we are happy all moles have been caught the traps will be removed.
Although moles are solitary animals they often reinfest an old tunnel network that has been vacated by another mole. If you notice new activity in the upcoming weeks or months give our Maidstone mole pest control Team a call.
Moles work on a 4 hour cycle feeding aggressively on worms and grubs. They dig tunnels in the soil to allow the worms to drop into them ready for collection. The mole will pass through the tunnel gathering its catch and return to its nest and store them.
While the mole is tunneling it will push the excess soil to the surface which creates a ‘mole hill’.
The number of moles you have depends on a few things. Generally if you call after the first signs of mole activity then it will be just the one mole. The longer a mole is left without calling a mole catcher then there is more chance of others moving in (especially during breeding season).
On larger jobs like farms the moles will happily share runs meaning a large number can be caught from a very small area.
When tackling a large mole infestation it’s financially beneficial for the customer to take out a contract with the Maidstone mole catcher ensuring not only all the present moles are caught but any future invaders are kept at bay.
