Expert Mole Control in Yorkshire
Moles are woodland animals by nature and can quickly colonise if not handled effectively. They can spread through adjoining residential properties or large areas of land (eg. golf courses).
As they need a well-established tunnel network to survive, the longer they are allowed to tunnel, the more settled they will become. So the longer the moles have been active, the more complex their tunnel network and the more difficult they are to control.
The common mole is an insectivore and not a rodent. Its diet is restricted to ground invertebrates such as grubs, millipedes, ants and so on. However, the mole’s primary food source is the earthworm. Moles will adapt to changes in food supply and source as different insects become available in different places and at different times of the year. Moles will jump ship and readily relocate back to other existing or deserted tunnels and they may leave an area if disturbed but will usually return when you least expect it.
Generally, moles are most active in Spring and Autumn as during Winter and Summer, they burrow deeper into the ground where they have an extensive underground systems including travel tunnels which are used daily.
Our method of control uses specialist traps that physically catch and dispatch the moles instantly. For more problematic mole infestations, we have the ability to apply gassing techniques.
