Are Moles Really Vermin and Do They Need To Be Killed?

I recently received an email from someone who had been viewing my website, stating how shocked and appalled they were that mole catchers existed in this country, and how they couldn’t understand why we do what we do.

To those people who have never enquired about real moles or come to face to face with the damage and destruction they cause, their knowledge of these vicious creatures extends to rosy portrayals of them in films and cartoons.

Moles are pests

But this furry, friendly image of moles is wrong. They are vermin.

They have been labelled as such by countless countryside organisations, farmers, landowners and scientists. They are a member of the insectivore family, and if we’re not careful, they will invade farms and gardens and become a devastating infestation.

They can ruin livelihoods, and they can be a danger to other animals and to humans.

Why we catch and kill them

As a professional, trained mole catcher, I make sure to catch moles in the most humane way possible.

Unfortunately, that does mean killing them. But I can assure you it’s the best solution, and the quickest, most painless death.

Catching a mole and setting it free isn’t effective. They will travel miles and miles to return to their old tunnels if they have been productive there.

As a qualified and experienced mole catcher, I’ve tried and tested many different methods to ensure my customers can enjoy a totally mole free garden after they have called me.

Deterrents simply do not work and home remedies and repellants are often dangerous to wildlife, poisoning and hurting both moles and other animals without killing them.

And there are no guarantees that a trap to catch a mole alive won’t actually incapacitate and harm a mole, causing unnecessary suffering.

Why I take pictures

I take pictures of the moles we catch to show that we operate in an entirely humane way. There are many cowboy mole catchers out there who don’t have a clue what they are doing. As a result, they’ll try and do whatever they can to get rid of moles from a garden or field.

This could mean using poison, (which is illegal), fumigating tunnels, and even setting fires underneath your garden. This is not safe, it’s not right, and it’s inhumane.

With the specific traps we use, moles do not suffer. They don’t feel any pain. In fact, they don’t know what’s hit them. It’s quick and painless.

The owner of this property in the village of West Felton near Oswestry, needed the mole activity to halt, in fear of it detering prospective buyers. That's when he called us, we were round there the next day, after assessing the mole activty, three claw mole traps were set, and marked for clear identification. 

The traps were checked today and I was pleased to see little activity, always a keen indicator of a catch, and there in the next claw mole trap the dead mole was.

When Will My Mole Hibernate For Winter?

Have you seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert yet? With all the animals in the woods, and the hare which saves the bear from sleeping through Christmas. It’s quite a good advert. But you’ll notice that it’s the bear they have to wake up. It’s not a mole. And do you know why it’s not a mole? 
Mole’s don’t hibernate. Contrary to popular belief, moles don’t sleep through the winter. They keep just as active as they have done all year. Because they have such an active metabolism, moles can’t store fat, and so they can’t save any food for over the winter months. So, they just keep digging, and keep eating, right through December. 
That means there’s no rest for your garden, or your farm. And no rest for Mr. Mole Man either. 
And while we might all slow down and get a little bit tired and ready for the holidays, moles don’t. They’re just as active as ever, and nothing will stop them. It’s windy, they just keep going. It’s cold, they just keep digging. It’s snowy, they just keep building those mole hills. Even a torrential flood, or a frozen lake won’t stop them, because they can swim too! 
BUT...! You don’t have to worry! Because Mr. Mole Man is ready for the winter as well, completely kitted out and ready to come and find those moles for you. He’ll battle all the elements to expertly set traps and capture those moles for you. 
If you get Mr. Mole Man in now though, you won’t have to worry about the moles in your garden hibernating. In fact, you could actually hibernate yourself, because you won’t have to worry about what your garden will be like tomorrow. You can rest, relax and enjoy the warmth of the indoors, safe in the knowledge that your garden will be just as you left it when you return.

I was called to a residential property in Wappenshall, the garden had been showing signs of mole activity for some time. On arrival I assessed the extent of the mole infestation, which was stemming from an adjoining heath. A number of mole claw traps were set and today I am pleased to report that I have caught one mole.

I was called to this client's house in Rushbury, Shropshire where the extent of the mole infestation was very evident. As a mole catcher I pinpointed the most suitable areas to set my mole catching equipment as mole deterrents. The claw mole traps were checked today and with no fresh mole hills it would seem that I have got rid of the moles. To ensure that no further moles are in the tunnels the traps were reset and these will be checked again soon.

I was called to a customer's house in Plaish, Shropshire, where I had previously trapped a number moles in 2012. The infestation was assessed and a number of traps were set; when I checked the traps earlier this week five moles had been caught. There were signs of cannibalism and sprung traps which would suggest moles are still using the runs, and I intend to reset the traps to ensure any remaining moles are caught.

I caught this mole in the Leebotwood area of Shropshire, my customers garden was deluged with mole hills and this was causing problems when mowing the lawn. So after a brief chat, I set a number of traps, and on checking again this week, I have removed one mole from the lawn. I identified further areas and set some more traps which are to be checked again soon.
