Mole Catching in Much Wenlock

An eruption of moles in this garden lawn, led to only on thing, a call to Mr Mole Man.

Our aim to control the moles in this garden. 

A number of traps were set in line with the current activity, Talpex, Tunnel and Scissor all deployed to catch this mole.

On returning to check the traps, one mole had been caught and with no further activity all the mole traps were removed.

Mole Catching in Boreton, Shropshire

With a house on the market, the last thing you need is a mole making the garden looking. Well that is what confronted this client, and that is when they called Mr Mole Man.

A number of mole traps were set, using my experience and assessment of the moles recent activity. 

On checking the mole traps, one mole had been caught. With no further activity, all mole traps were removed.

Moles Are Moving, On This Warm Winter Night

It was the night before Christmas, and all was calm. Not a creature was stirring, not even a mole…

Actually, the moles sleeping at the bottom of your garden might be moving. They may well just be snuggling up in their burrows getting ready for a nap.

Or more likely, they’ll be just digging more and more tunnels underneath your prize lawn. Ready to ruin Christmas.

There’s no Christmas Break For Moles

You see, moles do not hibernate. Many people think they don’t have to worry about moles destroying their gardens, flower beds and lawns during the winter, because like the vast majority of mammals in the Shropshire countryside, they simply snuggle down and sleep out the cold months.

But they don’t. It’s a common myth. Moles do not hibernate, and they will continue in their routine of just 4-hour-bursts of sleep, using the rest of the time to dig, dig and dig.

For you, that could mean even more hassle and stress this Christmas, if you’re not careful. Now is the time to act, to ensure you enjoy a mole free holiday!

Warm and Active

As possibly the warmest Christmas on record, with December temperatures already hitting 18C, moles are pretty happy! They’re looking forward to unwrapping a great Christmas present - the chance to burrow up a mole hole on a lawn with new grass!

That sounds crazy in December, but it could well be true. Temperatures are so unseasonably warm, that grass could very well start growing again. The warm weather could mean plants blossoming sooner, flowers opening up quicker, and your garden looking pristine and beautiful even earlier than you had imagined.

But the warm weather also means those moles under your land are more active too. It’s like an Indian Summer for them; warm temperatures mean a burst of energy and no pesky ice or snow to deal with. They’re happy, they’re busy, and they’re causing more havoc, eager to dig up as much ground as they can whilst the weather is in their favour.

And warmer temperatures mean they’re closer to the surface, because they don’t have to go as deep to keep warm. Surface moles, means more mole hills! 

All they want for Christmas is more rain!

Finally, with all the wet weather we’ve been getting, it’s like the ‘Mole Christmas Party’ is in full flow. With sodden, water logged fields - that have yet to freeze - moles can basically glide through the Earth with nothing to stop them.

The soft soil makes digging even easier for moles, and they’re sure to take full advantage. Food is in abundance, and the type of wet ground is the very kind they love. They’ll be indulging this Christmas too!

But you don’t have to let them. Don’t let those pesky moles ruin your Christmas and cause you any Bah Humbug moments! Call Mr. Mole Man today!

Mr. Mole Man could be the perfect Christmas gift to your home, your family, or just to yourself. No more moles, just a smiling Mr. Mole Man having brought joy to a family this holiday season.

To some in Telford and Shropshire, Mr. Mole Man is like Father Christmas himself.

Mole Caught in Grinshill in Shropshire

After clearing the moles from the boundary of this garden in Grinshill, they promptly appeared on the opposite fence line, where we set a further 4 mole traps. On checking these this week I was pleased to have removed one more mole, with more to be caught. 

Earlier in the year the tunnel trap was catching consistently, now at this time of year I tend to change tack setting fenn, tunnel and claw mole traps, with the breeding season coming to an end the juveniles are a bit more cautious.

The One Candidate You Should be Voting For

Election fever grips everyone you know

Even those in the quaint rural villages of Shropshire, the election causes a bit of a stir. 

After all, there are lots of rolling hills and luscious green countryside to protect. 

This year there's one candidate who you should be voting for. You won't find him on the normal ballot, because he puts all his energies and effort into one single issue. And it's an issue which is important to lots of people, from Shrewsbury to Telford and even further afield. 

The candidate is Mr. Mole Man. And he stands for one thing. Mole Catching. 

He believes in the beauty of nature.

He values nothing more than long hot summer evenings, gazing out across pristine gardens and glorious flowerbeds. 

And he's got just one manifesto point he wants to deal with. 

Unwanted moles. 

Mr Mole Man is one candidate you should be voting for if you want to have a lawn without a mole hill in sight. 

He's the one you should be marking your X next to if you want to look out at green fields and not see any ugly mole hills blocking the view. Or if you're concerned about making sure your paddocks are safe for both animals and humans alike, he's the man for you. 

His record is exemplary. 

The opposition simply cannot touch him, because he's committed 100% to ridding public gardens and farmers' fields of moles, leaving no job incomplete. 

Those who have already voted for him know how he keeps his promises. A cross for Mr. Mole Man and there won't be a single trace of a mole on your property. 

YES - He can get rid of moles for you. 

Better still, you don't even have to vote on Thursday. You can vote anytime you want. Simply pick up the phone and call 01743 241 706, or email

And remember, every vote counts!

I was called to this property in Chiilds Ercall, which was being invaded by moles on two boundaries. After a brief assessment of the mole activity, it was clearly two different moles, and on that basis I set  a number of mole traps in each infested area.

The result on checking the mole traps is one mole caught, which the owner is delighted with and looks forward to further success.

Moles, Moles - Everywhere You Look, There Are Moles!

And you thought we were exaggerating when we kept talking about dangerous mole infestations, didn’t you!?

Well new research shows that in the last year, the mole population in Shropshire and right across England has absolutely exploded. In the last 12 months, as this article shows, the number of moles burrowing across gardens, digging holes in lawns, and churning up farmland has more than doubled to a total of approximately 62 million!

That’s almost as many moles as there are people living in the UK! Or 350 moles per person living in Telford and Wrekin.

That’s a lot of moles.

Experts are claiming that this huge increase in the mole population is down to the mild winter we had last year, and the floods which followed along the River Thames. Contrary to popular belief, being a good swimmer is just one of the characteristics moles have, so the floods didn’t hinder the moles. In fact, the floods drove moles up to a higher grounds and allowed them to easily reproduce, as well as fertilising a huge stretch of flood plains and creating an abundance of food for all those new hungry mouths to feed on!

And we don’t really need to tell you about the consequences of a huge mole population do we?

It means dozens more more hills erupting over your pristine garden. Twisted ankles and broken legs, as gardeners and livestock stumble onto burrowed tunnels. Contamination of animal feed, and just generally ruined grass, lawns, flowerbeds, paddocks and farmland. A nightmare basically.

As the article in the Shropshire Star shows, there are lots of people right across Telford and Shrewsbury trying to figure out what to do to get rid of huge numbers of moles! We know from experience that the pesky little devils can be very difficult to catch and kill.

There are tales of smells, foods and noises which scare them off. Suggestions to flood their tunnels, or simply bash the hills and hit moles on the head at a certain time of day. But none of these really work. If you’ve ever had moles, you’ll know that.

You’ll know that what you really need is a proper mole catcher. Now more than ever. Before the mole population gets even bigger!

Mole catching might be a dying trade, but thankfully there are still a few expert mole catchers out there. People like Mr. Mole Man.  

Mr. Mole Man works tirelessly all around Shropshire to control the mole pests. He’ll come out and free your garden or farm from moles whenever you need him, any time at all. And he won’t stop until every last mole is gone from your property. He knows exactly how to catch moles, so that you don’t have to worry about it.

What are you waiting for? Give him a ring, and stop this mole explosion getting even worse!

Mole trapping in Condover

The owner of this large garden in Condover, Shropshire, was overwhelmed by the number of mole hills, and shallow mole tunnels that were gradually runining his pristine lawn. The problem with shallow runs is that they go relatively unseen until you look a little closer, lo and behold there is an entire network.

After a quick mole patrol to assess the extent of the mole problem, walking swiftly by the solar powered mole deterrent, I located the runs and set 5 traps, all were marked with flags to identify their location.

I am pleased to report that after checking the traps we have a 100% trapping record, with 5 moles caught over 2 visits to this property. The owner, a keen horticulturalist is delighted with the success and looks forward to reinstating his lawn. One trap has been left ensitu to make sure that the run on the lawn is free is of moles.

After a successful mole trapping session earlier this year the moles were back, obviously unaware that this customer has Mr Mole Man on speed dial. 

After a brief assessment of the grounds three claw mole traps were set, and on checking these today, I was pleased with one mole caught. 

The mole claw traps were reset and they will be checked again soon.

A large garden in Ruyton-XI-Towns which was beseiged by mole hills, thats when the owners called me in. The indications were that the moles were well established and really causing a mess with their constant subeterranean activity.

A number of claw mole traps were set, and suprisingly the depth of tunnels was quite deep which required a stronger trap to be set so that it went off correctly. On checking these the other day I was pleased to have caught one mole, and the traps were reset to ensure no moles were present in the system, despite there being no tell tale signs on the dead mole.
