The Threat They Can Pose

Moles themselves do not pose a significant health risk. However, mole hills are an appalling sight to behold; destroying gardens, bowling greens and other sports grounds as well as fairways and greens on golf courses. Large unsightly trails and mounds of shovelled up earth is the main indicator that you have a problem that needs dealt with fast. The fact that a single mole can tunnel up to four meters per hour – and that they are constantly digging while on the move – is an alarming reality and before long you won’t have any undamaged land left to try and save. Therefore, it is vital that you get in touch with us as soon as you spot the signs of these pests

Mole tunnels make ground unstable and present a risk to farm animals such as cows and horses getting their legs and hoofs caught down one while in motion, which in turn could lead to all sorts of complications for the farm animal and prove costly for the owner. Mole tunnels also spoil flowers, vegetation and damage the roots of young plants and trees, leading to complications for other forms of nature which depend on all this for food and shelter. Molehills and their trails can also throw up stones and rocks which can damage agricultural machinery and equipment, causing a high cost to gardeners, farmers and businesses which depend on their grass and land for income and revenue. The majority of a moles diet consists of earth worms so they are likely to inhabiting grounds that are rich with insects and worms.
