Perfect conditions for moles this year have led to a mole population explosion and many people have experienced the effects of a mole in their garden for the first time.

Grass verges, lawns, flower borders and gardens are all falling victim to this industrious little creature that can cause so much grief, damage and expense. It is not just in rural locations that damage has been done, but in urban areas as well, as moles are popping up in previously unknown territories for them.Molehills - No-Nonsense pest control

Moles can dig up to 20 metres of underground tunnels a day each, leaving a wake of molehills in once flat ground or lawns. The tunnels can be of varying depths depending on local circumstances and food quantities available. Within the tunnel system there will be chambers lined with grass for resting or breeding.

The main source of food for the mole is earthworms, but other insects and invertebrates and also snakes and lizards will appear on their menu, the tunnels providing a huge larder that the moles regularly patrol.

Wherever the soil is deep enough to dig in, moles will inhabit, including farmland, wooded areas, grassland and of course domestic gardens. They do not eat plants but there constant tunnelling will disturb plants and shrubs causing damage.

Mole control by No-Nonsense Pest ControlMoles can grow to about 6 inches long and normally have thick black fur are very rarely seen above ground, they have large front paws adapted for digging and are surprisingly agile underground being able to move at speed in their tunnels.

Breeding normally takes place in the spring to early summer after which they tend to be solitary creatures that defend their respective territories. Moles do not hibernate.

There are various methods of mole control or capture available on the market including electronic devices and repellents. On many occasions, I have seen all sorts of methods employed including prickly plants, small windmills and even empty wine bottles planted in the soil!

Needless to say, if you have a mole problem, then it is always advisable to call in professional help to get rid of the problem. Do not leave it too long before acting as damage can quickly occur and many molehills will appear.
