Halloween is the time for ghosts, ghouls and other scary monsters! As the days grow shorter and the nights grow longer, strange things can be heard or seen that may send a tingle down the spine! Not everything may be an apparition, some things will be real and could have a scary and possibly, an expensive result. As the temperatures drop, rodents and insects will be looking for warm, secure lodging and properties are the obvious choice, with many at risk from invasion. Now is the time to check for any defects in buildings, fill any holes or cracks, replace missing tiles or seal holes around...

The latin name is Talpa europaea and they are mammals. The male mole is referred to as a “boar”, the female is a “sow” and a group is called a “labour”. Moles are capable of digging through up to 15 metres of soil an hour! Most of a moles’ life is spent underground. The first signs of mole activity or mole digging are molehills, which is the excavated soil from their tunnels. The mole has poor eyesight and no ears, relying on extreme senses of smell and touch. Moles are carnivores. The saliva of a mole can paralyze worms! Continuous tunnelling by moles can undermine plant roots causing...

If someone asks you if you have ever seen a mole, the answer would most likely be no! If asked the same question about molehills, then the answer would probably be a resounding yes! Many gardeners fear finding these tell-tale signs of mole activity as it can only mean that damage and distress will follow. Molehills are caused by a mole, or moles, digging feeding tunnels to catch food. The digging of these tunnels can affect many areas including gardens, lawns, flower beds, vegetable plots and surrounding areas damaging roots and plants in the process. The mole activity can last all year...

The trees are changing in colour and the temperatures are starting to fall, autumn is here! As the leaves fall and the outside environment changes, many animals will be changing their respective routines to prepare for the on-coming colder period. Birds that have not migrated will be looking to establish safe and warm roosting areas and if any properties have the necessary defects, they will quickly become home. Rodents are already taking advantage of properties in many areas, with mice and rats having moved in and set up ever growing colonies. Squirrels are masters of invasion, managing to...

Vermin -“Wild animals which are believed to be harmful to crops, farm animals, or game, or which carry disease, e.g. rodents.” Origin: Middle English (originally denoting animals such as reptiles and snakes): from Old French, based on Latin vermis ‘worm’. There is a lot of talk about vermin or vermin control and it usually refers to rodents, rats, mice, birds including pigeons and sometimes foxes. It normally means that a certain animal has become a pest and needs to be killed or removed. No animals or birds are actually classified as vermin and what one person may consider to be vermin may...

What a summer! The weather has been very hot to say the least and many people have enjoyed the sun and reaped its benefits. Nature has had to adapt to the very dry conditions to preserve valuable moisture, none more so than the mole. A very hard-working animal that few have ever seen, but its results are everywhere – MOLEHILLS! As the ground dried out, these industrious creatures were forced to new areas to feed on their primary source of food, worms. Molehills started to appear everywhere very soon in the season as the heatwave took hold and the ground became parched. It is generally...
