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...

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...

The weather may be damp, cold, wet or warm, it does not matter to the mole, everywhere you look at the moment there is evidence that the mole has already been there! There has been a population explosion again with more to come and more and more areas are falling victim to this industrious creature causing damage, grief and possible expense. Molehills can be found just about anywhere, from grass roadside verges, paddocks, playing fields, golf courses, gardens, fields and even on roundabouts on busy roads. In towns including Ferndown, West Moors, Verwood, Christchurch and in the centre of...

RATS AGAIN!

They just keep coming! It seems many rodents, including mice and rats, are desperate to enjoy the dry and warm interiors of properties and are employing all sorts of methods to gain entry, not only from ground level, but higher up as well. Rats and mice are very good at climbing and can jump as well, so with enough help and cover from foliage, trees, shrubs and bushes, gaining height is not a problem. Once inside a property, access is quickly gained to cavities, floor voids, roof spaces, lofts and any other suitable areas for nesting. As well as being extremely agile, rats can dig very well...

MOLE IN A HOLE!

The better weather encourages us to spend more time outside in the fresh air enjoying our respective gardens. Moles feel this way too, although with a different way of enjoying the food that our gardens produce! It is the insects, worms and other foods that are in our gardens that the moles are searching for with their endless tunnelling. Freshly dug ground and mown grass stimulate worms and insect activity providing new larders for the moles to harvest. This is done through a network of mole tunnels that the food drops into and is quickly eaten. Plants are not a target or food source, but...
