With the better weather and lack of rain, more time can be spent in our gardens admiring plants and wildlife. The same can be said for moles! Their main purpose is to search for food by digging multiple tunnels which can satisfy this need. Basic garden maintenance can encourage moles into our gardens, freshly dug soil, mown grass and newly laid turf can all stimulate worm and insect activity, which in turn can provide fresh feeding areas for moles in certain areas. Watering of a garden during dry spells is a definite attraction. Although plants are not on the menu for moles, their constant...

The mole population across the UK certainly seems to have increased at a vast rate this year! It may be because of wet and warmer winters and generally more rain producing better conditions for worms, the prime food for moles. Moles are built to dig. Their body shape and very powerful front claws are ideal for shifting large amounts of soil in a short space of time. A technique similar to swimming is used to construct feeding tunnels, which in turn can create ridges or molehills. These can seriously affect a lawn, garden, paddock, flower bed or vegetable patch, to name but a few. The tunnels...

Summer is here! It must be as the summer migrant birds have arrived, the Swallow, Swift, Nightjar and even the Cuckoo. Oh yes and even the rain, without which our lawns and gardens would not grow. Especially in Dorset, now is the time to enjoy the outdoors with longer warmer evenings, maybe a spot of gardening, a walk along the beach at Bournemouth, Christchurch or Poole or just sat on the patio or decking at home. But wait a minute, what is that pile of earth in the lawn? What is that unusual ridge in the flower border? Why has my lawn become uneven? Why are some of my plants showing...

Mention a molehill to a serious gardener or someone that really loves their beautiful, lush green lawn and no doubt, you will see a flicker of fear appear! It is the thought of hours of work and loving tendering, being wiped out in minutes by a small furry animal that is seldom seen, but the damage certainly is. At one time, strychnine, a powerful poison was used to kill off moles, but this was rightfully banned in 2006 as non- target species, such as birds and other animals were being killed as well. Various methods are often employed to rid an area of moles and these can include: Putting...

At one time, mole skins were used to make waistcoats, trousers, hats and even coats. It would take over  100 moleskins to complete a waistcoat! In some parts of the country a molehill is known as a “wontyhump”. It is claimed that the average mole can move around ten pounds of soil in approximately twenty minutes. If needed, a mole can excavate around eighteen to twenty metres of tunnels a day, depending on the soil! The word “mole” could be derived from the word “moldwarp” which literally means earth thrower! A mole does have eyes, but they are very small and protected by fur and instead...
