Why use a professional mole catcher?
Mole trapping & mole removal in Maidstone, Sittingbourne, Chatham, Gillingham and Rochester areas:
Although rarely seen themselves, moles (Talpa europaea) are well known for the damage they cause to lawns, sports grounds and farmland.
Invicta Pest Control are fully Lantra trained professional mole catchers. We practice the traditional and effective art of mole catching.
Just one mole can dig around 25 meters of fresh tunnels per day, quickly destroying lawns and damaging crops. Mole hills can damage machinery such as mowers and harvesters, and the shallow runs can collapse causing injuries to people and livestock. A mole hill creates the ideal conditions for weeds to germinate, and are also unsightly for businesses such as wedding venues and sports clubs.
We use humane, traditional trapping methods, which is far more environmentally friendly than gassing which kills everything in the tunnels and surrounding soil. Moles are hugely intelligent creatures who quickly block any runs that don’t feel right. Our expertise ensures we can effectively locate the best runs and set the traps in a way that won’t arouse suspicion. Sometimes moles are even caught whilst other traps are set around the site!
By having a thorough understanding of the mole’s biology, habitat and lifecycle, we can provide the best possible service. The European mole is a fascinating, unique creature that can move through its tunnels at around 4km per hour. It works and sleeps in alternating four hour shifts, feeding on worms and grubs, detected by vibration when they fall into the runs. Moles breed in February & March, producing around four young in each litter born in March & April. These leave the nest at seven weeks, and go in search of their own territory or take up abandoned runs. Only around 50% of these infant moles will survive, but activity notably increases around this time. Worms are either eaten straight away, or have their heads bitten off and are then stored, paralysed, in a worm larder for up to two months. Moles need to eat around 20 worms per day, storing them gives them a supply through lean times and increases their chance of survival.
We are expert mole catchers, trained and qualified to BPCA/RSPH & Lantra standards. Our clients range from those with a single mole in a domestic lawn to local football and sports clubs. Most moles are caught within 48 hours, and as with any pest, it is better to call us as soon as you notice their presence.
Using various trapping methods, including hidden traps for public or vulnerable sites, we can quickly eradicate your mole problem.
Please don’t be tempted to try and trap the mole yourself, or use repellants, this will normally just spook the mole, making it much more wary of traps and possibly more expensive to catch.
