Moles can cause trouble all year round, but right now we are in the middle of the main breeding season for moles. During the breeding season (March to May) mole activity is at its peak. Male moles will search for females, burrowing up to 100 metres a night and causing a variety of problems, including:
- Livestock can be injured when they tread on and fall down mole hills and holes.
- Land damage, from hills and subsidence when tunnels give way.
- The amount of available grazing grass can be significantly reduced by mole hills.
- If soil accidentally gets into the hay crop, next year’s feed could carry soil borne diseases.
If left untreated, you can only expect these issues to increase as they’ll continue making a nuisance until controlled.
Need help with agricultural mole control?
At Helliar Pest Control, we have over 25 years’ experience getting rid of moles.
Safeguarding the health and welfare of stock, wildlife and people is always our primary concern. We have found the quickest, safest and most humane way of controlling moles is to use traps. Trapping moles ensures that no other animals are injured when they accidentally eat a poisoned pest, and we’ve also found it much more effective than methods such as repellents, which just move moles to another part of the land.
To get rid of moles quickly, get in touch. We also offer proactive pest control plans and routine visits to help keep pests such as moles at bay before they cause a problem.
