Golf course greenkeepers wage a constant war against pests, which can quickly destroy years of hard work. For this reason, we recommend a proactive approach to pest control for golf clubs, which must always be pristine for players.
Although this might seem like yet another expense, this approach will almost certainly save money in the long run, as getting rid of pests once an infestation has taken hold can be long-winded, and in some cases would require the closure of the club, leading to loss of revenue.
Moles can burrow up to 100 metres a night, so they can quickly wreck havoc on a previously immaculate green.
Our approach is to use traps to humanely and quickly get rid of moles before they can ruin the course.
Birds can cause damage by rooting for food and eating newly sown grass seed. Birds can be tricky to control but we have a wealth of experience in bird control to draw on.
Burrowing by rabbits can damage both the course and young trees. We use a variety of methods for controlling rabbits, including ferreting, long nets, and shooting, depending on the time of year.
Rodents can do all sorts of damage if allowed to thrive in or around the club house. As well as giving a bad impression of the course, they can spread diseases and even cause fires by gnawing through wires.
