FAQ – Kent mole catcher

Q. How much notice do you require before booking a site visit?

A. Depending on how busy I am , I can usually make a site visit within 24hrs of receiving an enquiry.

Q. Are moles active all year round?

A. Yes, although early-late spring sees an increase in activity due to the mating season.

Q. Is trapping the only method of deterring moles?

A. It is the only legal and effective way of dealing with a mole problem. Other, non-lethal options are available but unfortunately are not effective.

Q. Do you guarantee to solve my mole issue?

A. I work on a ‘no mole, no fee’ basis – that is to say that should I not successfully dispatch the mole(s) you will not pay a penny. However, I am confident that I can solve your mole problem – no matter how tricky. I will continue to make visits until we have a satisfactory conclusion.

Q. I have lots of molehills, how many moles do I have?

A. I am asked this question more than any other. Moles are solitary (aside from the mating season) and one mole can dominate over 1 sq. acre. However, each territory overlaps with another. This allows for constant redistribution of land when one mole is either caught or naturally expires. 

Q. I have a long line of molehills which have appeared in spring. Does this mean a mole has moved into my garden?

A. Not necessarily. This is likely to be a male leaving his nest in search of a mate. If so, then damage will be limited. The best advice would be to clear the soil that has been pushed to the surface and remain vigilant. Chances are you won’t have any further trouble however, if molehills appear outside of the line and/or it continues for more than a month then you will need to contact a mole control expert.
