You can buy traps quite cheaply and use them your self once caaught pop the mole down the hole you caught it ,DEAD OF COURSE,its decaying body will keep away others for months works for me
I was quoted £70 per mole from a mole catcher!!!!!!!!!!!
Then of course, by tomorrow another could come back. We have a trap, my dad gets it in the exact right spot and the next day its caught.
My mole(s) don't seem to mind red hot chilli pepper ... Nor do they mind the Defenders castor oil pellets.
At the moment, I'm opening up tunnels and filling them in, and because I'm working in the room overlooking the area they've invaded, as soon as I see a new heap, I go out and fill it in.
So far, there seems to be a three day lead time between this and a new mole hill, and while I'm not sure why, I'm known for my stubborn streak and willl keep at it till I'm up to lifting the huge slabs where most of the activity seems to be concentrated and getting them re-laid. Quite what I'll do if I find the nest is under there, I don't know...
I think I'll keep my moles.
I'd like to keep mine, but that area of grass (I can no longer call it 'lawn') is unsafe to walk on because of the mining by the moles and the paving is now so uneven that some of the slabs (and they are huge!) slope at about 20 degrees.
You must have got some mega moles there Barney
