Talkback: Moles

Posted: 18/02/2013 at 17:03
Out of date information given about gassing.

Gassing can't be carried out within 10 meters of any building; that effectively means most gardens.

Gassing is also not very effective and quite expensive compared to getting a molecatcher in.

To find a local molecatcher, visit this site:

Sonic repellers do not work; even the government admitted that there is no evidence of them working when they looked into the mole problem in 2006.

Putting foreign substances (creosote, moth balls etc) down the runs will not work either, and apart from the fact that it's illegal, will kill off many beneficial organisms.

Trapping is the only sure fire way of getting rid of moles, and a decent molecatcher will have a 'no mole, no fee' policy, so it's quite cost effective.
