Moles

Postby CraftsbyCarolyn » Sat Feb 06, 2016 1:11 pm

Our garden is starting to look like WW1, I assume that we must have more than one mole, any suggestions on how to get rid of them. I am not certain I am man enough to put traps down, not even sure where I would best place them I guess.

There seems to be a lot around these parts, the soil must be to their liking.

I get one in my garden occasionally and I must admit that the only effective answer I have found is a mole trap.

I hate killing them, but a single mole can cause havoc in a day.

I think I have no alternative, as I won't have any garden left at this rate :( Like you not so keen on killing them.

I have had a man round following a recommend from here....traps are down and he will be back later in the week....

Aww feel - but he offered me no alternative.

I note that the local black and white cat is eating birds a lot on my garden and also constantly chasing the squirrel up the tree didnt seem to be able to make any headway!

one mole has been caught and now buried in the garden..so hopefully normality will be restored back on the garden. Can definitely recommend Ivan.
