Moles cause most damage with their mole hills which are unsightly on amenity and sporting grasslands, they cause uneven surfaces and deterioration of the sward by providing a seed bed for weeds. The molehills can also damage mowing machinery for obvious reasons and are unwelcome on expensive turf for golf and bowling greens. In agriculture, if the soil from molehills gets in to silage grass it can result in unpalatable silage and is a possible source of Listeriosis in sheep fed on silage. Damage can occur to arable crops and gardens when moles burrow under seedlings and plants causing wilting and death.
The breeding season is from February to June when there is usually one litter. After a 4 week gestation period the young are born blind and without fur. After 5 weeks they will leave the nest.Signs of Presence:
- Molehills: is the most common sign of the presence of moles. These are heaps of soil that the mole as excavated from their tunnelling system.
- Fortress: this is a large mound of soil where the mole makes a nest for breeding or sleeping, this is a lot larger then a normal molehill.
- Surface runs: These are shallow tunnels were the soil is pushed up to form a ridge on the surface of the ground.
- Trapping: in the right conditions we can use a verity of approved traps e.g. Duffus, Tunnel mole traps. only use trapping methods as we consider it more humane.
