Mole Control


Public Awareness

Moles are abundant throughout Britain though are commonly found in domestic or commercial rural environments and occasionally grassed suburban environments. They can be found and reside wherever the soil is suitable for borrowing tunnels which is a number of grassland areas owned by people or business and predominantly feed on earthworms though will feed on other earth related insects..

Moles are considered to be a pest due to the damage they cause to occupant owned grasslands leaving subsidence due to their traversing. The soils/earths they manoeuver through can also contaminate livestock feed if it gets into the silage which is caused by a bacteria known as listeria resulting in fatalities of livestock third party contamination to humans resulting in sickness. Their presence can also result in damage to equipment and major financial loss if you depend on the grassland or livestock to generate income if not destroying pastures and lawns considered to be the pride and joy of your home.

Personal Preventative Measures

How to get rid of Moles!

A Mole infestation can be extremely difficult to DIY due to their ability to borrow and tunnel beneath the ground. Unfortunately moles are a unique type of pest in terms of habitual behaviour and the likeliness of self resolve is pretty low and the best course of action to take would be to contact Steel Guard Pest Control for a survey and preventative programme to be carried out. Alternatively, there is an exceptional preventative measure that can be carried out by occupants to reduce their activity if not get rid of them before or whilst treatment is in progress which is listed below:

  • Instal an Underground Parameter (approximately 2-3 foot deep) made of wire mesh with openings of 1 inches or less around your pasture or garden area to prevent the possibility of burrowing/tunnelling occurring.
