“Is there anything I can do to try and deter the moles?”
There are a few ‘old wives tales’ about how you can deter moles:
- Putting glass or unpleasant smelling moth balls into the mole runs.
- Placing electric pulse tubes in the soil with the hope that the vibrations will move the moles on.
- Cutting bottles in half and placing them cap end in the ground so the noise from the wind over the bottle will keep the moles at a distance.
- Planting certain types of shrubs, such as alliums and caper surge
Unfortunately there is no scientific credibility whatsoever behind these treatments and often, they will do more harm than good, making it harder to remove the moles.
The fact is, if your ground has lots of earthworms and grubs, there is little you can do to deter them. Professional trapping is the only reliable solution to treat an unwanted mole problem.
“How quickly can you get out to me?”
We aim to respond to mole call outs within 48 hours, but if we are particularly busy it can be within 3-4 days. The weather also plays a role in when we can schedule a visit, if it’s particularly wet or the ground is frozen then treatment may be held back.

Moles can turn your lawn and garden areas into an unsightly mess in next to no time. You can go to bed one evening and wake up the next morning with a miniature mountain range on your lawn! Moles cause damage to plants roots and turf by excavating the soil away and causing shallow collapses in the ground. This is why keeping moles under control is essential in paddocks with livestock in, especially horses.
Moles are solitary creatures most of the year round, apart from their breeding season which is from February to June. They have 1 litter per year with 3-4 young.
They rarely come above ground, but evidence of activity from a solitary mole can spread far and wide as a mole tunnel system can cover 100 – 1000 square meters.
Moles create extensive networks of permanent tunnels and feeding tunnels, so that’s when you’re most likely to notice the effects of moles on your property.
How to identify if you have an active mole infestation
- Small to large mounds of soil appear on turfed areas or in flower borders.
- Small sized holes 2-3 inches appear in lawn areas or flower borders.
- Depressions in the ground which are felt underfoot, or raised areas about 2-4 inches in width, with sporadic patterns.
