MOLES  
Moles are active throughout the day and night, usually feeding every 4 hours or so with periods of sleep in between. They live quite a solitary life for most of the year until the spring when they mate and produce a litter of 3-5 young. Breeding is from February to June. The young leave the nest at about 5 weeks of age. They feed on worms in the main but also eat grubs and other things found in the soil. An adult mole may eat up to 200 worms per day. The only effective and legal from of control are trapping or gassing. People often say that Moles are difficult to catch. This is not so if you know the way the mole lives, have the right equipment and technique then it becomes relatively easy. Sonic repellers are expensive and rarely move the mole from a good feeding place. They work best at placing a barrier between where the moles are and where you don't want them to go. The mole on your lawn needs to be caught then the repellers may work at preventing another coming in. Traps need to be conditioned before use. Don't expect to purchase a mole trap and catch a mole. There is much more to it than that with the traps sold needing work done to them to make them effective. Most people trying to catch them make it more difficult for the professional as the traps condition the mole to go around anything metal in the ground because those traps used have not worked for one reason or another. Please leave mole catching to those of us experienced in it. We are effective and reasonable in our pricing.
