Is it Time to Call Out the Plymouth Mole Catcher?

Many of us are lucky enough to not suffer at the hands of miles in our gardens, considering them to be cute little creatures that live in fields. For those that are unfortunate enough to have these nocturnal visitors, they can be a real pain destroying grass, plants, flower beds and farmers crops. That is why it is important to call on the services of an effective and reliable Plymouth mole catcher if you do have a problem with nuisance moles. 

What do we know about moles?

Moles usually come out in late winter or early spring so it is not unusual to see them at this time of the year (January, February time). The first sign of these creatures are small mounds of earth appearing in the middle of your perfectly flat gardens or fields. These mounds appear as the mole digs a series of underground chambers and despots the discarded earth on the surface. It is rare to actually get sight of a mole, instead you will wake to fresh mounds of neatly deposited dirt in your garden or on your land. 

They don’t eat the vegetation but they destroy it

The problem is not the fact that they eat the vegetation but the fact that they destroy while furrowing for food and digging their homes. In fact, moles are insectivores surviving on a diet of worms, spiders, grubs and snails. It is the destruction they cause to your beautifully kept lawn or your stunning flowerbeds that is the problem. 

The mounds aren’t the only problem

While digging, the mole can cause much damage to the land. It can uproot plants and flowers, vegetables and fruits and kill the grass. In addition to this, the network of tunnels that they dig below the surface can make the ground weak and uneven causing people to trip and sprain their ankles or worse.

It is usually just one mole

While the ground can look like an army of moles went to work overnight, moles are actually territorial creatures preferring to work alone. Those mole hills that you see are often caused by just one animal. This is less of an issue as it is far easier to contain the problem and catch just one mole. But for our fearless and experience Plymouth mole catcher, nothing is a problem. 

Call out our expert Plymouth mole catcher. 

Don’t be tempted to just hope the problem goes away or even to try and resolve the problem yourself. If your garden or land is attractive to one mole and she is a female, during the nesting season (Feb – June) she could have 3 or 4 young – more moles to enjoy digging up your land.

I was extremely pleased with Falcon Environmental Services. They were efficient, reliable, friendly and professional. I was happy that I found a local company to help with the problem of pests in my attic. They were always available to talk to explaining the situation to me and how they were going to deal with it. I really felt that they went over, above and beyond what I expected. Nothing was too much trouble, my calls and enquiries always returned with a friendly voice, care and consideration. I would honestly recommend them and use their company again if the need arises. It’s very comforting to find good, reliable professional people you can rely on. Thank you to everyone at FALCON.
