In rural areas especially, moles can cause extensive damage to your garden/land by tunnelling through the soil. With heavy infestations, the ground can become unstable and holes may appear not only damaging foundations but also creating safety risks.
Moles tunnel using their large two front paws to scrape away the earth and feel along tunnels with their snouts and whiskers. Because of the absence of light within their living conditions, moles have very poor eyesight so very rarely will you see mole activity above ground.
Problems that can be caused by moles include
- Deterioration of turfed areas such as golfing greens and fairways, cricket pitches, sports fields and formal lawns which can be costly to repair.
- Damage to expensive farm machinery such as mowing machines and harvesting equipment from debris brought up from sub-soil by the burrowing moles.
Professional pest control is needed to obtain control of these pests. Enviroguard gas the tunnels with Aluminium Phosphate which provides a quick control method and is cost effective.
