'Perfect Conditions' Lead to UK Mole Invasion

Tuesday, November 04, 2014

Homeowners and farmers have to deal with mole issues every autumn. However, this year, things are demonstrably worse. A combination of perfect weather conditions this past spring and summer have led to what some are calling an invasion of the pests. One estimate suggests the total number of moles now inhabiting gardens and farmlands has doubled to some 62 million this year. That is a lot of animals causing a lot of damage.

Moles are difficult pests because they are prolific, hard to catch and highly destructive. Moreover, simply catching and relocating the animals will not do any good. They have to be terminated properly in order for an invasion to be controlled. That is where Pest Control Services of Berkshire come in.

For 20 years, we have been providing reliable mole catching and termination in Newbury, Berkshire, and parts of Wiltshire and Hampshire. We have developed a reputation as being THE mole catcher due to our persistence and resolve. We have the tools and experience to catch moles quickly and terminate them humanely.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

In addition to the wet spring and balmy summer, there is another factor contributing to the mole invasion we are now seeing. It is the principle of 'out of sight, out of mind'. In other words, moles are burrowing creatures that live in extensive tunnelling systems underground. A property could be completely infested even though the owner sees only one or two of the rodents wandering around the garden. However, where there are one or two, there can be more.

The key to mole control is understanding their habits. Knowing how they operate enables the skilled pest control technician to catch the rodents so they can be effectively terminated. Nevertheless, understand that controlling these animals requires more than just a single one-off treatment. It requires a diligence in paying attention to the presence of these animals on your property.

To that end, PCS offers both mole treatment and instructional courses that teach property owners and maintenance providers how to control the animals on their own. A comprehensive control programme practised year-round is the best way to ensure moles are kept at bay.

If you have seen moles on your property, do not hesitate to call us right away. We will respond with same-day service. Pest Control Services proudly serves Berkshire by providing comprehensive pest control for every kind of pest.
