Professional Atherton Mole Trapping to Rid your Garden of Moles

Mole moundMany people take pride in the grounds around their property and will look to create an attractive appearance using lawns and flower beds. However, if moles take up residence, this attractive appearance can quickly be ruined. These pests can do a lot of damage as they go about their daily business, and mole control by a professional trapper is the best way to get rid of them. Young’s Pest Control has workers available that are trained for the job of Atherton mole trapping, and our assistance can help get your garden looking back to its best again.

Mole Basics

The common European mole can also be known as the garden mole. It is a solitary creature and, apart from mating time, will spend much of the year on its own. They typically grow to around 15cm in length and are recognisable for the velvety appearance of their fur and the palm-like front feet that are well adapted for digging. When they move into an area, they will create a network of tunnels for travelling around and feeding, and if Atherton mole trapping and control are not put in place, this can grow to cover large areas.

Mole Signs

  • Molehills: these are mounds of earth pushed to the surface as tunnels are dug.
  • Distinctive Ridges: these are signs of tunnels that lie just below the surface of the ground.
  • Plant Damage: the tunnelling of moles can damage the roots of plants and flowers. This can lead to poor growth or plants dying.
