Professional Cheadle Mole Trapping and Control Services

Any sign of moles in your compound should always be taken seriously. Moles can destroy both commercial and residential lawns. They belong in an underground family that burrows and feeds on earthworms. Cheadle mole trapping and control is a difficult task to handle on your own due to the fact that they live underground.

Understanding Moles

Mole in a molehillEven though some people believe that moles are blind, they are actually not. It is just that their tinny eyes are covered with thick skin. To compensate this, these underground rodents use their tail balance and sense of smell to navigate around and hunt for prey.

Moles can be easily confused with gophers, voles or shrews. This is the more reason why you need professional mole pest control. Otherwise, your Cheadle mole trapping endeavours will yield no result as you may be targeting the wrong rodents. So, how do you distinguish a mole from other look-alike rodents? Well, they have a distinctively protruding naked nose and their eyes are masked in fur. A mole’s feet look like a spade but it has powerful claws.

These rodents are surprisingly wider than their length (which is between 5-12 inches long). The tail is also another simple feature for identifying a mole. It has no fur and it’s surprisingly pink in colour. When it comes to food, the rodents feed predominately on insects (e.g. earthworms). However, they sometimes feed on plants and even smaller mice. Their strong sense of smell can lead them to their prey with great precision.

Types of Moles

Effective mole control must also take into consideration the various types there are. For example, there are about five types of moles with different habitats and adaptation:

• Broad-footed Mole - Active during the rains and prefer moist soils. These moles are vicious and often survive mole trapping, more so those set without a professional.
• Star-Nosed Mole - Rarely digs tunnels and prefers marshy environments. Star-nosed moles are also good swimmers and hunt their prey in water.

Talpa europaea or common mole is the one that is mostly found in the UK.
