What is a Mole Catcher?

A mole catcher is exactly that – it is someone who catches and/or kills moles. Mole catchers in Suffolk and Essex are in increasing demand as recent years have seen a rise in the number of these pests in Britain.

If moles inhabit your fields or garden, you will be aware of just how damaging these small creatures can be. A reputable local mole catcher, such as Essex and Suffolk Pest Solutions will put your mind at rest and mean your garden or business premises will soon be restored to its former glory.

Brief History of the Mole Catcher

The history of mole catchers goes back to ancient times. The Romans used earthenware pots to trap moles. These pots would be partly filled with water and buried in the mole runs to drown the mole.

In years gone by in Britain, the mole catcher enjoyed a good quality of life. They had their meals and accommodation provided for as they travelled to and from farms and country estates.

Mole catchers made their own traps with wood sticks, twigs and string and were paid for every mole they caught. They could even make extra cash on top of their fee by selling the moleskins on to fur dealers, or a plumber in the region who would use them to clean pipe joints.

Nowadays, a mole catcher, such as Essex and Suffolk Pest Solutions, uses a trap system as well as carefully regulated gas techniques to eliminate moles in the most humane way possible.

Why Use a Mole Catcher?

There are some pests that, no matter how attractive or lovely they look, it is vital to get rid of them because of the damage they cause.

Moles make elaborate tunnels that cause havoc to agricultural land and lawns. These tunnels can be very deep or on the surface, and damage the structure of the fields, creating a danger for cattle or horses.

In fact, the mole was said to have caused the death of King William III in the early part of the 18th century. The King broke his collar bone after he was thrown from his horse who stumbled on a molehill. He never recovered from his injury and died very shortly after the accident.

Mole catchers in Suffolk and Essex, and elsewhere in the country, are vital because these pests are difficult to bring under control. They are hard to eliminate because of the way they live (in underground passages which they rarely come out of) and they also have a highly developed sense of smell and hearing, so are able to sense traps. They are also quick to repopulate.

Whilst it is possible to catch moles using DIY products, these are not usually very effective. A professional mole catcher will know which traps to use, where to place them and what else needs to be done to capture the moles – providing a safe and humane removal. In some cases Phosphine gas may also be used.
