Why do moles need to be controlled?
What can you do about moles?
There is very little that can be done in the long term to prevent moles from entering an area as they easily move from adjacent properties. Many methods such as creating smells or vibrations in their tunnels have little proof to show that they actually work.
The majority of mole control is done using a variety of traps, from barrel and scissor traps to the highly effective Talpex style trap. Alternatively, they can be fumigated with the gassing compound, aluminium phosphide.
