Cold Weather Pest Control

Moles are active during frosty weather - but traps can freeze solid. Mendip Mole, humanely trapped by Barron Pest Control.Write your post here.
 The colder weather of the past week or so has influenced what can or can't be done in the way of pest control. The severe frosts have made mole trapping next to impossible with the mechanisms on my preferred 1/2 barrel traps being frozen solid and the moles not triggering the traps, however I  did take a particularly "tricky" mole  from a client's garden today which fell to a "talpex" trap after eluding capture for nearly a fortnight - very satisfying.
 The frosty weather is continuing to drive rats and mice indoors and I've had several calls this week to deal with nocturnal "noises in the loft."
Bright winter days bring out squirrels - like these caught by Barron Pest Control in a garden in Bath On the dry, cold days squirrels are active. Contrary to popular belief they do not hibernate but they are susceptible to cold, damp conditions. When its wet and windy they'll be tucked up in the warm in their dreys but dry sunny days see them out foraging for the nuts they stashed in the autumn. As with rabbits taking out any breeding stock at this time of year will save having to deal with whole families of young and adolescent pests later in the year.
Rabbits tend to bolt more freely on frosty mornings - like these taken by Barron Pest Control from Somerset farmland. Frosty mornings have always been considered best for ferreting operations, the rabbits usually bolt more freely than in wet or windy conditions saving problems associated with the ferrets killing their rabbits and lying up.
 Even though the temperatures have plummetted lately at night I was attacked in a loft the other day by an angry queen wasp, who buzzed angrily round my face, attracted to the light on my head torch - a sure sign that spring is just around the corner.
