Busy times mole catching.

Write your post here.
 
Moles taken locally from farmland near Bath Since the weather warmed up the moles have been active. This is the time of the year when the females come into season and the males are out and about looking for love. Clients will ring complaining that they have molehills in their gardens etc. and that they've never had them before as the male moles are persistant chaps and will burrow under walls, fences, hedges etc in their hunt for a mate, sometimes tunneling up to 100 yards in a 24 hour period.
 I have been catching plenty of moles recently not only on local farmland but a pub beer garden, local sports fields, a graveyard, school playing fields, private gardens and stables to name but a few. Farmers don't like moles in fields for silage because the soil from the molehills can contaminate the silage when in storage and when the cattle eat it they can get food poisoning. Moles can't be tolerated in a sports field as the tunnels and hills make the playing surface dangerous, as anyone who has twisted an ankle will agree. Moles in equestrian fields aren't usually tolerated either as thetunnels and hills can cause horses to stumble and fall - indeed the death of William III was attributed to a mole after the King died from injuries sustained after falling from his horse in the grounds of Hampton Court in 1702.
Talpex trap on left, Duffus trap on right, Trapline trap in front, Mendip moles - middle. My preferred traps are the "Duffus" or "Half Barrel" type, when these traps are set there is nothing visible above the ground, unlike the "scissor" type whose handles stick up above the ground and seem to go "walkabout" if set in areas with public access. Another advantage of the Duffus type is that they can catch a mole at both ends, especially at this time of year when the moles are on the move ..... you get two for the price of one! Another trap I use frequently, mainly for "tricky" moles that have been made trap shy, often clients attempting to trap the moles themselves, is the "Talpex" trap which has avery strong spring and can be set in either shallow or deep runs. Another  trap I use quite regularly is the "Trapline" which is a smaller trap, very usefulfor under large tree roots and next to garden paths and patios.

 With the use of strychnine banned in 2006 for the poisoning of moles and the use of gassing tablets having ever more restrictions placed on it, the future for "Traditional Mole Catching" looks to be quite rosy, as its enviromentally friendly and, in my opinion, the most humane way available of controlling mole numbers.

Oh those poor moles! People sometimes say that I look like a mole-thank goodness I'm not a real one! You seem to be very good at what you are doing though and I will be sure to get in contact if I ever meet one of these creatures. Keep up the good work!

Interesting post because Humans and most other mammals can see and hear in stereo, but now it's known that a ubiquitous garden critter can smell in stereo too. The super smeller is the common mole, according to a paper in the journal Nature Communications.
