Mendip Moles go Mad

When the recent snow and frost thawed out lots of people locally found that Mr Mole had been hard at work under the insulating blanket of snow. Calls came thick and fast from irate gardeners, farmers, sports field owners and the like, all with "mole issues."
Mendip Moles SomersetLabour of Mendip Moles The prolonged wet summer last year appears to have been good for the mole population and I think many more young moles than in a dry summer have made it to adulthood. This means that almost every field across the Mendips are currently covered in mounds of excavated earth and criss crossed with mazes of tunnels.
Given the right conditions, it is possible for a single mole to tunnel 100 yards in 24 hrs and I recently read in a pest publication that during hard winter conditions a mole needs a network of 200 yards of tunnels to find enough food to sustain itself. The mole's diet consists of earthworms, grubs and other crawly wigs which fall into the network of tunnels which the mole greedily snaffles up on its never ending hunt for food. I recently trapped several areas of farmland, just after the severe frosts, there were good numbers of moles in these pastures and in all areas I had moles caught in traps which had a second mole come along the tunnel behind it and eat its dead counterpart's hind quarters....... I wonder what mole burgers or maybe mole kebabs might be like.

There were lots of moles active during the colder winter months, in fact we had a waiting list of mole work. Its gone a bit quiet with moles for now but still getting several new jobs a week - hopefully they had a good breeding season & there will be plenty for this winter. Danny
