Mole Control in Swindon & Wiltshire
How Do You Know if You Have Moles?
Very rarely seen above ground, Moles are a common pest in the UK and they leave a trail of destruction behind them. They are voracious insectivores who have to constantly dig to satisfy their need for earthworms and insects. Using a particularly keen sense of touch and sensitivity to vibration the mole is able to track its prey hiding in the soil. If you have moles, it is easy to spot; however locating the mole is a different matter entirely. At Mission Pest Control we offer specialist Mole Control in Swindon and the surrounding areas. We are experts in their removal from gardens, sports grounds, farms and golf courses.
Damage Caused by Moles
As well as causing unsightly mole hills a collapsed mole tunnel can also endanger livestock e.g. a horse breaking a fetlock. Mole tunnels also spoil flowers, vegetation and damage the roots of young plants and trees, leading to complications for other forms of nature which depend on all this for food and shelter.
Molehills and their trails can also throw up stones and rocks which can damage agricultural machinery and equipment, causing a high cost to gardeners, farmers and businesses which depend on their grass and land for income and revenue. The majority of a moles diet consists of earth worms so they are likely to inhabiting grounds that are rich with insects and worms.
