Mole Information

The common garden mole will typically grow to around 15cm long as an adult, is usually slate-grey to brown in colour, and has front feet adapted for digging to suit its underground lifestyle. Moles will typically claim an area of ground for their territory and remain solitary apart from seeking out a mate during the breeding season. They will continually tunnel to extend their territory, with this including a deeper burrow system for moving around and feeding tunnels closer to the surface. This digging activity is what causes the problems, with Manchester mole trapping the only real way to stop it.

Signs to Look Out For

Molehills are the most evident sign, with moles capable of creating up to six of these in a 24 hour period.

Because their feeding tunnels are burrowed close to the surface, they can push up the ground above to create what are known as mole ridges and these can occasionally break through. If you notice these signs, Manchester mole trapping and control will likely be required to rid the pest from an area.
