We offer a completely safe and effective mole removal service specifically thought out with horses in mind. Being horse owners ourselves we are well practised at fast and efficient mole removal as soon as they appear to keep our horses safe and the land in good order.
With grazing being so limited these days, in some areas, we find our clients with horses or livestock are anxious to get their mole problems under control quickly.
A single mole can make short work of the amount of damage it can do to paddocks and grazing areas in a relatively short period, we have cleared paddocks and fields used for horses and livestock which were previously totally overrun with moles with the grazing areas being unusable in places.
Mole activity left untreated with the resulting molehills and tunnel networks can prove hazardous and present a real danger to what were previously safe areas of grazing, especially for horses with their tendency to run around more so than other livestock increasing the risk of injury such as damage to tendons resulting in lameness on the undulated ground as a result of mole activity.
As soon as molehills appear in your paddocks or fields, the problem should be dealt with to prevent the issues above from happening and once treated a maintenance programme put in place to stop any further activity from moles.What do they look like?
Moles are silver grey to black, around 12-15cm in length and weigh approximately 70 – 100 grams.
Their fur lies in either direction so that they can move forwards and backwards through their tunnels with ease. They have sensory hairs on their heads, forefeet and tail, which allows them to pick up information from vibrations in the ground.How do I spot them?
Moles are found in most of Europe except for Ireland and live in and around: Stables and paddocks, Farms, playing fields, parks, golf courses, private gardens, grassland and deciduous woodland areas.How do they live?
Moles live for approximately three years and the breeding season is between February and June. Moles only have one litter of young a year and the gestation period is four weeks. The litter of young is between two and seven, and the young are born blind and without fur. The mother feeds them for four to five weeks, and after that, they leave the nest to fend for themselves. Moles are active throughout the year and do not hibernate.How do they affect me?
Due to tunnelling behaviour, they cause damage to land and danger to livestock by the unsightly molehills they create. On paddocks, farms, golf courses and lawns, the area disfigured by the molehill prevents the grass from growing and allows weeds to grow. Where they have been digging under crops, it can cause some of the plant to die or have its growth stuntedHow do I control them?
Mole problems can be controlled quickly and efficiently with fast response times.
