This is the perfect time of year to get out and really enjoy your garden. However, certain pests might be spoiling your fun. As well as the usual garden villains, like slugs and aphids, you might have some unwanted company from a rather larger culprit: the mole.
These animals might not mean any harm, but they can devastate a garden if they’re not dealt with quickly and effectively. It’s one thing losing a few plants to greenfly, but having your beautiful lawn dug up by hungry moles can be heartbreaking, especially if you’ve been working to make sure it looks perfect for the summer months.
One thing you have working in your favour is the fact that moles are shy animals. Living in their underground tunnels created with their spade-like feet, the creatures prefer to keep themselves to themselves, which is why they’re rarely seen by people.
Mowing your lawn more frequently and letting your children play on the grass can help to deter moles from digging their way up to the surface of your garden.
However, if this isn’t enough and you’re looking for a more robust response to keep these pests away from your plants and lawn, you might want to take a look at the mole traps we sell here at Pest Control Supermarket.com Ltd.
We understand how distraught people can get when they discover mole hills around their property. That’s why we offer a variety of top-quality products that might be just what you’re after. You can take your pick from tunnel and scissor traps or mole smokes, which are humane and coat the lining of the mole tunnels, making their food source unpalatable and therefore encouraging the creatures to move on.
TomCat Talpirid Mole Trap
It’s also well worth taking a look at the TomCat Talpirid Mole Trap. This heavy-duty device weighs over a kilo and, among professionals, is widely considered to be the best mole trap on the market. However, some people may find this device harder to set than a mole scissor trap and so it’s really intended for expert rather than amateur use.
The innovative design of this trap represents a major breakthrough in the battle to control moles. It features a highly sensitive trigger that ensures moles can’t sneak through it. Meanwhile, its curved scissor-like jaws allow a great clearance when the trap is set and they help to scoop the animals into the trap once triggered. Its durable, glass-filled nylon and zinc coated springs make this product especially reliable and it can be used in most soil conditions, unlike weaker traps that can only function in sandy soil.
For added safety, the trap is set with the foot, allowing experts to keep their hands away from the jaws during the setting process. Also, it is tamper resistant, meaning it is almost impossible to trigger accidentally from above the ground.
