Moles can do considerable damage to lawns, fairways, formal gardens and sports grounds with their constant tunneling. They create complex burrow systems below the surface with the ability to tunnel up to 4 metres an hour.
The tunneling damages plant roots and exposes stones which can damage machinery. The mole hills spoil lawns and makes sports grounds dangerous to play on

The size of their territory depends on the food supply which can be between 400-2000 square metres.

Moles can be treated in two ways, trapping or gassing. Traps are set in the burrows where the mole is most likely to return. The traps often need to be moved if the mole starts tunneling in a different area. The erratic and unpredictable nature of moles can mean that two or more visits are required to check and move the traps.
Gas treatments are not always successful, especially if the ground is dry. If the treatment is successful then it is possible that the area may become re-infested at a later date.
If traps have been placed it is important to ensure that they are not pulled up by people or damaged by machinery.
