Mole catching in Hampshire

Whether you have a small garden, paddocks, or a farm, I can provide an effective service to catch your moles. I use 'Traditional' mole catching techniques using tunnel traps, I do not use poisons, gases or chemicals.

The rule, which I will apply to all of my mole catching work, is that there is simply ‘No fee’ if I do not catch. In that sense the emphasis is completely upon me to prove my worth as a mole catcher.

For example, a home owner may want the mole damage to their lawn stopped entirely, whilst a farmer may wish the numbers of moles in his pastureland to be reduced and managed over a year. For that reason I split the pricing 'generally' between domestic and agricultural land, but there will always be some exceptions to that. Below is some guidance of that pricing, however the best advice is to contact me and we can discuss your personal requirements.

I rely heavily on recommendations for future mole catching and in my experience that only comes from being fair, honest and effective with your mole problems.

Domestic Gardens

Moles in domestic gardens can cause a surprising amount of damage. However, in gardens of an ‘average’ size, there will generally only be a small number of moles and usually only one. For this reason I find that the most appropriate charge is a minimum fee, this covers the 'Set-up' and the first mole caught, followed by a set figure for each subsequent mole caught. You will pay nothing until I have started to catch. If our agreement is to remove all moles and prevent further damage then I will keep trapping until that is achieved. In these circumstances I make a charge for the first mole caught and an additional cost for every mole in the same trapping period. For larger gardens with high mole activity I am always willing to discuss reduced rates. This arrangement will typically involve me doing the following:

  • Initial Contact - Advice/Assessment
  • Day 1 - ‘Set-up’ - Site Visit, Assessment, Agreement and Traps set
  • Day 2 - Traps checked
  • Day 3 - Traps checked and removed if satisfied that moles have been caught
  • Any mole activity after the traps have been removed and within 7 days (trapping period) will be charged at a fixed fee per mole
  • Any mole activity after 7 days will be considered a new job and will be charged at the normal rates

You do NOT pay for the number of visits but the number of moles caught. Whilst I cannot tell exactly how many moles will be present (no mole catcher can), I can place an agreed ‘ceiling’ on the cost and will either catch up to that sum (per mole rate) or to the point where no further mole damage occurs.

Agricultural / Commercial   

These rates typically relate to farmland, paddocks, sports fields, golf courses, churchyards, camping sites, commercial and business properties. Generally covering a larger acreage than domestic gardens, these sites are usually affected by more moles. Subject to your expectation from the trapping and the degree of infestation, there are a number of options available and consideration can be given to reduced costs 'per mole' or a contract based on a specific agreement and expectation of mole control. This might mean initial clearance then regular visits to the perimeter of the land to deal with any new activity. Please note that in all cases I will work with you to agree a pricing plan that recognises your expectations and requirements.

In all cases ‘No Fee’ is due until I have started to catch and in all cases, the emphasis will be placed upon me to catch quickly and effectively.
