Pest Control For Moles.

Trying to get rid of molesusing DIY methods.

People who are victims of mole damage often go on the hunt for DIY solutions and methods for mole eradications in Manchester Stockport Cheshire The problem with that is although the chemicals are powerful, they are also dangerous, costly and for the most part ineffective. The task of applying the poisons and chemicals is dangerous, and it is often a process of trial and error. In the interim, you are slowly over-poisoning your lawn and this can worsen your mole problem rather than improve it.

Moles are small mammals that have small beady eyes, rounded bodies and long snouts. They have predominant front claws which enable them to dig through the soil as if they were swimming. These claws make digging and tunneling a breeze for them. They live underground in a system of tunnels that are rarely seen. When moles are spotted on the odd occasion, they are often mistaken for mice. Moles have insatiable appetites and will search for food 24 hours a day, 12 months a year.

Moles prefer soil that is moist and loamy. When moles are present in your garden, you will notice mounds of soil erupting all over your lawn. These mounds are caused by the dirt the moles push to the surface while digging their tunnels. These mounds settle over time and leave your lawn with bare spots all over it. Conversely, the damage that the moles cause underground is the most problematic. Their excessive tunneling can cause driveways, rockeries and even sidewalks to weaken. Moles do not hibernate during winter and they will never go away without human intervention. Once the moles find a lawn rich in food, they will never leave voluntarily.
