Can You Catch Moles Alive?

This is probably the most common question I get asked as a professional mole catcher.

Unfortunately the answer is no.

Below are the reasons why

1. Not many people realise that moles feed on a 4 hour cycle day and night. If we were to trap the mole alive then we would have to return every 4 hours day and night to check the trap to avoid the mole dying of starvation. If this was an option the customer would have to pay a call out fee day and night each time the trap is checked and would cost anywhere between £60-£100 per visit!

2. If we could catch the mole what would we do with it? Moles are very territorial therefore they can only be released into a non infested area which by law must be private land. It must also have a sufficient food source which means it must have a vacant tunnel system for the mole to feed straight away.

The only way to effectively control moles is to trap them which as you may have found out is a lot harder than it sounds.
