Mole trouble

I have a mole in my garden, making a complete mess of my lawn.

Mole tunnels in my lawn

It’s not even contenting itself with a few discreet molehills. These are apparently feeding tunnels, just underneath the ground surface, and all have appeared since the weekend. It looks like a young child has scribbled all over my lawn – it’s a right mess! I’m not happy!

    Oh heck!!!
    but this did bring to mind the Jaspar Carrot sketch about moles which you really should watch if you can find it on YouTube

    That was quick work from the mole. Is it also responsible for the bigger holes by the house and wall that we thought might be rabbits?
    Maybe you need a gang to come and jump up and down on the lawn for an hour or two!

    I was told recently that moles are heamophiliacs so if you put some brambles or branch with thorns done the hole, then little moley will cut itself and bleed to death.

    Or alternatively a good old fashioned mole trap and none of your animal friendly “lets help relocate little mole to a new home in a nice friendly way” type

    Guild of mole catchers, WOW, Brilliant

    I could hire you out two cats who are good at it but they arent ‘team players’, ‘can lack motivation’ and it wouldnt be a fixed price contract 🙂

    Alternatively, I could lend you a swivel chair if you decide to try the Jasper Carrott approach!
