The withdrawal of strychnine, which we used for a number of years, has lead to a rapid increase in the number of moles, causing problems for farmers and landowners.
In response to this situation, we have invested in a large number of mole traps, which, due to the experience and rural background of most of our employees, have proven to be an extremely effective alternative with over 1000 moles caught on some farms.
As it is more efficient to lay all the traps during one visit, it is worth assessing the exact area of land you need trapping, to avoid any un-necessary visits and therefore additional costs.
We carry out various methods of control for rabbits, depending on the area in which we are working. Gassing, shooting and ferreting are the most common, and these can be adapted to provide suitable forms of control on areas ranging from large, remote, rural sites to local playing fields and allotments.
As rabbits tend to infill on vacated warrens, this type of work tends to be ongoing over a number of years, whereby the main control work is carried out in the first year, with smaller, less expensive follow up treatments in the years after, until there is evidence of less damage being created.
Weed and Vegetation Control
Bracken, Thistles, Nettles and Docks are typical of the usual weed control we carry out, be it over inaccessible moorland areas or around the farm.
