Dealing With A Mole Infestation In Maidstone?

Suspect You Have Moles?

Moles might look cute and harmless, but these small pests can move 540 times their body weight in soil in a day! They need to eat plenty of earthworms and other insects to survive, so moles often spend hours digging and can create a complex network of tunnels that leaves your garden almost unusable in no time at all.

These industrious little pests can make light work of your garden, destroying your grass in as little as 24 hours. Without expert knowledge and professional equipment, getting rid of moles in the garden is an unachievable feat, and it's easy to feel overwhelmed by the damage they cause.

Thankfully, Pest-Tech is able to offer expert mole control services for residential and commercial properties across Maidstone and Kent. Call now on 01622 296055 or email the Pest-Tech team at to book your pest control site survey today.

Signs of a Mole Problem

Since moles tunnel underground, it can be hard to see mole infestations and identify them correctly. Damage to your lawn could be caused by other pests, such as foxes or rabbits, so it’s hard to know for sure if you have moles or not.

Because they’re burrowing mammals, moles create a tunnel system under your lawn, which can be highly distinctive and has some clear signs above ground. Signs of mole tunnels include:

  • Uneven, bumpy ground or raised ridges on your lawn
  • Stereotypical molehills which look like fresh mounds of soil
  • Dead grass where the moles have killed their root systems
  • Plants and bushes with their roots disturbed

Moles are fast movers, and as such, these signs might appear very suddenly. Still, before you know it, unsightly mounds of loose soil can appear, and the next thing you know, the mole tunnel has caused major issues for your garden.

Read our Garden Mole Guide for more information on moles and their behaviour. If you’ve noticed any of these signs on your property, then it’s time to contact us as soon as possible to book your mole control treatment.

How Pest-Tech Removes Moles

Moles can be difficult to catch, as they don’t often come above surface level and can spend almost their entire life underground. People often think moles are blind, but actually, they just don’t see well, which is why they prefer to spend time in their tunnels.

When removing moles from your property, Pest-Tech aims to provide a safe solution that does as little damage as possible. As such, we use humane traps to catch the moles and remove them from your garden. Tunnel trapping catches the moles when they’re inside their burrows and

If the mole infestation is large or the moles prove difficult to catch, there are other methods we can use to ensure that we get rid of moles for good, including using gas to exterminate the moles. This approach will remove all the moles from your garden quickly to reduce the chances of serious damage to your property.

Once we’ve removed the infestation, we can use solutions such as mole netting to prevent moles from getting back into your garden. Some plants, such as marigolds, daffodils and garlic, are also natural mole deterrents, and we can advise you on how to place them strategically to reduce the chances of moles returning.

Due to their intelligence and destructive nature, DIY mole control is simply not possible; instead, we recommend you leave controlling garden moles to the professionals.
