Emerald Garden Mole Control Croydon, CR0 South East London and Kent Service

Emerald Garden Mole Control Croydon CR0 South East London and Kent Services.jpgMoles are one of those pests that are a nuisance to some, but not too much of an issue for others. They live below ground and are generally thought of as a secretive creature; rarely popping their head into daylight, moles tend to only seek each other’s company until breeding time, which starts around April time.

Tunnelling metres and metres of tunnels, moles live in extensive systems of underground homes. Occasionally, they will dig a portion in which they can live, sleep and eat; their tunnels also criss-cross above and below each other and, toward the mating season, they will create a mating chamber. Only able to see shades of light and dark, moles have brilliant hearing and sense of ‘feel’ – they can detect the smallest insect close by, perfect for their four hourly eating ritual.

Emerald Garden Mole Control Croydon CR0, provides professional mole control service for all domestic and residential customers.

The European mole is a fantastically well adapted mammal, contrary to popular belief the mole does not hibernate, he may have to tunnel a little deeper during cold periods primarily because his main food source (earth worms) tend to move deeper during cold weather (and during hot dry periods too).


Moles need to eat their own weight daily, relying mostly on earthworms, but will also eat slugs, beetles, spiders, centipedes, and leather-jackets, in fact they will even eat dead birds / mice if they stumble across them. The mole needs to consume around 50lbs of food per year!!


He will not however, eat any of your plants. The first signs of moles on a property are molehills, these are the excavations made by the mole during its tunnelling activities There will normally be a system of permanent tunnels about 30-60cm below the surface which are unlikely to be detected from above.

Moles are highly territorial and generally live alone in an extensive tunnel system. Molehills are created as the animals extend and repair their tunnels, which act as traps to catch their main prey, earthworms. One mole can produce a considerable number of hills, particularly where food is in short supply. Between five and eight young are born in the spring and these disperse, generally in very shallow tunnels in midsummer to try to establish their own territories.


Mole numbers have increased dramatically since 2006 and are now estimated to be in excess of 30 million moles in the UK. If you have moles or mole hills in your Croydon garden contact Emerald Pest Control before the problems get out of hand. Call 0800 023 5684 now.
