Frequently Asked Questions

Fascinating creatures as they may be (to some people), moles are considered pests by most. Many questions have been asked by those who know very little, or nothing at all, about them.

Here are a collection of the most frequently asked questions:

How did you become a professional mole catcher?
A: When I was younger I caught moles for farmers in exchange for shooting rights on their land, after many years I become very confident in getting a quick catch and my details were passed onto other farmers and homeowners.
How do you remove The moles?
A: Tornado Mole Control uses traditional trapping methods only, we do not use any poisons and gases.
What type of traps do you use?

A: Depending on the job and type of ground, I use five types of traps including Tunnel trap, Talpex trap, Putange trap, fenn loop and trapline.

How long do moles live for?
A: The mole is quite a long lived animal for its size and can live up to 3-5 years. That is of course if they do not come into contact with a mole catcher.
What do moles eat?
A: Moles feed on earthworms and other small insects. The mole digs tunnels which are smooth and well-padded down. When small insects and worms fall into these tunnels they become trapped.
Why do moles make mole hills?
A: Moles dig an extensive tunnel system on many levels, most of the soil is compressed into the sides and floor of these tunnels, but when the mole digs tunnels near the surface they push access soil to the surface to get rid of it
When do moles breed?
A: The mole breeding season is in the spring time in April. There is usually more mole activity around this time with more mole hills appearing.
How big are moles?
A: Some people think that considering the size of some mole hills, moles must be huge, but they are surprisingly small creatures, measuring approx 6 inches long (but as with all creatures, there are huge variations).
Do moles live a solitary life?
A: Apart from the breeding season, moles generally like to live alone and defend their tunnel system aggressively. Often several moles will inhabit the same field, but each will have a separate tunnel system.
Is it true that moles are blind?
A: Moles are not blind, but their eyesight is poor and is mainly sensitive to light or dark conditions.
Are moles nocturnal?
A: No, moles are not specifically nocturnal. They sleep for four hours and then are active for four hours and this continues day and night.
How deep do moles dig?
A: Moles dig their tunnels on several levels or depths and use different parts of the tunnel system depending on conditions. Mole activity which is visible comes from the upper most tunnel systems. These tunnels are just a few inches deep.
