Dick lives in East Grinstead West Sussex and is available for service in Sussex, Surrey and West Kent. Small and large sites undertaken including Private Gardens, Golf Courses, Farms, Sports Pitches and Schools.


Only humane traps are used. These are made for professional use which ensures the moles are killed instantly. After locating the main run that the mole is using a trap is carefully placed, then as the mole passes through the trap it will be killed quickly and humanely.

Mole Catching

I do regular work at Horne Park Golf Club in Godstone, Hickstead and various farms and stately homes. I also work as a molecatcher at the prestigious Worth School and Abbey where, for over five years my services have been highly valued. They have an extremely large (550 acre) site which is both complex and varied for mole catching, however I am also happy to work on small sites such as private gardens, where there may only be a single mole.

Ten interesting facts about moles :

  1. A mole can move 800 times their own body weight of soil in 24 hours!
  2. They can live their whole life underground, without breaking surface.
  3. To survive they need to eat about 2/3 of their body weight in a day to survive.
  4. I have heard of a mole making over 20 mole hills in a single day.
  5. They are incredibly strong. If a man had the same strength for his size he could lift a 4 ton elephant.
  6. The oldest recorded mole lived for 7 years. It is rare for a mole to live longer than 4 years.
  7. There are about 60M people in the UK and about 45M moles.
  8. The mole’s tunnel system is a bit like our road network and in theory  you could go from one end of the country to the other by mole tunnel.
  9. Moles live in most parts of the UK but there are none in Ireland.
  10. About 98% of a mole’s diet is worms. Yummee!
