Mole Catching Prices and Information for Domestic Homeowners
Important Information Update
Due to increasing work loads from my agricultural clients,
there may be times when I’m not able to offer my usual immediate “on demand” call
out to a garden mole problem.
This is because all my agricultural customers book
me in advance each year, irrespective of the level of mole infestation they may
or may not have.
When you contact me I will be able to tell you there
and then if there is going to be a delay in getting to deal with your mole problem.
If you live near to, or on route to a farm that I’m
currently working on then there shouldn’t be a problem, but if you live 50
miles away in the opposite direction, there will be a delay.
Once you have contacted Lancashire Mole Control, I will arrange to visit your garden or smallholding to assess the extent of the problem.
Having done so, I will explain as much as you want to know about the work involved, and will fully clarify the pricing structure. I can also estimate the approximate final cost based on the evidence I have seen, but be aware, I can get it wrong. Some times an area may have just the odd molehill, but can have many moles passing through. And often a huge amount of mole activity is the work of just one mole. A crystal ball would be helpful at times.
Lancashire Mole Control - Mole catching pricing and costs for homeowners.
The final bill comprises of two elements;
1. the cost for catching each mole
2. the cost of fuel and time spent travelling to carry out the work
Cost per Mole
First Mole £40.00
Additional Moles £10.00
Cost of Travel
.25p per mile; based on return travel from PR4 1DB to your home for each visit. (fastest route via Sat Nav)
A minimum of two visits are all that is normally required for a simple one mole problem, though sometimes more visits are necessary depending on the circumstances.
Where I have many gardens to attend to in one area, or I am also doing farm mole control in your area then I will split travel costs with all clients. This means your individual travel costs will be lower.
Remember, if I don’t catch your mole there is no charge what so ever.
Mole control can begin immediately if you are happy with what I have explained.
Your location will have a direct influence over the final cost, not only because of the travel distance, but also due to the local mole population. Some gardens may get a mole and never have another for months or even years, others it can be a daily, weekly or monthly occurrence until all moles that are using your garden have been accounted for.
The worst case scenario is where there is a main run crossing your lawn, here it does not matter how many traps I put down, I will only catch one at a time, unless I can get traps further up and down the main run (which may be on someone else’s property). In these cases I often end up with just one trap in the lawn catching a mole a day for a week or more.
Just something to bear in mind, no two jobs are the same.
If your lawn is adjacent to farmland, woodland, common land or scrub and no mole control takes place there to keep the mole population under check, the chances of another mole visiting your garden are much higher.
In the event of new mole activity appearing after I have considered all moles to have been accounted for and have removed all my traps, I have in place an arrangement were for the next 7 days any additional moles to be caught are only charged at the relevant additional mole rate (that is £10.00 plus travel).
This some times does happen whereby a remaining mole may just lie low for a few days and then start digging again, or another new mole has quickly come into the now vacant tunnel system.
After 7 days of no fresh mole activity, any new activity requiring control measures will be treated as a completely new job.
