Hi everyone I guess my user name gives it away !? I was brought up in a small hamlet near York, no pub ,no shop just farms. Dad had a few pigs,chickens, dogs n cats.Somehow I got into industry but now I am living in Devon and back to my roots.
You sound like a nice bunch-I read the mole catching thing-if anyone needs any free tips or advice let me know,
Best Wishes

helllo- i love ebing on this forum - everybody is so helpful and friendly - I am in lincolnshire and the mole problem on my exs 4 acres thats  she has is a huge problem- If only you lived close by we could offer wonderful cream doughnuts on tap for you and lashings of tea and coffee in our quest to radicate these machines that love to make such massive  mounds everywhere. I keep thinking of bill murrey in caddyshack as the  garderner on the golf course -( wasnt moles in that case but the comparisons are so similar ;D )

Hello from me too,

In a snowy Lanarkshire.  ;D
My moles seem to have deserted me over that last couple of years (not that I'm complaining in the slightest!) But I hadn't actually done anything to try and get rid of them - other than an army of ferrel cats about the place, who love catching them.
Would there be any other reason for them leaving an area ? Just curious  ???
