Moles are fine unless you're making hay as the mower will spread the soil everywhere and spoil the hay. I've heard moles are everywhere this winter. My two meadows are spread full of molehills.

...just too took the dog for a quad-bike run .. my middle field suddenly looks like the battle of the somme - just two days after only a few hills.
But i like moles, do good drainage and it'll all chain harrow down as soon as it's dry enough to get the tractor on it.

I am happy to let things live but not at the cost of my paddocks. Sadly the moles are being evicted at the moment. Thus far I have trapped quick death 15 moles.
I use the spring traps with two hoops that snap down.

The moles are certainly busy this year,  ive caught 38 so far in the last couple of months.
I do a a bit of trapping for a few people i know and charge 5-10/mole depending on the distance from home i have to travel.
One chap pays (by choice) 15/mole as hes over the moon that i catch them for him!
