Special Order—Subject to Availability

If you are a gardener, groundsman, smallholder, or farmer and have a mole problem, then this book will be of enormous help to you. Pest-control books normally only devote a paragraph or two to moles and rarely cover the subject in detail. In one of the most comprehensive books ever written on the topic, professional mole catcher Jeff Nicholls reveals his enormous respect for the mole and emphasizes the absulute need to control them using humane and traditional methods that have been proven to work effectively. First he discusses the natural history of the mole and explains its characteristics and behavior, an understanding of which is essential if successful catching techniques are to be applied. He then discusses in detail the methods he uses in different terrain and weather conditions, considers how to locate mole runs, describes all the different types of traps that can be employed, and explains how to set the traps correctly.

Jeff Nicholls has appeared on numerous radio and television programs, has been featured in Country Life magazine, provides mole-catching demonstrations at country shows, and trains the mole catchers of the future.
