Jeff Nicholls is a professional molecatcher with a lifetime's experience of trapping these turf pests.
Not many people know this, but the collective noun for a group of moles is a labour. Rather an appropriate term considering how groundsmen, greenkeepers, farmers and gardeners have laboured over the years to try and rid their land of these tiny damaging creatures.
This is one of many facts about moles in this comprehensive book.
Jasper Carrott resorted to a shotgun to save his lawn but, not surprisingly, this is not recommended by Jeff. He believes the traditional methods of molecatching have not been bettered, and the book outlines the best and most humane ways in which to catch moles.
Catching a mole is easy when you have the knowledge, and Jeff is only too willing to pass on his wealth of experience. How to locate the runs, how to set the trap, how the mole behaves in different weather conditions - all this information is provided in simple, understandable terms with diagrams and pictures.
