Protecting businesses and homes in Poland from Pests
European (garden) moles can do considerable damage to turf, lawns, formal gardens, fairways, greens and sports grounds with their constant digging. They can quickly establish themselves in a location due to their ability to tunnel up to 4 metres an hour, creating complex burrow systems. The eyesight of moles is generally poor, as is their sense of smell. They find food by their acute sense of touch and vibration.
Mole hills and ridges spoil lawns, bowling and golf greens and flower beds. Their tunnelling damages the roots of young plants and exposes stones and debris that can damage machinery. These factors are costly to gardeners and businesses that rely on their grounds, lawns, greens or gardens.
FACT: Moles prefer to inhabit areas which are rich in insects and worms, as they are insectivores with around 80% of their diet being earthworms.
Taking prompt action at the first sign of moles will ensure your problem can be quickly treated.

It’s unlikely that you will ever see moles as they rarely venture above ground, but the irritating evidence of their existence on your property is hard to miss.
Molehills are the name given to fresh mounds of earth that spring up overnight on lawns and other grassy areas.
Newly formed molehills will have loose, damp soil between the blades of grass, whereas the soil on older hills will have become flatter and more compacted.
Distinctive raised ridges are also caused by the extensive tunneling of moles.
Mole runs disturb roots and can hinder growth in crops, flowering plants and lawn areas.
Tunnelling by moles will bring stones up to the surface which may damage mowing machines and harvesters.
The very uneven ground caused by raised ridges and molehills can cause livestock to fall and become injured.
Our certified Technicians provide safe, effective solutions to get rid of moles with as little disruption to your business as possible.
Professional trapping or fumigation with phostoxin are the most effective ways to control moles. This chemical will decompose after use into a small pile of greyish powder. This has no residual effect on soil and will not harm plant life in the treated area.
If you have a mole problem, we can promptly arrange a tailored treatment plan to effectively take care of it with the minimum of fuss.
There is an argument for tolerating a small number of moles, as they are not known to carry disease. If this is how you feel, simply remove the earth that makes up the molehills and use a roller to flatten lawn areas where required.
However, if you need to get rid of the garden moles on your land, Mefisto has the expertise to help.

If treatment involves the use of Phostoxin, the chemical will decompose after use into a small pile of greyish powder. This has no residual effect on soil and won’t harm plant life in the treated area. However for safety, people and animals should be kept away from treated areas for at least 2 days to prevent any possibility of the treatment being dug up whilst still active.
