Mole catching is not confined to the United Kingdom
We know from our servers that the web site of the Guild of British Molecatchers is visited by our friends from around the world. We openly welcome you all and are very keen and interested to here from you. Moles are without doubt a fascinating creature to have any level of contact with and as with any animal that we share our planet with we never fail to stop learning about.
The Guild of British Molecatchers we are working to provide an acceptable level of welfare for moles whilst controlling them. Here in the UK moles are permitted to be controlled by various methods or practices, some which even here within the Guild are considered as inhumane or unacceptable. Controlling any species of animal must be carried out in a manner that is humane and with the least amount of suffering. Current methods here in the UK obviously include the traditional use of traps but even these implements need to be carefully monitored both in their construction and use if they are to complete the required task effectively and humanely.
We are very interested in what methods of mole control are used in other parts of the world, what traps and trapping technics' are used and what requirements, legislation or restrictions apply in your part of the world.
We would really like to learn from around the world - please e mail us here at the Guild- e mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Why not join us here in the United Kingdom as a supporter, or even start your own Guild of Molecatchers in your country?
We will create a special page here for all the international information and stories that we receive.
Our International pages will provide support and offer any advice to enquirers who are from outside the UK. We will post here articles reports and other information we receive from persons involved in or interested in mole control from around the world.
Help us create the bigger picture for Mole Control from around the world
