Up at the barn, our new orchard and Croquet lawn has recently become covered with Molehills.
OK, they're cute little creatures with cosy patchwork waistcoats and bijou underground homes, but Moles are also a dreadful bloody nuisance.
There are various methods of ridding oneself of Moles; some more efficient than others. My own favourite, and at which I've been the most successful, are these English Mole traps (not for English Moles, you understand; but made in England). The French equivalents are hopeless.
My son Kimbo recently sent me the two above.
When set correctly, this is the result; a cleanly killed Mole who will no longer rampage beneath my lawn. If you have the same problem, I recommend these ones which we purchased through Amazon; don't buy the French ones.
N.B. If the above disturbs you, I'm sorry. But, for us country folk, Moles really are a pain in the rectum.
