Radio 4, Farming Today. 15th August, 2016, Louise Chapman, Lady Molecatcher. by Lady Mole Catcher published on 2016-08-31T08:10:42Z We hear from a traditional mole catcher. There are 33 million moles in Britain and that number is rising. In the past they bred only once a year, in March. But as the climate changes, moles have begun breeding in September as well. Poisoning moles with Strychnine has been illegal for a decade. And last year legislation was brought in requiring a certificate of competence to use chemical alternatives, giving more work to traditional mole catchers. Presented by Felicity Evans and produced by Emily Hughes.
