Pest Control and Pest Prevention Services for Golf Courses & Sports Fields

Have you got a mole or other pest problems on your golf course?
Our specialised pest control services for golf courses can help.

As a golf course manager, ensuring that your course is well maintained and free from pests is probably at the top of your list of priorities.

Golf courses without appropriate pest control measures in place are at significant risk of their course and in turn, their reputation and income, facing ruin. Pests such as moles, rabbits and rats can cause massive amounts of destruction to a course by burrowing underneath.

Unfortunately, all too often pest control is overlooked by golf clubs and is only something that is considered when unwanted pests have already moved in. By this point however, it is likely that significant damage will already have been done. This will usually mean costly landscaping work, with the course facing closure and associated loss of revenue during the remediation process.  A reactive pest control service will also be required to rid the golf course of the unwanted visitors.

How do golf courses typically control moles, rabbits and rats?

Mole Control

To get rid of moles tunnelling under grass, typical methods often employed by golf courses including tunnel trapping and gassing.

Rabbit Control

Various effective methods are available to control rabbits. Golf courses will typically employ gassing, shooting, trapping, fencing, scaring and repellents. Sometimes it may be necessary to use more than one of these methods in conjunction with each other to improve the effectiveness of control.

Rat Control

There are a number of different types of traps that can be used to effectively control rats and golf courses may consider gassing methods in burrows.

However, it is far more prudent to ensure that you have a good, integrated pest management programme in place to stop pest infestations from occurring in the first place and making the methods outlined above redundant. With a clear focus on preventative measures, Monitor Pest Control, can help.
