Norfolk’s very own & original Lady Mole Catcher®
The established, recognised and proven expert you can trust.
Louise Chapman BA (Hons) PGCE is Norfolk’s original and only Lady Mole Catcher and also Head of the British Mole Catchers Register. Louise was trained under the expert tutelage of John Lill in 2010. Having previously worked as a teacher, She made a lifestyle choice and changed her career to work outside, managing wild life and the problems it can cause if it becomes out of control.
Louise uses traditional methods to catch moles.
There are many myths that surround controlling moles which you can read about by clicking the ‘What NOT not to do’ button on this page, but some other extreme and dangerous methods are:
- Putting a tube attached to a car exhaust down into the run.
- Pouring diesel into a run and worse still, igniting it!
Beware that these methods are illegal and that the use of explosives or asphyxiation for the killing of any wild animal under section 11(2) of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, can lead to a £5,000 fine or up to 6 months in prison. These methods cause unnecessary suffering to the animal and it is my purpose to ensure that the animal experiences minimal suffering, in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act 2006.

After a frustrating three months of mole activity in the garden, which had unhappily thwarted others, I contacted Louise. The very next morning the mole catcher arrived to set the traps. When he checked them the following afternoon, two moles had been caught! I am very impressed by the speedy, professional and, above all, most effective, service provided. Brilliant!
We have used Louise on three occasions for cluster flies and a flea issue at our holiday home. Every time she has provided an excellent service and dealt with the problem very quickly for us.
Having found moths in our lounge/dining room carpet I got in touch with Louise. She came, looked, explained about the damage moths do to carpets and treated all our carpets, both upstairs and down. She was efficient, very professional and returned twice more to check she had got rid of them. She is very friendly and also very interesting to talk to. We would not hesitate to recommend her. Thank you Louise!
One of the joys in my life is the many varieties of birds that come into the garden and use the bird feeders. Recently Grey Squirrels had become a serious nuisance. They are spiteful not only to each other but to the birds, who became reluctant to use the feeders. I was also concerned that once the birds started laying their eggs they would take those as well. I contacted Louise, the Lady Mole Catcher and asked for her help. Louise assured me that she would trap the Squirrels humanely, which she did very efficiently. Seven Squirrels later I now have the birds feeding again. I thoroughly recommend Louise she is professional, friendly and very efficient at what she does.
Louise did an excellent job. She responded quickly to our request and her knowledge and professional approach were exactly what we were looking for. She was able to catch the squirrels that had caused so much damage and do so fitting in around our other commitments. I would certainly recommend.
Louise was dealing with a mole & rat problem we had which she dealt with very efficiently. On her last visit we discovered a wasp nest & Louise did a great job of getting rid of them too! Cannot recommend her too highly!
Having worked with Louise (Lady Molecatcher) during recent weeks regarding a problem we had with both moles & rats, we then found a wasp nest in our shed. There was nobody else to call but Lady Molecatcher…the wasp nest was dealt with professionalism and knowledge, it was all over in just a few moments. Sorted! We then discovered another two wasp nests in the roof of the house and again Lady Molecatcher arrived the same day we called her and again the situation was dealt with swiftly. We would without any hesitation recommend Louise to deal with any of the above issues you may have. It was a pleasure to come across somebody who can deal with these issues in a professional manner but always with a smile on her face.
I'd like to thank Louise for solving a Bed Bug problem swiftly. My daughter had arrived home after a school trip and brought with her some unwelcome guests - Bed Bugs! My daughter was bitten and the Doctor confirmed Bed Bugs, which he said probably hitched a ride in my daughter's luggage. Louise came the very day I 'phoned her and took control of the situation. Thank you Louise, what a relief!!
Louise sorted our first mole problem in just two hours, the second by the next morning. Her professionalism, knowledge and experience of where to position the traps was so accurate, just amazing! We have felt incredibly comfortable working with Louise who is a very friendly and sociable young lady. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Louise.
Louise was very prompt and efficient. We had a serious rabbit problem which she has brought under control. She explained what was needed, carried out the work and returned as promised to complete what was started. We would definitely recommend Louise to anyone.
Rabbits, not moles, were my problem. Lots of them and notice the past tense. Over the years I had tried my methods and different individuals to cure my rabbit problem without luck. My garden over the past two years was devoured by rabbits. Along came Louise and within three weeks the rabbits were gone. Her approach was multifaceted. She arrived when she said she would, kept me informed of progress while I was away by video and persisted until I could confirm there were no more sightings of rabbits. I would recommend her services.
Very professional and quick results. If you have moles in your lawn, call Louise. I will always recommend you! Thank you.
