Guild of Master Mole Catchers

Member Number 910

As a Member of the Guild we uphold the highest possible standards of animal welfare, showing these remarkable creatures the greatest respect.  Working to a code of practice identifies a proficient stance to the task that has been requested, and when such a commission requires the removal of the existence of an animal then the best possible compassion and proficiency must be the principal concern.

Employing a proven working practice will provide a minimum standard for such a task and regulate to maintain those levels and provide a better service to both client and target species.
These simple points combine to create a workable practice that has been proven for use

  • Respect the mole at all times.
  • Before commencement of work make a full assessment of the area and consider the personal and /or risks to third parties or other non-target species.
  • Consider the use of the area/s and what type of mole trap would be beneficial and achieve the results to that location.
  • Only use good quality traps that are in good working order.
  • When using traps never leave them exposed, care should be taken to cover to avoid accidentally injuring non-target species or third parties and reduce tampering
  • Traps must be inspected once a day, however where risk assessment identifies, some multiple visits maybe required
  • Always record the quantity of traps used at a location.
  • Always remove all traps from a location if inspection is no longer to be made.

BASIS Prompt Register

Member Number PC/4933

The BASIS PROMPT Pest Controllers register is an industry initiative which provides independent proof that a pest controller has received proper professional training and has continued to update their expertise through Continuing Professional Development (CPD). As registration has to be renewed each year, members of the register will always be aware of the most up-to-date techniques, products and legal obligations.

The objective of BASIS PROMPT is to provide an independent industry recognised register of suitably qualified people who can genuinely claim to be professionals in public health pest control and related activities. To gain this recognition, applicants must prove that they:

  • Have achieved a minimum level of competence as a professional pest controller
  • Have maintained that competence through suitable Continuing Professional Development (CPD); and
  • Operate to the highest professional standards of workmanship and conduct as set out in the BASIS PROMPT Code of Ethics
