This episode gets surprisingly silly. You can get your own copy of the book on Amazon or at your weird friend's garden party.
Mole Catching: A Practical Guide
by Jeff Nicholls
If you are a gardener, groundsman, smallholder, or farmer and have a mole problem, then this book will be of enormous help to you. Pest-control books normally only devote a paragraph or two to moles and rarely cover the subject in detail. In one of the most comprehensive books ever written on the topic, professional mole catcher Jeff Nicholls reveals his enormous respect for the mole and emphasizes the absolute need to control them using humane and traditional methods that have been proven to work effectively. First he discusses the natural history of the mole and explains its characteristics and behavior, an understanding of which is essential if successful catching techniques are to be applied. He then discusses in detail the methods he uses in different terrain and weather conditions, considers how to locate mole runs, describes all the different types of traps that can be employed, and explains how to set the traps correctly.
