Our Code & Aims

In summary the aims are.....

To promote, improve and advance the skills of the Traditional British Molecatcher, for the benefit of the public and agriculture.

To ensure the advancement of Molecatchers  and to provide training for people who wish to acquire those skills.

To promote Traditional Molecatching through the press and media, and to provide a base 24/7 which separates the professional  Molecatcher from other pest control operators.

To provide a network of Molecatchers throughout the British Isles. In local areas where they can concentrate  on smaller more compact areas .


The role of the Molecatcher in the British countryside goes back hundreds of years. Alas like all traditional skills they have slowly been in decline. But hopefully with the emergence of the B T M R  things will start to improve. The BTMR website intends to be the definitive site for British Molecatchers.

With the withdrawal of Strychnine for mole control the demand for the Traditional Molecatcher has risen and will rise in the future. Many of the pest control companies are abandoning mole control work because trapping is too time consuming for them, and gassing is not totally effective, and can only be used in certain locations, and weather conditions. Not so with the Traditional Molecatcher, these individuals are not fazed by many of the jobs put before them. They are experts at mole catching and are aware of all the associated problems.

Members will be permitted to display the B.T.M.R. logo on their vehicles ( badge Issued with Membership cards), and will be able to use the B.T.M.R. logo on their letter head and any other promotional material..

Enquiries and work requests received by BTMR will only be passed on to fully paid up members of BTMR.

Launch and development of BTMR is expected to receive considerable complimentary media coverage,

Professional Traditional Molecatchers will benefit from the reputation that membership of BTMR brings.
