F A Q
A: Ask to see the mole catcher's BTMR membership card. All BTMR members are issued with a personal membership number and an identity card displaying that number. Alternatively you could search BTMR's on-line directory: only BTMR recognised mole catchers may have an entry in the directory.
A: Not necessarily. Whilst BTMR maintains a formal register of all members, the on-line directory operates on an opt-in basis. It is not a condition of membership of BTMR that members are required to publish their identity or contact details via the directory or other media that BTMR might employ to service public interest and promote the discipline of traditional molecatching.
A: We are here to help you if you have a problem with a member. Also, please let us know if you find the service as you would like it. Tell us and your friends.
A: Yes - unless the member has given you a time limit for reinfestation? As moles are territorial, when a mole is eradicated a mole in adjoining territory is likely to invade the vacated territory, the best way to avoid this is to disturb the tunnel network that the previous mole has created.
A: The Directory refers to the geographical, or 'traditional' counties that have existed largely unchanged for centuries. Many people tend to refer generally to the counties as defined by Local Authority 'counties' and regions and which from time to time are redefined, some regional identities becoming lost and some that are new coming into being. For continuity of description therefore, the BTMR directory is based on the geographical counties.
