About Me, John Noblett, Master Mole Catcher

My name is John Noblett and I am a full-time professional mole catcher based in Lancashire. I live in Warton, a small rural village just north west of Preston.

I was born on a farm in Chorley and spend the best years any child could wish for growing up and working on the farm, learning all about nature, the countryside, the farming industry and of course doing lots of trapping, hunting, shooting and fishing.


Traditionally farmers needed to know how to catch moles and control the excessive numbers on their land. I have carried on this tradition and have gained the knowledge and skills required to become a very successful mole catcher.

I am the first mole catcher in Lancashire to be awarded the title of Master Mole Catcher. This achievement is currently the highest level of accreditation a member of The Guild of British Molecatchers can achieve and is a testament to the very high standard of mole control that I offer.

My work as a molecatcher has evolved over the years to include rabbit control as well. This was one of my greatest pleasures as a child, hunting rabbits with an air rifle. It was a natural progression of my business that I stared to offer this service, initially to farmers, but now to domestic and commercial customers as well. And demand from my domestic and commercial clients forced me to add wasp nest treatment services, as many were finding it difficult to find reputable pest controllers to deal with these insects.

I am conveniently located to the main Lancashire Motorways to quickly provide services to most  parts of Lancashire and the North-West.

I cover the Lancashire Districts of:

  • Preston

  • Blackpool

  • Fylde 

  • Wyre

  • Ribble Valley

  • South Ribble

  • Chorley

  • Lancaster

  • Blackburn

  • Burnley

Plus areas of

  • Bolton

  • Wigan 

  • West Lancashire

Naturally I have full Public Liability Insurance and the relevant Fire Arms Certificate.


I am a member of the Safe Trader Scheme, part of Lancashire County Council's Trading Standards Service. ​
