CINCH Trapping Tips:

After you have set your Cinch traps leave the hole open, air movement is important. In the event you have concerns about the open hole, just put a bucket or a small piece of wood over the hole leaving room for air movement.

If you think your trap has the scent from a predator you should clean them with soap and water and lightly spray with CINCH Maintenance Spray. This process will eliminate any scent on the trap. Predator (mostly dogs and cats) scent will alert moles and gophers to danger and they will plug the trap.

Using flags to mark your set is a great idea, especially when setting several sets. Always remove all traps from the area when doing ground maintenance. Traps and tractors do not work well together.

CINCH Most Asked Trapping Questions: 

Question- I received the mole traps, followed the directions, overnight the trap was sprung and I pulled the trap out it was empty. Thoughts?

Answer- Sometimes when you set the trap, if there is a bend in the tunnel the mole can get by and then can set the trap from the back and will back fill the hole with dirt. When you set the trap get a long dowel or stick and make sure the tunnel is straight, long and really cleared out. That way you know they won't be able to get around your trap. If they get around the trap they can push the dirt onto the plates which will set off the trap.

Question- Do I have moles or gophers?

Answer- There are several ways to identify what you have working in your yard. First, let’s look at the food source; moles eat bugs, grubs, and worms. Gophers on the other hand, eat vegetation, roots and grasses. Take a good look around your area to identify the food source. Second, let’s look at your above ground activity. Moles will have a perfect mound of soil; very seldom will you see any open holes. Moles will also leave a raised tunnel system just below the sod. Gophers will have a lower mounding of soil in a horse shoe shape; many times you may see an open hole in the center of the activity. Identifying you activity is important to achieve control. The Cinch mole and gopher traps are of different sizes and the proper trap is critical for your success.

Question- How do I know what size trap?

Answer- Find the tunnel, which means digging down past the mound and get to the tunnel that is parallel to the surface. That is the animals run or main tunnel. That is where you will be putting the trap. The jaws of the trap when set, should fit snug into the tunnel. It is better to get a slightly larger trap than your tunnel size than too small. Make sure the jaws are not resting at a bend in the tunnel, because then the animal can get around the trap as well.

Question- I set two traps one in each direction, and the animals covered them with dirt, and the trap wasn't sprung. What am I doing wrong?

Answer- The animal is getting around the trap, or the animal is using a different tunnel that leads to the same mound. You will need to dig around and find the alternative tunnel that the animal is using and set a trap in that tunnel as well.

Q
Does this product come with 3 different sizes of traps?

We own 14 acres of rolling pasture, in northern Washington state, in the mountains, the land is covered by large Gopher hills, and i mean covered, i understand that different areas have different size Gophers! Have no idea of the size's of the the Gophers but will assume they are varied! Your traps appear to be the best for us to use as we have pets and will have farm animals, want a set of traps that include small, medium and large traps, does this set have that?

A
The Deluxe Kit-3 pack comes in 3 sizes but each pack comes with 3 of the same size trap. Here is a question we have been asked before regarding deciding trap size. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
