Revenge Mole Trap offers a fast and easy way of getting rid of moles. This trap is specially designed to effectively catch moles to prevent them from damaging lawns and gardens. It is very simple to use and it guarantees to quickly eliminate those pesky animals. It also provides an economical mole control as it allows you to reuse the traps over and over again. Each box contains one trap.
Determine mole tunnels that are active in the target area. They can be identified by flattening out the tunnels and the adjacent mounds of exposed dirt, then wait for 24 hours and recheck. Tunnels and mounds that are reopened are active and are good place to start. Tunnels are generally identified by a long raised area of turf, which is usually located near a mound of dirt. These mounds of dirt that are raised up are "intersections" and areas where the moles can reach the surface. An ideal location for a trap is on a tunnel between two dirt mounds that have been identified as active.
Flatten the roof of the tunnel using your hand or foot, flatten area a little larger than the size of the trip pan. Be careful that you don't completely destroy the tunnel, the mole still has to use it, but flatten enough so that the mole will have to do some work to continue along the tunnel.
Center the trap over the tunnel, with the trip pan directly over the flattened area you created in Step 2. The ground stakes need to go on each side of the tunnel. Push down on the trap until the trip pan is contacting the flattened area.
Next, preset the plunger posts, this makes the trap work more efficiently. You can do this by moving the setting arm out of the way, (rotate it 90 degrees away from the trap), then hold the trap in place, pull up and down to the T-handle several times until the plunger posts slide easily in and out of the turf.
To set the trap, move the setting arm back into position and allow the trip pan to lock into place as you pull up on the T-handle. Make sure the trip pan is sitting in the flattened area of the tunnel, you can do this by applying some downward pressure, but do it slowly and carefully as you may trigger the trip pan. There is a chain attached to the T-handle, this can be laced thru the safety hole to prevent the trap from triggering. Be sure to remove the safety chain so the trap will work properly. Once the trap is set, leave the area and check the trap on a daily basis.
