When is the best time to trap moles?
Spring is the best time to trap moles because newly-made surface tunnels are easy to spot. Moles can be trapped during any season except in very cold or dry weather.
How many traps do I need?
A common mistake is not to use enough traps. If you have three active tunnels in the yard, use three traps. Traps are usually more cost effective than most mole chemicals, poisons or noisy contraptions.
Where do I put the trap?
First you must identify an "active" tunnel. To do this you can flatten an area a couple inches wide in each tunnel (this easily done by simply stepping on the tunnel with your heel). Tunnels that are "rebuilt" are active. ***Follow the manufacturers illustrated instructions for setting the trap properly and safely.***
The presence of moles will be indicated by mounds of soil created as they construct their tunnels.
To locate tunnels in frequent use, clear away a mound of soil and probe for the opening usually a short passage that leads down a few inches to the main tunnel. Place mole traps in this tunnel.
To Place the Mole Traps:
Dig a hole down to main tunnel. Make certain that hole is no larger than the mole trap and that it is aligned with straight section of the tunnel.
Build a mound in center of hole using loose soil.
Place mole traps in the hole, pushing down firmly until it rests on mound. Fill in tunnel entrances with soil. Release safety hook.
NOTE: Place a box or board over trap to avoid danger to children and non-target animals.
So went about two weeks with no moles in the trap - changed the set tactic and got three moles in 4 days. So what tactic did I use? Locate the runs - with the trap set push the jaws down into the soil without prepping or digging. Make sure you support the plate and actually press the plate down into the soil approx 1/2 inch. Worked great!
I tried the victor out o sight mole trap but this mole was smarter than I was . He kept covering the trap with dirt preventing the trigger from springing the trap. I had to hire a professional to get rid of the pest. Anybody want to buy a mole trap ??
If Victor Out-O-Site Mole Traps become rusty does that diminish the effectiveness?
If so, what is best way to clean rust off? Is soaking them in muiratic acid (sp?) a good option.
We recommend cleaning Victor Out-O-Sight Mole Traps after each use and allowing them to dry before storing so they do not get rusty. Vinegar or baking soda paste can be used to clean rust off most metal objects.
