Most Helpful Customer Reviews
These are very well made and durable, but did not suite my needs.
I got these traps based on some online comments describing wild success. However, I did not fully understand how they work when I ordered them. They work by cutting two slots in the tunnel from above. You lower the trap into the slots and it rests on top of the tunnel. The trap has two wire loops that are supposed to reach to the bottom of the tunnel and a trigger that rests on top of a section of the tunnel that you collapse.
Unfortunately in my yard the tunnels are not visible, only the hills. Also the critter needs to actively digging to set off the trigger (reopening the tunnel that was collapsed). I tried this trap, but I had to dig holes to find the tunnel. I put the trap in the hole in line with the tunnel, but had no success.
I ordered a "cinch trap" from Gophers limited instead. These work by putting the trap into the tunnel opening at the hill. Then the critter sets it...
As my review title indicates, I have tried just about every other mole trap including poisons and other mechanical traps. All I did was follow the directions and had a fresh kill every morning for a week. I loved it so much I bought one for a friend and even left my original with a note for the new owners of my house when we moved to a less wooded area. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.
I used this quite successfully over the past eight months or so. Got nine moles last fall and six this spring so far.
In order to use it, you find an active mole trail. Tamp down the trail. Then you need to use a hoe to make two parallel slits in the ground that the trap's two "hoops" will go down. Charge the spring, insert the hoops into the slits in the ground and ensure that the trip lever is flush with the ground.
It can really work quite well. What can go wrong?
1) It requires a fair amount of hand strength to charge the spring. If you don't have that hand strength, this won't be good for you. 2) You need to have an appropriate-sized hoe and need to jam it down adequately deep. This may take more force than lightweight folks are able to generate. If you don't have adequate slits in the ground, you can't use this trap. 3) Sometimes, despite your best efforts, the mole just goes through the trap without tripping it...
