Exclamation Moles?

Good grief!
Looks like we're going to have to do something about it.
Time to contact the varmint cong!

Default Re: Moles?

These are pretty easy to use and work well for me:
https://cinchtraps.com/

They just don't last more than a year outside unless you take really good care of them.

The instructions say to dig down and place them in the ground but I usually just rake the dirt off the freshest mounds and open up the hole to the tunnel and cram the neck of the trap down in the hole. Seems to get them good enough and you don't have to do all the digging.

Thanks PB... I'll show this to my son.
They only seem to be on the front part of the property near the road.

my shotgun trap works fine but public places or city would be a problem.

Nuke 'em from orbit. That's the only way to be sure you got them.
