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.

This is the trap that you want. It will get them easily. The instructions could be a little more clear as to how to properly bed the trap into the run.

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 ??

Hard to set
By Numbercruncher on May 21, 2012
I have four different types of traps, and this one is the hardest to set.The Talpirid is the same basic concept, but much easier (and less dangerous) to use.
proper setting of trap
By Jim on June 16, 2012
I have had difficulty setting the trap. Mounding beneath the trip lever is critical-i'm still experimenting with the technique. I agree the instructions could be clearer. After 4 days of monitoring, I have caight 1 mole.
Out O Sight trap for moles
By Jude on September 23, 2012
Like this concept, but, I don't have enough strength to set it. Have the same style in a very old trap that is smaller and more light weight but two legs are broken. Is there something out there that's smaller and lighter?
By Dayton on October 6, 2012
I haven't put them to use yet, but my friend swears by them. As soon as the rains start, I'll be able to identify the fresh activity.
Great once you figure out how to use it
By Ian on May 29, 2014
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!
