Spare a thought for the poor old mole……


Some very interesting letters in The Guardian Newspaper recently about mole catching.

Firstly, we would like to assure our customers that our trap is one of the most humane on the market as our strong spring mechanism ensures that there is a clean, swift kill every time and therefore the mole does not suffer. The so called ‘humane’ traps which capture the mole live cause much more suffering as the mole is often left trapped for long periods of time causing huge distress and often a prolonged death.

We also were very interested to hear about the fact that until recently mole catchers sold mole skins to plumbers who used them to wipe and shape the hot lead on pipe repairs, thus producing a velvet finish to their work. Never heard of this before!

‘The best trap for domestic home use’


We were very pleased to see our EasySet Mole Trap chosen as one of the top 6 best mole traps by the gardening website, and named as the best trap for domestic home use.

Please see the full review here:

They said “We really like the Beagle Easyset Mole Trap and its ideal for home use and is, as you would think, by far the easest mole trap to set. You don’t get much simpler than pressing down the trigger.

Our research has shown that its very effective and is probably the best choice for someone with the odd mole in their garden to catch.

Brilliant design, very effective at killing moles.”

and concluded:

“If you want a simple, easy to set option, to catch a few moles from your own garden, then the Beagle Easyset Mole trap is probably the best option for you.”

We certainly agree with all of that!
