  • For a small garden (approx. 30’ x 15’) with a few mole hills, you are best off with 2.
  • Medium to large gardens (approx. 60’ x 60’) will benefit from 3 or more, as this will increase your chances over a larger trapping area.

    I bought your mole trap over a year ago to catch a mole on the village green.I caught it immediately.This week we had a mole at work on the edge of our bowling green in Hovingam.Much to the amazement of our members, I was again successful overnight,saving the bowling surface.A great product.

    Thank you so much for producing a mole trap for the 21 st century that is user friendly for small female hands. I saw it advertised in “Private Eye” and sceptically thought I would give it a try even though it would probably be a waste of money. To my delight I have caught my first ever mole, not as quickly as promised but that’s ok. In despair over my mole problem I took a course to enable me to gas them but this is an ineffective and very expensive method which I will ditch now I finally have a trap that I can use without fearing for my fingers.
    I hope you do terribly well with your excellent product. I will be singing it’s praises to any one with a mole problem.

    What a brilliant device. Caught the ‘little devil’, that had been ruining my lawn for ages, at only the second attempt. An excellent product. Well worth the small investment.

    Thank you so much.

    I bought this trap last week, after finding a mound of earth in my lawn. Set it yesterday, and it caught the mole this morning. Absolutely brilliant. I really didn’t expect it to work, but certainly not with the first try. I have used several methods at my old house but nothing as efficient as this little machine. Thank you so much.

    Absolutely brilliant! Having been plagued by moles for many years I bought two of your traps a few months ago and have since caught seven moles, almost all within 24 hours of setting the trap. My garden is currently mole free! I am very much hoping that you are now going to invent something to stop them coming into the garden in the first place!

    Successfully killed 2 moles in 1 day! hopefully thats my mole problem solved!

    Either I was very lucky or your trap is miraculous! I have about an acre of garden and bought 2 traps. There were 2 separate areas with most mole hills. I chose one of these areas and put 2 traps down. Got a very large mole in one of the traps next morning. Had a mole catcher in a few years ago and this DIY option was so much more convenient and cheaper. Thank you.

    Utilizing your excellent Beagle Mole Trap purchased last year I have successfully trapped 7 moles. Whilst they are dear little animals they sadly make such a mess. Rather than find the run I simply remove the soil from the mole hill to reveal the run underneath. After placing the set Beagle Mole trap next to the mole run I cover the trap. The Beagle product is so easy to use with the advantage of a wider entry into the trap before the mole hits the release mechanism. Fingers crossed I hope in time to have a garden free of underground interference. No doubt I shall be back to buy a 2nd trap.

    Have just received my new trap now with a red plunger. Like it a lot – suprising how much easier it is to see the trap in my lawn. great improvement.well done!

    Thank you! Your traps do exactly what they say they do! Read the instructions, that are very clear, and set the traps and your problems and anxieties are soon behind you. Delighted it does what it says it will do on the label and more so that it is a brilliant British product. Feel free to use this letter as an unsolicited big thank you

    I bought this mole trap from you a few weeks ago and thought I would contact you to let you know I have had a lot of success with it. Moles have been driving me mad by digging up the lawn. I have always used scissor traps before, but was finding the moles were filling them with soil or digging around them. Since using this trap I have caught several. Thank you very much for helping me get the boss of the moles

    Dear Beagle, I have to say I wasnt sure about the new red plunger initially but actually now that I have used them a couple of times I can totally see the sense in it. I think it looks great and much easier to see when the trap has been triggered. The traps as always are well built, very easy to use – what a brilliant design. wouldnt use any other type of trap now!

    We bought 2 of the Easyset Mole Traps last year as we were plagued with moles – we had tried several methods before without much success – until we tried yours! They have worked a treat and we have been successful every time we’ve used them. We even lent them to a neighbour and he was also successful, so much so that this current order for 4 is in fact for him!

The campaign against moles can be tiresome. As with any conflict, you need to be sure of your tactics and deploy your campaign with skill and finesse if you are to succeed. Here’s how to increase your chances of success, in three simple steps. For the fastest results, set multiple traps in the same area. No previous experience or nasty chemicals are necessary.

Locate the run

First, select two relatively fresh mole hills that are between 1m and 3m apart. Gently push a probe into the ground, prodding at 3-5cm intervals in a straight line perpendicular to the line joining the two mole hills, and 50cm from one of the mole hills. When you hit a run it will be obvious as the probe will ‘give’ suddenly.

Set the EasySet Mole Trap

Use a small spade to dig out a section of turf the same size as the trap, making sure that the hole is aligned with the run. Use a small trowel to clear any loose earth from the run and then tamp down the base of the run with a tamper. Arm the EasySet trap by pushing the plunger down. Place the trap in the hole, carefully pressing down on the casing and plunger until the serrated wire hoops are seated firmly into the base of the tunnel.

Await success

Ensure that any gaps around the sides of the casing are sealed with earth since any gaps will admit light and an air flow that the mole may sense. Remember, there is no need to ‘bury’ the trap. Before leaving the trap, make sure that it is well marked and is not a hazard to anybody else. Check the trap every 24 hours. If it has been filled with earth, clear it out and reset it. If the trap is empty, reset it. If, after 72 hours, you have not caught anything, move the trap to another location. If you have caught a mole, bury him there and fill the hole with turf. Continue to set the trap until no more mole activity is seen.

Watch our helpful step-by-step video on how to use the EasySet Mole Trap.

Your EasySet Mole Trap is a precision made item, and should give you many years of untroubled use. However, just as with any other valuable tool, regular cleaning and exercise will ensure it remains in tip-top form.

The main issue with any subterranean equipment is the chance of it becoming jammed or damaged from the ingress of moisture, soil, grit and stones. Even when not being used, dust can gather in the trap’s mechanism and affect its operation, and we therefore recommend that you follow these care instructions:

Before each use

  • Check that the trap triggers easily and quickly. If it does not, it can sometimes help to repeatedly depress and release the plunger to ‘exercise’ the springs and effectively loosen things up a little.

After each use

  • Thoroughly clean your trap by washing out in a bucket of warm soapy water, then rinse.
  • Repeatedly depress and release the plunger to ensure it triggers easily and quickly.
  • Allow to dry and store in a dry, dust-free environment.

Yes! We are very proud that the best thing about our trap is that absolutely anyone can use it and can successfully rid their gardens of unwanted moles.

The innovative design makes it the simplest trap on the market to use. You just have to depress the ‘plunger’ to set the trap, position it in the mole run, and off you go!

For a small garden with a few mole hills, you are best off with 2.

Medium to large gardens will benefit from 3 or more, as this will increase your chances over a larger trapping area.

For very large gardens, golf-courses, or fields, think in the region of 5-10 traps.

We find that many of our customers have used the traditional traps in the past but they are no longer catching the moles. Our trap is often more effective because the moles are less likely to detect the crimped wire hoops and there is little or no risk of it becoming jammed or blocked by soil, which is so often the problem with other traps.
We do recommend that in order to keep the trap in tip top condition it is regularly cleaned in warm soapy water and rinsed thoroughly. Then ‘exercise’ the mechanism a couple of times before using again. Please read the full care instructions in the Help tab on the EasySet Mole Trap page.
It is possible to catch moles with nothing but your EasySet Mole Trap and a regular garden spade, however trapping moles is a totally different procedure to any other form of animal trapping. You have to find the mole tunnel, excavate a hole, and effectively bury the trap. At Beagle we do believe that this does require some essential supporting equipment in addition to the traps.

Firstly you need the essential probe to find the line of the tunnel…

Then you need a spade – to excavate and expose the line of the tunnel…

Then you need a small trowel to clear the tunnel of loose soil and prepare it to receive the trap…

Now you might say I’ve got all this gear and can find it in my shed, but on the other hand is it suited to the job? The probe might be an old metal clothes hanger straightened out. The spade might be too wide and the trowel the wrong shape for poking up the tunnel and getting loose soil out…

Here at Beagle Products we have been thinking about this and have designed some gear especially to accompany our acclaimed EasySet Mole Trap. We believe there is nothing quite like having the right gear to do the job.

There are many myths that say such things as “you must not touch the trap with your hands”, “you must bury a new trap in the ground for three days before you catch moles”, “you must wear gloves”, and “you must not store the traps near oil, petrol, etc.”

All of this is complete rubbish. Moles do have a good sense of smell, but scientific research has shown that these smells will not deter them. The only scents that they will avoid are those of other moles or those of predators such as weasels.

Many people claim that there is no need for traps as sonar devices, plants or even caster oil can repel moles. However each of these approaches is fundamentally flawed and unfortunately will not rid your garden of these pests!

Sonar devices may deter moles initially however their range is very limited (only around 10m) and moles often return once they get used to the sound.

The plant in question is Euphorbia Lathyris. Research at the University of California has shown that plants have no effect on moles; rather they simply tend to grow in soil that does not provide a good habitat for moles.

Using mole smokes to line the tunnel with castor oil or other unpleasant substances may cause the mole to stop using these tunnels, however this will usually lead only to another digging spree as the mole digs alternative tunnels around the now uninhabitable ones. This will simply lead to even more mole hills.

Our traps have crimped killing bars for increased point pressure, to ensure a quick clean kill every time, therefore the mole is not subjected to any prolonged suffering.
