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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
