I have a 1 acre lot with mole infestations in 3 areas.

1st. I tried the "noise emiting stakes" to be a little humane. Essentially they worked as an inviting drum beat to entertain and attract the moles.

2nd. I tried the traps that are "underground" so I could mow over them. An engineer was required to dig the required perfectly shaped hole, then only a stampede of horses would set them off.

3rd. The 490 Mechanical Plunger Mole Trap. I got 8 of them. I don't have time to figure out which tunnels are "active" so I bought a bunch and put them on every tunnel I see. I had 1 mole on the first day. I have had a few of them go off but I never found a carcass. I have new thick sod so its hard to pull the mole to the surface.

I think new traps need to be "broken in" to make them a little more sensative.

I'll try to update again in the spring when the moles are active again. (Indiana)

Pesky moles all over my lawn. This trap works fine. My son has "the touch". He's gotten several of them.
They say Grub X is the answer. I tried for years, spent $$, now it's war. LOL. Anyway the trap works.
What you need to know is,
1. It's best to borrow/rent a roller and flatten all the mole trails.
2. Watch the moles daily. Each day, walk on the trails. Choose the most used trails.
Set the trap:
1. Flatten a small section of the trail, maybe 4", as wide as your shoe.
2. Push the trap into the ground into this flattened area.
3. Before setting it, work the spikes up and down to ensure no roots or stones slow them down.
4. Set the trap. Watch your fingers, they can "bite".
5. Ensure the trigger plate is extremely close to or actually touching the ground.

For best results, I'd suggest buying at least 2 of these. I have an acre and that's the minumum. 4 would work better.

I bought four of these traps. They wwork great. The only problem is the spikes are starting to rust. They must be made of steel. They are a little more heavy duty than the Sweeney's 9011 mole traps but the Sweeney's mole traps have stainless steel spikes that won't rust.

By Keith Sr Holcomb on October 20, 2010

Mole traps arrived and one box was open. This trap had a bad rivet in the latching lever (latch flopped around so it would not latch). I repaired rivet and works fine now. The other unopened box had the safety chain missing, I had some chain close to what was on the other so I made one. Poor quality control? Other wise I hope they will work and last a long time. Kind of cheaply made compaired to the mole traps my father had. I know that maybe I could have sent them back but I can't wait any longer to rid my yard of these moles. They are out and set hope they work as advertized Quality is lacking but price wise I'll find out later if they were worth the money I spent.
