I have a large yard with several moles. I called a mole/pest removal company. I hired them and paid 200.00 to have about a dozen traps set (yes, they used these exact traps which is why I ordered some for myself).

Anyway, they had 30 days to trap moles in my yard. They also charged 69.00 for each mole they caught. They got 5 moles in that time.

That may not seem like many, but if you read about moles, you'll find out they are not like mice or rats. They breed slowly and live alone. They reproduce once per year and maybe have 2-4 offspring of which maybe half will live in natural conditions. When you see an area or network of mole tunnels (your grass pushed up), that's just one mole... If you study the tunnels, you'll usually see it comes in from the edge of your yard where there may be more moisture (forest or wild area).

You just need to look at the branching of the tunnels and find a few areas where you can guess the mole may be re-using that section to go back and forth.

Once you locate a good spot, gently push the grass down to collapse the tunnel, and set the trap. Be sure to set the trap so the spikes that go in the ground (not the spikes that kill the mole) are not right in the middle of the mole tunnel. The idea (obviously) is to set the trap in an area the mole will try to use again. When the mole tries to fix the tunnel, bam!

I just trapped my first mole today. I saw the spring of the trap was down, took the trap up, and the mole was dead underneath.

This trap does work to kill the mole. You just need to put it in the right place and set it correctly.

The guy who worked for the pest control company told me most of this and it really makes a difference.

I'm here to buy a few more traps.

I've been using mole traps of this kind for over 50 years and have killed many hundreds of moles. I have used Victor traps and cheaper traps. They all kill moles but I prefer Victor because of the design. The "legs" that hold the trap in the ground have barbs on them to keep the trap from jumping out of the ground when the trap is triggered. The trap is made from heavy guage steel and the spikes are heavy guage and very sharp. The spikes are sharpened diagonally on the tips so they cut like a knife. The trap is easy to set.....takes just a couple minutes, just follow the simple directions. If people are missing moles with this trap, it is probably because they are not setting the trap in deep enough or are not making sure the spikes can travel freely down into the ground when the trap is sprung. A couple of tips: After locating the run, step on a spot to flatten the run, then set the trap to straddle the flattened run. Push the "legs" of the trap into the dirt as far as they will go until the trigger touches the flattened part of the run that you stepped on. Then (important)before you set the tripping mechanism, push the spikes up and down through the dirt a few times until they travel freely. I have caught several moles this week and will get another one this evening. This mole trap is well-made (in USA), easy to use and will definitely kill moles if it is set correctly. I have 9 traps and set them in clusters but you can kill many moles with just one trap...........it just takes longer.

In soft, loose, or sandy ground, the spikes might cause the entire trap to jump up out of the ground when the spring is sprung (every action has an oposite and equal reaction). I drilled two holes in the top of the arms of the trap, then used small string to stake the traps into the ground. Then be sure to spring the trap several times to be sure the spikes drop freely. With this minor retrofitting, the traps work great. I have killed three moles in a week. Be sure to follow the instructions from the other reviewers about finding active tunnels. That is important.

I thought I would be throwing more money down a hole, but this product works great. I have killed 4 moles the last 3 months. The key is to figure out the tunnels they use. Over a few days push down all the raised areas in the yard and see which ones the moles push back up. Now you found their highway. If you have hard soil or roots, before you set the trap. Push the spikes of the trap into ground several times where the trap is going to be. This way when the mole triggers the trap the spikes will travel down easy otherwise the spikes may hit something hard and force the trap out of the ground without hitting the target.

I tried everything to get my mole to leave peacefully. I sprayed castor oil, used mole repellent pellets, etc. He might leave for a week or two, but then he would be back.

I purchased the Victor Mole Trap, read the instructions, studied a bit on the web, and rid my yard of moles in three days. GREAT product.

The previous reviewers don't understand that you're not really trying to "trap" the mole with the spikes. In all likelihood you will maim the mole and he will go off to die. You won't really know whether you got him until you notice that no new tunnels are being built. And you do need to pay attention to your yard before setting the trap. Figure out where the mole likes to travel by flattening his tunnels and watching where they reappear. Try to think like the mole and you'll get him.
