How it Works Consumers love the "Original Mole Eliminator" because it is easy to set, utilizing a simple foot stepping motion to safely set, underground,
across a mole tunnel. When a mole returns through a burrowed
tunnel it raises the trigger device and the spring-loaded
jaws snap shut, ensuring a quick and humane kill. No bait
is used and there are no holes to dig. Complete operating
instructions are included with each trap.
makes this a better trap?
This is the easiest trap to set on the market today. Just use your foot and step
down. Jaws are opened and the trap is set underground. No fussing with setting triggers and harpoons and
risking injury to fingers !
ineffective methods and things that we've heard don't work...
Fumigation products are readily available,
but difficult to set properly, and because of the complexity
of mole tunnels, rarely succeed at full control. Some toxic
fumigants are potentially dangerous and require license
Repellants/spraying the lawn with castor
bean oil. Limited effectiveness and repeat
treatments are necessary. Keep in mind that castor beans are
poisonous to humans. The
poison Ricin is derived from castor beans. Grub
shown only limited effectiveness and must be constantly re-applied. Grubs
are only a small part of a moles diet, less than 1/4,
which consists of primarily of earthworms and other insects.
Eliminating grubs takes a great deal of time and patience.
The moles may even become more active as they search
for alternative food sources.
bait. Moles are insectivores and don't
feed on bulbs or baits. Many insecticides are also harmful
to people, pets, and non-target wildlife.
and vibration devices, one even calls itself a
molechaser and that is exactly what you end up doing. Chasing
the moles around your yard. These devices attempt
to repel moles by creating sound/vibrations that moles find
irritating. Most consumers find that moles are highly adaptable
creatures. They just end up moving around the yard or deeper
remains the most effective method of removing moles.
gum myth is a favorite.
There are numerous stories about placing sticks of chewing
gum in the mole tunnels and holes. It had to be a specific
brand though. The moles allegedly eat the gum and it binds
them up and they die of constipation. This has
not been proven but points should be awarded for creativity.
