Effective tips to help win the war on moles
Before setting the trap, water the lawn to bring the mole's food source (earthworms and bugs) up near the ground surface. The next step is to locate active tunnels. Flatten tunnels by walking on them and then wait a day. If the tunnel rises up, it's active. This is where the trap should be placed.
When setting a plunge-style mole trap, make sure the spears can move freely through the ground when the trap is triggered. Test the Deadset® by pulling up on the handle to set the trap and then pushing down on the trap release lever located on the side of the trap. This will drive the spears into the ground. Raise and lower the trap until the spears are unobstructed by roots or rocks. Always use the release lever to trip the trap before moving it to another location.

Review RateDead Set == Dead Mole
I purchased 6 of these units because moles were literally destroying my yard. I live on 3 acres with 1/2 of that woods so moles are pretty common in the wooded area and frequently migrate to the yard. A professional extermination company charges either $300 bucks for a couple of months of trapping or $60 per mole caught. My purchase of 6 traps cost me about $90 bucks. I set the traps and immediately caught two moles and then it got dry and activity stopped for several weeks with no new catches. After a 4 day rain I redeployed the traps on new active runs and within 48 hours I caught two more. The traps work great and are easy to set and seem to work well. Here are some random thoughts. 1. I have read some complaints about the plastic prongs not being sturdy, if you follow the instructions and set the traps in moist ground (or water before deploying them to encourage the moles to seek food near the surface the traps can be inserted into the ground easily. 2. Out of 6 traps 2 of them are difficult to set. The trigger mechanism does not catch easily when pulling up on the plunger. I have found that lifting or jiggling the release lever helps the trap pan to catch the latch. Some times on the two hair trigger traps out of the 6 might take a dozen attempts to arm the trap. 3. It is imperative that you smash the mole run down at the location you set the trap and that you get the trap pan pushed flat against the ground as it is the vibration and movement of the pan when the mole tries to clear its run that triggers the plunger. 4. If you want to verity that you have caught the mole you really need to dig up the run about 4 inches on each side of the trap as just pulling the spikes out of the ground will not result in any confirmation that you caught anything as any blood will be wiped from the spikes by the dirt. If you are squeamish or just don't want to look at a dead mole then just pull the trap out of the ground and redeploy in another area of the run. It is likely you will get no further activity on that run as moles are loners except for the spring during mating season. Thus, there is usually only one in a given small area. If the redeployed trap does not trigger in a couple of days and you see no more activity in the runs then you can be pretty sure you got him the first time. Leaving it in the run is just like burying it in the back yard. it will decompose in a few weeks. 5. I really like that you can tell at a glance if the trap is triggered. 6. The spring and plunging mechanism seems pretty strong but you want to make sure you plunge the spikes into the ground several times when setting the trap to make sure that the spikes will travel easily into the earth to do their work. I could not be happier with this purchase. The traps really do work as advertised if you follow the recommended instructions (there is a good video on the manufacture's web site). I would definitely recommend these traps and I would also recommend that you purchase more than 1 as the price of 3 of these is cheaper than paying an extermination company to catch a single mole. I also recommend more than one as I like to set 2 or 3 traps in a long run just to increase the chance of getting one quickly. Purchase these traps and you won't be disappointed.

Review Ratenot yetI have bought 5 of these traps so far ( 1 didnt work ) and still no results the jury is still out whether they work or not as of right now NO
Review RateSo Easy to use
These mole traps are so easy to set. Just push them into the ground stand on the tabs and pull up. Easier than the metal ones which had to be preset before putting in the ground and I didn't have the strength to set them but these are SOOOOOO Easy & I highly recommend !!! Now it's time to catch that pesky critter.
Review RateVery poor qualityBought three traps all three are extremely tough to set. The catch for the trigger device does not open far enough to set the latch. Much jerking around to get set not for woosys !! Then they set so light they trip without a critter doing it!!! Maybe a bad batch but I think they are very poor construction to begin with. Just saying!!! Back to the old V clamp trap a nd lawn chair with shot gun holder!!!Response From Victor®Susan : Consumer Relations RepresentativeThank you for taking the time to share this valuable feedback.
