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.TrapsPoisonsGranular & Spray RepellentsSonic Spike RepellentsMode of ActionEase of UseUsage InstructionsSafety InformationReusableWeather ResistantBatteries Required30-Day WarrantyKills; Spears or pinches the mole or gopherModerateLocate active tunnel, place and set trapNo chemicals or poisons, use with caution around children and petsKills; Poisons the mole or gopherEasyLocate active tunnel, place bait in tunnelDo not use around children and petsRepels; Castor oil contaminates the tunnel and the mole or gopher's food sourceEasyLocate active area, spray/shake directly from container, water-in with hoseNo chemicals or poisons, safe to use around children and petsRepels; Sonic pulses repel the mole and gopherEasyLocate active tunnel, place spike near tunnelNo chemicals or poisons, safe to use around children and pets

Review RateWaste of money and time.
Bought the Deadset Mole Trap for $24.99. Expensive for me as only SS Retirement only income. Waste of money. The trap will not go off. Actually, almost impossible to get to go off just trying to make it work. Watched the video to learn how to use it. Waste of time if the trap just does not work. How do I get a refund?Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDon't waste your money!
Don't waste your money on these traps. I bought two, set them only 3 times and now one of them will not latch at all. They need to go back and re-engineer the latch mechanism.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
To set the trap successfully, the spring must be in the proper position. Please locate the tab at the bottom of the spring and make sure that the spring is on the outside of the metal tab.

Review RateGreat product
I purchased one of your traps today and set it in an active tunnel when I got home. I want it my house five minutes and looked out our front window and saw it was sprung. I went outside and checked under the trap and there was a dead mole! Five minutes!! Great product!
Review RateTrap trip mechanism is too stiff
Trigger mechanism is too stiff for mole to trip. I've had this trap for two years and have not caught a mole. When using a screwdriver to trip the trap I have to apply considerable pressure to get it to release. More pressure I think that a mole can provide.Response From Victor®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Moleman--09/01/2017--I bought the trap at Ace Hardware hoping to catch mole , but after trying multi time was not able to get plate to work with catch. I will most likely never purchase again, you needed to go back and redesign the catch to hold plate. I should had never had this much trouble, since your box said incredibly east to set.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.
When setting this trap, make sure the spring is in the proper position. While holding the trap with the release lever on the right, you will see a small vertical tab sticking up from the center of the horizontal plate. If the spring is behind this tab, the trap will not set.

Review RateDollar Store Quality
These are not tested before they ship. only 1 of 3 actually stay locked. I mean, this is the purpose of the devise! The locking mechanism needs to be thrown away and a new design. Reliability is poor. Thought I was buying a reputable product, but feels like something from the dollar store.Response From Victor®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Must have smart moles. Have three traps set and moved to new hills everyday and haven't got one yet after at least weeks!!Response From Victor®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback. For best results, we recommend placing the traps along an active mole run. To determine which runs are active, we recommend poking several small holes along each tunnel. Check back in 24-48 hours to see if any of the holes have been repaired. If so, this tunnel has recently been in use and would be a good location for a trap.
