Anyone who has ever said, "You're making a mountain out of a mole hill" does not understand the frustration, angst and despair moles inflict on homeowners. These underground critters can turn a beautifully manicured lawn into something resembling a war zone, seemingly overnight.
Contrary to popular belief, moles are not rodents. They are insectivores. These small mammals spend their entire lives below the surface of the ground, tearing up suburban lawns and gardens in an endless quest for food.
When using a mole trap to capture moles, it is not necessary to use any type of bait. When a trap is properly placed and set in the ground on an active tunnel, the mole will trip the trap as it moves through the tunnel in search of food.
