The Beagle EasySet Mole Trap is a simple and effective way to get rid of moles in your garden. A single 'plunger' action is used to arm it and with little effort the trap is in place and ready to work. This is an ideal trap for the home user as the setting is simple compared to conventional mole traps. Users report catches in as little as 2 hours whilst many more claim at least or two moles caught with 24 hours.
The campaign against moles can be tiresome. As with any conflict, you need to be sure of your tactics and deploy your campaign with skill and finesse if you are to succeed. Here's how to increase your chances of success, in three simple steps. For the fastest results, set multiple traps in the same area. No previous experience or nasty chemicals are necessary.
Locate the run by selecting two relatively fresh mole hills that are between 1m and 3m apart. Gently push a probe into the ground, prodding at 3-5cm intervals in a straight line perpendicular to the line joining the two mole hills, and 50cm from one of the mole hills. When you hit a run it will be obvious as the probe will 'give' suddenly.
To install the EasySet Mole Trap use a small spade to dig out a section of turf the same size as the trap, making sure that the hole is aligned with the run. Use a small trowel to clear any loose earth from the run and then tamp down the base of the run with a tamper. Arm the EasySet trap by pushing the plunger down. Place the trap in the hole, carefully pressing down on the casing and plunger until the serrated wire hoops are seated firmly into the base of the tunnel.
Await success but first ensure that any gaps around the sides of the casing are sealed with earth since any gaps will admit light and an air flow that the mole may sense. Remember, there is no need to 'bury' the trap. Before leaving the trap, make sure that it is well marked and is not a hazard to anybody else. Check the trap every 24 hours. If it has been filled with earth, clear it out and reset it. If the trap is empty, reset it. If, after 72 hours, you have not caught anything, move the trap to another location. If you have caught a mole, bury him there and fill the hole with turf. Continue to set the trap until no more mole activity is seen.
