This post could be controversial for some people. Especially animal lovers. I am one of those animal lovers and would love to see everyone of them in their own environment well and happy.
There is sometimes though that things have to get grim. Sometimes these cute critters, become dangerous. For example a mole.
We live in the country area and in nature. We see deer and squirrels, birds and rabbits. Stray cats, dogs, raccoons and yes, even snakes.
One thing we see a lot of is Moles. We don’t normally see them, but instead see where they are tearing up our yard. Do you realize how dangerous this can be? It isn’t just cosmetic destruction, but walking around the yard and tripping in one of their holes can become dangerous.
This is why we decided to try out the deadset mole trap.
We have placed it out in the yard and sadly when Mr Mole decides to dig his way up – he will get a pat on the head. This is very quick for the mole. It is also safe for your pets and children since the spikes are under the ground.
This is the basics of it.
Facts about this trap:
the Easiest-to-Set Trap…Ever
Anyone who has ever struggled to set a mole trap will appreciate how effortless it is to activate the Deadset Mole Trap. The trap boasts an ergonomically designed, easy grasp handle and an oversized activator plate that can be pushed into the tunnel by hand or foot, making it the easiest-to-set trap on the market.
Precision-built Triggering System for Quick Kill
The Deadset contains a patented, precision-built triggering system that is activated by the slightest movement. When underground movement is detected, the spears are thrust into the ground, quickly killing the mole.
Ready, Set, Go
The Deadset Mole Trap comes fully assembled and ready-to-use.
Trap Like a Pro
Before setting the trap, water the lawn to bring the moles 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 plunger-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.
