DAILYKENN.com --I may discovered the best mole trap ever. So I ordered two of them.
Grub killer didn't work. The idea was to decimate the mole's source of food: Grubs. It turns out that moles prefer worms. Grubs are their "side dish." Insecticide also failed for the same reason. Mole repellent? That didn't work either. Nor did
flooding the tunnel with a garden hose. Moles actually prefer moist soil.
You can find the the Wire Tek 1001 EasySet Mole Eliminator Trap on Amazon.com here ► Last I checked, the traps are selling at $66 for two. This particular seller's offer has 2,346 reviews (someone's selling a ton of these!) with 4.3 out of 5 stars. Very positive.
Other traps work, but the very best seems to be the Wire Tek 1001 EasySet Mole Eliminator Trap. It's easy to set, compared to the tried-and-true Victor Plunger style trap. I have a Victor trap in my yard even as I write. The plunger style has literally been around for about 100 years and works well. However, it can be challenging to set. It also has fewer positive reviews than the Wire Tak 1001.
So, the war on lawn moles moves forward. I just placed another order for two more traps. Once the moles are gone, I'll store the traps in my garden shed and keep them for years to come, always on the ready for the next mole invasion.*
