Mole Wars

Posted by on May 14th, 2010

While it’s nice to have some open ground behind our yard, that means we have a quasi-infinite supply of moles that move in from the trees and grass behind us and start tunneling in our yard. Various baits and traps never seemed to work very well until I found the “Easy Set” Mole Eliminator trap. This scissors-style trap seems to work much better than the old-fashioned “bed of nails” traps.

So far this spring, six moles down but there are lots more where those came from, so it’s a continuing process. Trap one, another one moves in. At least I have them (mostly) pushed back to the edge of the yard where they don’t do too much damage before they are “eliminated.”
