Does any one use the dead mole(s) for bait of any sort?

Rat, dead moles make an excellent coyote bait!
....and why is it raccoons are always pulling up dead moles in traps and dragging them around? shocked

I have some 'aged' in rain water 4-5 years...it's a sludge now, But I be it'll work well on canines down a hole.

Ha! smile
All that damage...usually just one mole, tunnel is about 6" deep.

Watch the mounds....the next one that shows up will be on the end, (I believe closest to the bottom...although hard to tell 100% from a photo of that angle.)

You will be able to tell by the freshness of the dirt and how fast it drys out!

Dig down on the second mound back...set your trap there.
If you only had one trap to set, that would be where you will catch the mole.
Typically however, I set this type of damage with three traps...one in the middle and one on each end.
That mole will/should be caught in just a few short hours...less than 24 anyway!

By the way, I carry a few 5 gallon buckets and remove all those mounds when I set up the job. Easy to do by just laying a bucket on its side and raking it in.
The yard will look 100% better before you leave.

Also...that close to a public walk...it's better to have a trap such as NoMol or Steve's trap....out of sight, out of mind! wink

james jackson-
You either have one heck of a big index finger or you have a problem with something that isn't a mole!!! Mole crickets would be very hard to trap in a mole trap!

By the way- you need to add your LOCATION to your profile.

More good feedback for Steve's mole traps. I have used spear(harpoon) traps, out of sight, talparid and no mole traps. Steve's traps work SOOOO much better it's ridiculous. They have made what were difficult mole jobs easy. I can't say enough good things about them.

Also as a former lurker, I greatly appreciate all the advice on this forum.

I also like Steves traps, I am a diehard out of sight mole trap user but will not be without some of his traps in my arsenal for certain situations. Great addition to any mole trappers tool chest.... reminds me I need to order some more Steve...

Help

Been trying to get one mole for two weeks. The property
is a million dollar house on 1/2 acre with sandy loam soil.
I have used steve's traps and Out of sights using every type
of set I have read on this forum. He digs around steve's
traps and fills the Out of sights. The damage is getting
out of sight, any suggestions would be appreciated.

Jerry W.
