Well the day after setting my first mole job with a dozen of Steve's traps and I caught 4 of them. I would like to thank steve for getting them to me on time. I charges 300 for a week of trapping. The yard is about 7-10 acres and lots of mole sign and they have had problems with them for years.

I started a job yesterday. This property is on the corner with the other three corners being plowed fields. I think that when the fields are plowed it forces the moles out of the fields to the closest non-plowed land.

Any way, while I am setting 20 OOS on the job site, I hear one of the traps snap. Checking it I find a now very dead mole. laugh


As I am driving away, I look back to see that another trap had been snapped, but decided to what until this morning to check it. I found a mole in that trap and 3 others. grin This a personal best for me. 5 moles in a little over 12 hours on one site!

The owner told me the proof is in the pudding and he is very happy.

I also got this job because of the lettering on the side of my truck. Very sweet!

The best I've been able to come up with calling KY DNR is passed on to a voice mail.

......and yes, good job, Rattie.
You're becoming a pretty good mole trapper!

Now if you can catch a "Ghost mole", like 330 trapper, you will be at the top of your game, but not until! wink

Over 50% of my business about 6 months of the year, is mole work.

Hi,

New to mole trapping and this forum. I visit every other summer relatives in Europe, who have lots of moles in their vegetable garden. I promised to help get rid of them. I read all the posts and have a few questions:

1. Moles have very strong sense of smell, so is it okay to handle the traps with rubber gloves?
2. I've read somewhere new traps must be washed with rain water before first use to eliminate any human smell on them. Should I care? What precautions should I take with new traps?
3. What about rusted traps? How to maintain proper fonctioning without using WD-40?
4. Do Steve traps rust over time? Do they need at all to be replaced?

Thanks in advance!

Don't worry about smell I see no difference between cleaned, out of the box or filthy.

As for as maintenance goes on the OSS the factory "dip" will last a good while when that wears thin either paint or speed dip will be fine.

Steve's traps are stainless.

If you cover the traps with a small bucket it should work fine to conceal the dogs business.

Not sure I understand ...are you covering the trap with a bucket to avoid detection by the dogs?

My post was just mentioning, in a humorous fashion, that I believe the dog urinating on or near my traps was a why I had not caught any moles there and the reason for my increasing frustration. On rare occasions I do use a cover over my traps to prevent the family dog from digging them up. I think BUD was just offering a suggestion of using a bucket to prevent the dog from urinating on the traps.

Had 3 for 3 moles at 3 seperate houses today on long term contracts. No one to enjoy it but it sure is good to bat a thousand once in a while!

I just started on moles and thanks to LT's instructions on setting OUT O'SITES I have two down. That is on two jobs and one other that is kicking my fanny. I will get it but am having trouble with steve's traps. Some dug out, but think I have that figured out. It is the half dozen that were tripped, not dug around and empty I have not figured out but I will.
What is really nice is I am being paid to have fun.
