I did a couple in the last few weeks because they really wanted them out of their yard and the weather was still ok. Got several calls for others but I tell them I will start back up in the spring and take down their #.

I squeeze in a few mole trapping jobs during those short, winter warm-ups when the ground thaws for a couple days. I use peat moss to cover my traps (year-round) and it works well when winter temps hover around the freezing mark at night. Doesn't draw moisture, so doesn't prevent the traps from firing correctly like regular dirt from the site will do. I use it all year, as it doesn't clump up like dirt during hard rains.
