You should grind them up and add bait solution of your choice, and Sodium benzoate!

Caught a few here but it's really dry. So tunnels are deep. But customers are happy that we are getting them

Our mole trapping conditions are near over here already. It got dry, windy and warm too quickly this spring. The ground is hard like June weather. Hopefully we will get some rain for a few days to moisten the ground enough to promote some activity.

We got a little shower over nite in our area but it didn't do much for our ground conditions. We need a good all day steady rain to soak the ground good. Then off and on for a week to really help.

We have been using the Albano trapline standard size mole traps for many years now. I haven't used any other traps for many years.

I don't travel to the conventions much any longer. Just too much to do here with both businesses to take off time to travel. I loose money when I do.
