Finally found the legendary Tman marathon mole thread!

Photographed this morning, hope you like it smile. Seems even a castle watchtower is no defence against moles at this time of year.

Sat quietly and watched it building one of the molehills, nice start to the day.

Just think of the view from up in that watch tower! You could sneak past the guards, swing on a chandelier up to the staircase and stand on the watchtower capturing a view of the patterns the moles made and how they run their tunnels from up there.. then.. sword fight your way down, because you know the guards would be chasing you. Whistle for your trusty steed, and ride off the the hills to get your traps..then trap those moles like they were biscuits coming out of the oven on a cold winter morning!!=) maybe?=)

I have read this and several other threads but am still having difficulty trapping the small moles in this sandy soil around here. I got lucky and caught these tiny moles a couple of months back but, despite continued activity, no further luck. Their primary paths along sidewalks, driveways, garden beds and foundations seem clear to me. I have "tuned" the trigger to increase sensitivity. There is an occasional false trigger but mostly the tunnels and traps appear untouched. I have tried pushing the trap in the soil and pressing in the tunnel near the trigger pan and have also dug out a segment of tunnel, placed the trap and back filled. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

O/S traps sometimes are just not sensitive enough to catch juvenile moles at times. You can see this at times if you pay attention to the dirt around the trap.They may dig around, over or under the depressed tunnel area below the trigger set to continue on their path of travel if you have compressed the tunnel dirt too tightly. You need to use Steve Albano's clutch type traps or no mole traps to catch the smaller moles when you suspect this is occuring.

I will go ahead and order some of Steve's traps. I read that they were harder to use in sandy soil, but I'll give it a shot. I really appreciate the help.

I am a bit late with my standard welcoming message for any ladies who venture onto Trapperman; please forgive me, for I have been a bit occupied lately:

LT GREY spoke very highly of you long before you joined, by the way...

Anyone catch star nosed or hairy tailed moles ? Please contact me if you have any. I know I should be posting in the trap shed, but I wanted to go directly to the mole experts. Thanks

New poster here and this is a great thread with a wealth of info! I just purchased a home in SE Michigan near some wetlands and have some moles. I wouldn't call it an issue yet, but want to get on top of it before ground freezes. I'm trying to figure out which mole traps (trapline, modified OOS, nomol, other) to try first based on what I believe to be happening.

The only place I have standard mole runs (lifted dirt paths) is in the mulched area around the house and along the sidewalk. I've read trapping in this type of loose soil can be difficult, so want to make sure I buy the right trap.

I have not seen standard mole runs in the yard, but I have seen piles of dirt pushed up in the wet areas and near a small pond. This leads me to believe I have at least star-nosed moles in the lawn. Unsure what is in the mulch near house.

Based on this information, what do you guys recommend trying for both situations?

Thanks in advance!

You have a choice of buying a few Modified OOS and Trapline traps and finding out what mole traps work best for you or better yet hire a local WCO !!!

In your area and hearing of the activity/damage area I would say it is star nosed moles for sure. Being they are a smaller mole on average I would opt for the Trapline clutch type traps to put into the runs. They sometimes will dig under the O/S type traps without firing the trap. In that case a piece of luan or thin plywood needs to be installed into the bottom of the run first to eliminate this problem. It requires some experience to get that method down pat.

@Robb -- I have to try it myself first!

@Bob -- Thanks, I read somewhere that the traplines were tough in mulch. As Robb stated, maybe I'll have to buy both and figure out what works best.

Thanks guys, great forum!

@Swedish Pimple

If you read the whole thread here mole trap preferences here are almost like Religion. Find a trap and methods that work for you. Pssssst they are both great traps and preferred by probabaly 90% of those posting here with No Mol being a third choice. .

Is there a story behind your nickname "Swedish Pimple"

I have a lot of tips on mole trapping on our mole trapping podcasts page

http://moletrapper.us/podcasts/ Good luck mole trapping!!

Thanks, Robb. I have read the entire thread and it sounds like I should try both to figure out which works for me.

Swedish Pimple is my favorite fishing lure made in the U.P.: http://www.swedishpimple.com/

I will be watching your podcasts -- thanks!
