Set a yard today with no less than 10 of the noise-maker-mole-deterring gimmicks. The yard is a disaster. Set this trap on the side of the house a few inches from one of these contraptions. Just thought it would be ironic if I trapped a mole inches from a device that supposedly keeps them away. After setting traps and as I was packing up I looked over and saw a trap in the front yard was already tripped. The customers were happy to say the least.

I don't think I've ever set on 1, but 8ve seen moles push their mole hill up around them.

I have seen mole go around those type of devices one. But I was there to trap the moles. Why use the devices and set an OOS?

I think he is trying to prove they don’t work.


once you go trap, you never come back

I had a customer last fall try to get me to lower my price for trapping the moles. I think I might’ve taken off $20. Next time I checked the traps they had several of the gimmicks in the yard and I had three moles in three traps.
Why pay someone to trap them and spend money to put up a “deterrent” midway through the process.

Some customers are convinced they know better.

I've caught many moles within a foot of those silly things. I set by them whenever I can, just to prove the point that trapping works.... and those things don't.

Use them to guide the moles into the traps. LOL
