Moles.


Recommended Posts

I have tried in the past with various traps but no joy. Last few years I have used a professional and he doesn’t come cheap. This year he didn’t show up so it got me thinking. A couple of year’s back I bought some traps from Trapline in the states after watching the videos on Utube. They have been sitting in the shed ever since.

Now last weekend a mole crossed a boundary with me. He came in from the field and started digging in my garden!

Yesterday I deployed the Trapline traps. I just got home from the office today, less than 24 hours, and Bingo.

Well pleased and I thought it worth sharing as these critters drive me nuts.

I will post the pictures of the kill in a moment so look no further if you are a mole fan........................:yes:

Once again for a a bit of accommodation and a few curries for him I can offer you the services of Bill. He can dig for England, has the heart of a lion and mice, rats, rabbits, the odd fox and Bill is game, he even had a go at a passing horse and trap a couple of weeks ago. Moles wouldn't be a problem for him and he'll bring his mate BoBo the Clown with him if you need any stray trespassing kids sorting out. 

:biggrin:

If you get a few you can JOIN THE ARISTOCRACY AND HAVE A WAISTCOAT MADE :yes:

 

But they do aerate the soil a bit for free - - don't bother me at all :nono:

 

(The saying is

As black as the Earl of Haig's Waistcoat

I had a cat once, right old bruiser, that caught a mole.

Also took him to vet once cos thought a dog had had him... Vet said it was a fox but what was unusual was the wounds were on the front. He'd stood his ground and fought the bugger.

Hard as nails.

Surprisingly although we are close to the town center there have been a couple of foxes going along the bit of waste ground nearby recently, maybe the lure of tons of half eaten takeaway food chucked all over the place on a night might be the attraction. As for cats, someone moved in along the road with three feral mangy looking things that never seem to go indoors, the couple in the flat upstairs found one of them in there bedroom the other week, Bill has his eye on them, so far none of them have ventured into his bit of garden. There have been a couple of staring down matches but so far they've kept their distance.

:laugh: :laugh:

Yeah I could do with a dog. I have working cats but its rare they take a mole. They take rats no problem but never eat one. They seem to know whats good for them.

It can be an emotive subject. I was just excited that after so much time and effort I got one. Just about to order a kit, now I know how to do it.

I have a Fox trap and a Larsen trap but I will spare everyone the pictures...................:biggrin:

A lad I work with does this in his spare time even has mole number plate on his Land rover also shoots foxes rabbits etc.

I wonder what bore with which you would shoot moles? :wink:

Later,
William

He uses traps for the moles :yes:

Oh well, I was painting a vivid picture in my mind of a time between the wars... men in tweed, shotguns resting in the crooks of their arms. The beaters scaring out the moles... "Oh, jolly bad luck Terrence, that was a slippery one that got away.:laugh:

Later,
William
