Product Description

Defenders Mole Tunnel Trap can be used to catch and control moles. To use the product: Depress setting arm until it touches tunnel. Swing setting hook over setting arm. Move the base of the trigger ring to a perpendicular position so that the hook at the top engages with the setting arm. Repeat process at the other end of the trap. Place trap in mole run so the run guides are seated at the bottom of the run. Cover the mole run to exclude all light. Check daily.

    After trying for months I finally caught the mole within 20 minutes of setting 2 of these traps. I tried the humane traps...no luck and not as humane as I was lead to believe as it turns out. I tried a plunger style trap...still no luck. But these tunnel traps did the job almost straight away PLUS the little blighter was still alive so I was able to put it in a bucket and take it to a local common field so at least it had a chance of starting again, and judging by the molehills that are there now where there weren't any before I suspect it could well be him.
    First gently stamp down any mole runs then the next day inspect them to see which have been re-dug/disturbed. Chances are these are the main tunnel(s) the mole uses. Next using a trowel dig away the turf/earth until you find the tunnel, clear away any excess soil and using the "T" of a spade handle firm down the earth in the tunnel where you are going to place the trap. When the soil is firm set and place the trap, put back a little soil around the sides of the trap and replace some of the turf ensuring the springs on the trap will still be able to spring. Then maybe cover with a roof tile or tray from a flower pot or even a bucket to keep the light out. Check the trap every 24 hours or less. If after a few days it doesn't look like you're having any luck then you probably haven't got one of the main runs - just start again by stamping down any runs as before.
    By the way don't bother setting the traps with gloves (unless protecting fingers of course) or leaving the traps out so they lose their "scent" as mole have really poor sense of smell apparently. Either way I didn't use gloves and set the traps from new and caught it pretty much straight away.

    I have tried every type of mole trap and deterrent for years [ see my various reports ] and find that this tunnel trap is the only one which works efficiently . There are various makes and I am sure that they all work well , but the price decided me on these ones . Took a little longer than I am used to for delivery , but now here they are hard at work to rid my garden of the latest invasion of these underground terrorists . One mole can destroy about an acre so it is essential to rid your land as soon as the dreaded mole hills appear . These traps do the trick . Usually a result within 48 hours .
    Why not 5 stars ? Because you need a really strong , careful pair of hands to set them and I found with this batch that I had to adjust the trigger mechanism with pliers to get them to "set" .
    Otherwise no complaints . A good product at a keen price .

    These are infernally difficult to use for a number of reasons: 1. They're REALLY difficult to set. You need strong hands and still stand a good chance of seriously injuring your fingers if anything goes wrong and the trigger catch slips. 2. You have to locate them tightly into the run - again, mind your fingers. 3. When you've caught a mole it's nigh on impossible to get the little b*gger out of the trap - yes, and mind your fingers (as ever).
    I much prefer the upright jaw type. They're easy to set. If you cover the hole you've set it in at ground level to exclude light you leave the top of the trap's legs sticking out and can easily see if it's sprung. Finally, you don't have to handle the deceased to remove it from the trap.

    These traps really do work. I've employed professional pest controllers that use these and charge £100 call-out plus £11 per mole caught. They caught some 27 moles, which worked out at a cost of £14.70 per mole caught. It needed doing but was too expensive. Bought five of these the other day and already caught another five moles, at less than a Fiver each plus my time. With the bonus that the traps will last for years and catch any more moles that appear.
    Never had any luck with pincer type traps in the past and do consider these to be in a different league. Once they have 'weathered' a bit, I expect even better success.

    Watch your fingers while setting these traps [or any other type]! However, while being sensitive, have not had any real problem setting these traps up, contrary to some other reviewers. Some have needed a slight adjustment with pliers to either make them easier or harder to trigger, which is no big deal. There is certainly a knack to it, as there is to doing many things, and the springs are nice and strong.

    Dropped two stars for one reason - out of the box these traps were impossible to use
    In my limited experience tunnel traps are the most efficient of the various mole trap types and this one fits the bill. However there are a couple of words of warning.
    Firstly don't buy this type unless you have strong and nimble hands. You need to depress the sprung loop at the same time as slipping the spring retaining bar under the trigger, or 'mumble pin', and also pulling the trigger forward to engage it. Having done so release the pressure slowly so as to confirm the trigger is held in place and isn't going to slip off, spinging the trap while your fingers are still in it. **** Never to be attempted with gloves on ****
    This particular version is very solid, so on the up side should last a long time. On the down side the spring is even stronger than the other makes I've got making it that much harder to set.
    So why the loss of two stars? Well this bring me to the second word of warning. The spring parts are shiny and slippery and the spring retaining bar wouldn't stay under the trigger, it kept slipping out. I had to put a small kink in the end of the retaining bar in order to keep it from slipping off the trigger. Even with that modification it's very much a hair trigger and goes off at the slightest pressure, as two moles have already found out to their cost.
    So, buy this product if you have strong hands and don't mind having to modify it slightly, it's a good trap at a good price.
