How to catch a mole using the scissor mole trap. First determine which type of tunnel to set the scissor mole trap in. If the ground is being forced up in long meandering lumps just under the surface of the turf or soil, you've selected the correct trap, a scissor mole trap is ideal for the job. If there are lots of mole hills visible dotted all over you need the Tunnel type mole trap .or our Pro scissor mole traps
New scissor mole traps should be weathered or buried for a few days before use. Day 1 tread down any runs that are visible, Day 2 check to see which run is being used by the mole, carefully remove the top of the newly pushed run using a trowel, make sure the hole is clear. Set the scissor mole trap by pressing the handles together and placing the trip plate between the horizontal part of the claws, near the rivet marks but at the side nearest the attaching chain, the trip plate should move a little, once set push the mole trap in the run so that the handles are vertical and at 90° to the run, positioned so the mole can crawl between the curved part of the claws. Fill in the top of the mole trap with some fine soil up to the hinge pin on the handle.
Check the scissor mole trap every day for three days if the mole trap has not sprung move it to another place where mole activity has been noticed. The scissor mole trap is effective in 25% of positions set, that is to say the mole trap should be successful every 4th time it is set if it doesn't either you're not setting it in the correct fashion or the mole has eaten its fill in you property and gone elsewhere. The more scissor mole traps you set the better the success rate, ideally a minimum of 2 scissor mole traps should be used.

Moles are fascinating little creatures and the occasional hill in the lawn is best scattered and ignored - after all, think of the improvement to the soil's drainage. However, there are times when they become a real pest, destroying a whole row of vegetables at a time or seriously affecting the use of a small paddock. When that happens, the only effective solution is to trap them.
I'd like to apologies
for my skepticism. I really never expected them to work but after only
two days I’ve eradicated my mole problem with scissor traps. They’re worth
their weight in gold!
