    Only thing I don't like about them traps Yatt (in the video) you have to literally dig out the run and insert the trap.

    The ones I have, I take the tools to open the jaws with. get them ready to open and stick the trap in the run through the top of the soil. Once in place open and set the trap, done. :drinkup:

    No new runs today so looks like I had one lone mole raking havoc

    From what the guy says in his tutorial. Moles have deep runs they use for long periods of time. The runs you see in the yard are the ones they are actively feeding in. The type of trap he sells is virtually 100% in catch success and can work in the deep runs which the victor traps will not.

    Poor little bastard :laugh:

    Got caught in the deep run trap :drinkup:

    Nice thing about these, don't even get your hands dirty, no holes to dig out, nothing. Push in the run and push down with your foot to set the trap.

    Walk away.
    Come back
    Dead :drinkup:
