"Trap Eliminated My Backyard Moles"
"I have yet to have an unsatisfied customer," says Bob Bruno, distributor of the trap. "I had one woman tell me she had never found a trap yet that worked. I told her to take one and try it. If it didn't work, send it back. Instead, she sent me a check for four more for friends."
"Like that customer, I had never met a trap or bait that did the job, not that it's an easy job to do. Moles are fast, moving 80 ft./min. in an existing tunnel. Researchers say they can dig new tunnels at the rate of 18 ft. per hour or as much as 150 ft. per day.
"When Bruno showed me the $34.95 trap at a farm show, I was skeptical. I did like the money-back guarantee, something my local hardware store wasn't about to give me on their traps.
"My first few tries were dismal failures. I called Bob, and he gave me a few pointers. Most important was to make sure the trigger mechanism was directly over the tunnel. Because what happens is that when the mole comes back to open the collapsed tunnel, he pushes upward, triggering the trap.
"Other smarter mole trappers would have instinctively known these things but I was happy to have Bob's advice.
"I headed back to the yard, carefully stepped down only a section of a main tunnel that would be under the trap trigger. Then I centered the trap, which looks like two scissors inside a steel frame. I stepped down on the footrest, checking the trigger mechanism as it went down to be sure it rested directly over the flattened tunnel.
"The next day I checked the trap and it had been triggered. I got my mole. A few days later, another mole entered the area. He too made a one-way trip to the nearby woods."
