Scissor Mole Trap Setting
New 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, 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 scissor mole trap has not sprung move it to another place where mole activity has been noticed. scissor mole trap is effective in 25% of positions set, that is to say the mole trap should be sucessful 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 mole traps you set the better the success rate, ideally a minimum of 2 mole traps should be used.
As with all live capture, The trap is only as good as the person setting it.
Legal Constraints There are several legal constraints that you must be aware of: Once set, the trap must, by law, be checked at least once every 24 hours.more instructions and photo's online.............
