Types of mole traps

There are so many types of moles traps that can be used to ensure, or catch the mole alive. Each works differently from the other and therefore, before going into the market and grabbing any that you want, you need to know the purpose as well usage of the trap, otherwise, you might have the wrong trap other than the one that you want to use.

Moles and mole traps

There are different types, basically, there are those that will work under certain conditions and there are those that will work under specific conditions and therefore, it is really up-to to you to know what you really want to work with. But before we could go into details about the traps, there are different moles which are:

• The broad footed moles.

• Hairy tailed moles.

• The shrew mole.

• The coast mole

These are the different types moles there are and therefore before going ahead to get yourself a mole trap, perhaps you need to understand what you are dealing with.

Types of traps

In the market, you are likely to find a collection of the traps and therefore, it is really up to you to figure out what you to work with. Here are some of the traps:

• No-mole traps.

• Out of site traps.

These are the mole’s trap that you will get in the market. However, the most common of all is the no mole trap and works perfect for most of the moles.

No-mole trap

It is in their nature to make several runs of different type across the yard. Two types of runs are the most common; there are the straight runs as well as the zigzag runs. Travel runs are the straight ones while the bedding location as well pooping location are represented by the zigzag runs. Therefore, given that the no mole trap will go directly in the runs, therefore trapping the mole becomes very easy.

If you have a mole problem in your yard, it is best that you first of all get to know what is bothering you at first, what kind of a mole is really in your yard, after that, you may decide to set up the no-mole trap or the other kinds of traps.
