Mole Traps In The Frost

Recommended Posts

with the cold comeing in how do we all cope with frost? ive had a few traps set off with the frost today and a few frozen in. so all todays traps have been set with a 1ft square of carpet to help keep the frost off..what do you all use?

I use the no mole trap ... It sits nicely underground up inside the moles run and keeps frost free and works perfectly ......

Simple.....just build a mole hill on top of the trap, the soil will protect it from a freeze-up and it won't effect firing.....job done..... :thumbs:

 

I also use this set when trapping public places such as car parks, schools and sports pitches. No one would ever think to look under a molehill for a trap....out of sight out of mind.....

what if all the molehills are already frozen solid? and you have no nice sifted soil to use?

Take off the crust and at ground level the soil will be friable. Thats what I've been doing all day.....

 

But if the molehills totally frozen the ground will be too so you can't trap anyway as the probe won't go in....so go home and put your feet up, or concentrate on other species....IMO
