The trap your using can be checked everyday as the top of it is exposed and it's in your garden mate or do you mean before you move them as they've not caught ?

Sometimes they just keep coming. Popular wisdom says that the mole is a solitary animal, suggesting that one catch equals a clearance, but certain runs will yield surprising numbers of customers. I like to check everyday, where ever possible.

In fact, I get quite itchy when I can't get round to all my traps as frequently as I'd like. A trapped mole is just blocking the path of the others and I like to get reset asap, in hope OR expectation!

Hi Ray - looks like you are getting on well with those Talpex traps mate.

 

I read somewhere that a mole runs his complete tunnel system in 3 days but as said above if they are handy to check then more often is better as sometimes you can reset and catch multiple moles from one trap site. If after a few days they trap stops catching and all activity has stopped then probably time to lift the trap.

 

atb,

Dave.
