Victor Spear Type Trap for Killing Nuisance Moles
Although the mole has always been considered one of the "good guys" in the animal kingdom, its burrowing can often destroy lawns, golf course greens and other landscaped areas. Moles feed on grubs, worms and insects, a habit that make them a welcomed sight in many gardens where they are considered to be free, all natural pest control. Moles do not feed on vegetation (as do Voles) but when their burrows run close to the surface a great deal of earth is displaced. This raised or displaced path can damage turf grasses in lawns by separating the root system of desired plants from the dirt in which they are trying to grow.
In many cases, repairing the damage is easy. Simply step on or walk along the path of raised dirt. This simple action will re-establish grass roots to the soil so that the grass will not die. After a few days of mashing down the tunnels, the burrowing animal will often give up and move on to another area where it is welcome to feed on grubs and insects.
When pressing down on their tunnels, using all natural mole repellents or other such methods fail to make the offending mole move on, it is sometimes necessary to kill the animal with baits or traps. Many people prefer to use the spear type trap because it is quickly kills the animal without undue or long term pain and suffering.
