Tomcat Mole Trap

The Tomcat Mole TrapThe Tomcat mole trap is one of the most popular on the market. It’s intended to be used hands-free and is one of the easiest traps to get working. It has a large yellow foot pedal which allows you to keep a safe distance away from the jaws when setting the trap.

The Tomcat trap is a scissor trap, which means it uses closing jaws to trap the moles. When setting the trap, it’s jaws need to be placed across a mole tunnel so they’re ready to snap shut when the trap is triggered.

Once you’ve decided where to place the trap, with a spade you’ll need to cut two slots for the mole trap jaws to fit into. After this, the trap can be placed over the mole tunnel with it’s jaws beneath the surface. The trap should be positioned so that the jaws are able to close at the same height as the mole tunnel. If the trap is set too high, it might not catch the moles as the scurry past at the bottom of their tunnel underneath the reach of the trap jaws.

The trap is designed to be set by standing on the yellow lever and pressing it down to the ground. This opens the jaws and sets them in the correct position, ready for the unsuspecting mole.

It’s worth mentioning that there is another scissor trap available in stores, called the Talpirid mole trap. This is essentially the same as the Tomcat mole trap with different branding, so you don’t need to be too worried about any major differences.

The Tomcat mole trap (and Talpirid mole trap) has been design with safety and practicality in mind. It’s largely hands free and doesn’t require much expertise to start putting it to work. It’s considered to be safer than a lot of other available mole traps because when set the jaws should be below the ground. This has the additional advantage of being much more attractive than some of the other larger traps out there.

All in all, the Tomcat mole trap is a solid choice. It’s a trap which is recommended by many and always seems to deliver the right results.
