Details

Rarely do you see their pointy faces in the daylight, but their trails and tracks are evident as they cut your lawn and garden to ribbons.  Pesky varmints—moles that is!  And certainly there are plenty of products on the market to poison or blow them to smithereens.  But you have children, pets, welcome wildlife, and produce to protect.  Rural King has the solution:  the Wire Tek EasySet Mole Eliminator Trap.

No matter the species of the mole, (and who but a zoologist can tell the difference anyway?)  this is a product to get rid of them permanently.  No digging (yes the moles have done enough of that); trip cables, sharply pointed spears or hand snapping clamps are involved.  Here is how it works: firmly insert the closed jaws into the center of the mole's tunnel until the base of the Wire Tek EasySet Mole Eliminator Trap is flush to the ground. 

Fearlessly step straight down on the setting lever.  The trap and trigger mechanism is ready for action.  Simple!  As the offending vermin runs through its tunnel, with nothing more than his next meal of grubs on the brain, it runs smack into the collapsed portion of the tunnel where the trap is set.  Whack, boom, bam (not that loud, more like a snap) he is toast.  Done!!  Take back your lawn and garden with this product today!

The traps are very easy to set and move around as needed. Within the first 1 1/2 hours eliminated one. Total of 3 in one week and got two of them in one day. They are smart and get around the traps sometimes but patience pays off. My neighbors are enjoying the kill just as much as I am.

Another Worthless Trap To Add To My Collection Review by Colin Bayler
Quality
Price
Value

I had such high hopes for this device. Two hours after placing it in a run and not getting anything, I moved it to a new location and got a mole within one hour.

Since then, I have been using it every day for weeks and have not been able to kill another critter. In fact, several times they have built a mound right next to the trap. I am not setting it any differently than before so I'm not sure what's going on. I'm saying that so any know-it-alls that think I'm I'm screwing up can just keep their comments to themselves.

It seems that the trap doesn't trigger as easily as when I first put it in. Maybe being in the soil has sort of clogged the moving parts. Everything looks clean, but I think I will lubricate it anyway and see if that helps.

I know for a fact that they are going right through it and it isn't triggering like the first time. This is the fifth trap I have bought. Contrary to what some people say about traps being the only effective method of killing moles. I have to disagree. I find it hard to believe that I am not doing anything right when I follow the directions and place these devices in multiple places.

I am now leaning heavily toward getting some outside cats and hoping for the best with them.

Best Mole Trap on the Market Review by Rick Rector
Value

This is my second mole trap from Wire Tek. Very effective, but you have to make sure the trap is set on an active tunnel. With my first trap, I've caught over 50 moles( I have two acres of lawn). I just caught my first with my new trap last week. Would definitely recommend this trap to anyone with a mole problem. I've only had one instance where the mole wasn't dead when I pulled it out of the ground(caught it by the leg). Generally, the death is instantaneous and the animal doesn't suffer.

Had some "in tunnel" traps that had always worked. This year the moles just started tunneling under them. Bought 3 Wire Tek traps and caught 4 moles within a week; no more moles! Very sturdy construction. While they can be a little hard to set in hard ground, they're worth the extra effort as they WILL catch the moles. TIP: if it's hard to set, insert a flat bladed shovel into the ground where the scissors will go (both sides). Now the scissors can open easily!

I very much like these type of mole traps as I have bought one already and trapped about two or so mole's in it and they are very easy to use! so user friendly!, 1 'made very well with a metal type construction, 'so made well 2, 'do not seam to rust but I have not had one for years yet and that is the real test!? but that would be the 3rd good thing about it is that it won't rust!, 'mark with flag so it doesn't get mowed over is a tip! and also you do not 'have' to step down on it in order to set it as I set it by hand, pushing down on the middle making sure the trigger in the middle is lined up center so mole will trigger the trap! put dead mole back into mole run to rot alerting other mole's and they will leave that area!

Started having moles take over my yard in NW Ohio at the end of last year. I tried other traps that you can purchase at the big box stores with no success. I also used other methods such as smoke, etc. also with little results.

Within 24 hours of setting this trap, I had my first mole of the year. I am going to pick up a second trap this weekend.

It is VERY easy to use and is made in the USA.

This mole trap is the best trap I have ever bought. I've had a lot of other kinds of traps and they were either hit or miss, mostly miss. My lawn and my fathers were being torn up really bad. I tried all my other traps and got nothing. I set the trap 4 times, two in my lawn and two in my fathers. I Got 4 Moles, not one miss. I got them all, no more signs of runs. It is one of the easiest & safest traps to set. It is a little pricey but well worth every penny I spent. Make sure you get this one that's made in the USA not the China knock off. Fast Shipping by Rural King!

Best trap and it's made in the U.S.A. So easy to use. Plop it on a mole run, step on it to set it and you are done. Nothing to pull or push. I bought three and leave a trap in the old run because a new mole will eventually try and make it his new home. I left it there all winter and caught one in the Spring. The great thing is that you don't have to dig or even put your hand in the dirt. No rust and the traps still work fine.

Bought this particular trap because it looked easy to use and it was. Set it in one tunnel but after several hours nothing so I moved it to what looked like a more recent tunnel and within 10 minutes got one. Set it again but still waiting for a second. We had a problem several years ago that seemed to be just a single mole so there may be only one again this time. Can't beat the ease of use and made in USA.

Kills them dead Review by Tim Both
Value
Quality
Price

What can I say, these traps have saved not only my lawn but many of my neighbors as well. I have spent years and literally hundreds of dollars trying to poison, smoke, track, stab, drown, hunt with a killer terrier and even considered explosive gas. NONE of it worked, OH!!! and those sonic spikes just make them come from more directions and mate with a steady beat. Then I found this wonderful, amazing, simple and deadly device. Don't let the simplicity fool you, this diabolical death trap is 100% effective and, just plan fun to use. Let me set the scene for you, all sand lots, NO black dirt, easy for these moles to do the back stroke in. Four+ years in uninhibited eating, mating, and turning my lawn into the Indy 500 for under earth dwellers. Then, I purchase just one of these little steel miracles, in less then 30 minutes, WACK one dead worm eating daemon of the dark. Set the trap again, SNAP, the next dirt sniffer is snuffed out. I have now purchased nine of the traps and I carpet bomb any area that shows the slightest sign of upheaval and then mercilessly add another notch to my belt. Thirteen confirmed kills in my lawn alone, many more as I share my new found glory with the neighbors. These devices are worth more then just the small price to purchase them, they are worth your piece of mind. You can not go wrong with this investment.

After using my fathers trap and catching 3, I bought my own. This trap really works, had one caught within an hour of setting. Have caught 13 this year and 9 were with this, 4 with a shovel and hoe but this trap is much easier and less time consuming.
Sets and disarms easy.
Normally on an active run you have the mole in 24 hours or less. Simply find the longest part of the run and set the trap in the middle. Works fantastic.
