Hi There, We moved house earlier this year to Somerset to a lovely large house with a lovely large garden. ...but with one problem ..moles!! arrgh.. initially I didnt want to trap them so I tried those sonar stake things you put in the ground. At first I thought it had worked but no, they came back after about 2 weeks. Then my neighbours gardener told me the only way was to trap them and after a but of research I found the 'EasySet' mole trap which was fab, much easier to use than the metal ones - I could easily do it myself, you just push down this plunger thing. and it is also a lot kinder for the mole as it kills them quicker..very important for me as I would hate to think of it suffering at all. Well worth a try. the moles do seem to have gone - and its been 6 months now . Not sure if they are ever likely to come back though? does anyone know why moles prefer some lawns and not others? its not a problem i have ever had before..a whole new experience for me!
