How to set a harpoon mole trap
You walk out in your front yard one morning to find a long mound of upraised turf. You have just discovered a mole tunnel or runway. The next day there is another, and another. You realize that if you do not do something your lawn will be ruined.
Moles are small mammals that spend most of their lives in underground burrows. You will seldom, if ever, see one. They have huge appetites and can eat 70 to 80 per cent of their weight daily in earthworms and white grubs. They tunnel constantly underground in search of food and feed day and night at all times of the year but it is in the spring and fall of the year when they are more commonly noticed.
The most practical and successful method of getting rid of moles and stopping the damage to your lawn or garden is by trapping. There are mainly three different types of mole traps. The one discussed here is the harpoon mole trap. They are well suited to trapping moles since they take advantage of the mole’s natural habits.
