Kenneth tried everything to get his front yard mole free. He hired my company to rid them and we tried non-poisonous bait to rid them from the front yard. It did not work. Then Kenneth tried the Mole Chaser purchased at Harbor Freight; it did not work. Then he purchased a Windmill Mole Chaser, it was difficult to install and had missing pieces, but it would not have worked either. Finally Kenneth purchased the Tomcat Mole Trap® and that worked. So this post tells a success story. 

This post shows the eleven steps on how to set up the Tomcat Mole Trap, and afterwards remove the trapped mole from the front yard. 

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the Tomcat Mole Trap®. This is the best product I have ever used. We've tried many types of traps and nothing ever worked to remove the moles from their front yard. To get more information about the Tomcat Mole Trap® please click on the link above.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the Tomcat Mole Trap® is in the up position. When the Tomcat Mole Trap® is in the up position, the jaws are closed. This is the position that lets you know the trap has been set off.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows the back view of the Tomcat Mole Trap®.

Step 4: Fig.4 shows a D-handle spade that will be used to properly set the Tomcat mole trap.

Step 5: Fig.5 shows a D-handle spade in a spot where a mole had one of its holes. Now dig a little deeper so the trap claws will be set into the mole hole.

Step 6: Fig.6 shows that the trap has been set by placing your foot or your boot on top of the Tomcat mole trap®. It is very hard to set and caution is advised.
