I don't care if its fatal or otherwise, does anyone have a trap that catches moles?


Some of the co-ops stock mole traps

A great tip Keith  :good:
After all we do have ti be kind to our furry friends.

Don't agree, Abby - they're one of the very few animals that I can live without.

I agree, I shot one once and it bothered me for days afterwards.

Its strange how the subject word "moles" can be read in Afrikaans as "big problems"

I've posted this before - there are two tips for catching snails:

One from my late mom:  Crush egg shells and sprinkle in beds, the snails get stuck on the shells - bye bye snails 

This one from Keith Kirsten's "Down to Earth Garden Book" - I quote:  "A snail trap that works like a charm is to put down small piles of bran and cover them with cabbage leaves. The snails gather under the leaves and each morning you will find quite a few to destroy.  By doing this in infested areas you will be amazed after a week how many snails you have caught" unquote
"Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way" - African saying
