The little tunnel rats are back but loosing.
If you scroll down to the first of March, you'll find where I had a little blog about moles invading my yard.
Back then I had some pellets leftover from a previous invasion a few years ago. So I put out about double the dosage like I normally do (and was also concerned if they are still good to get a kill). Those little moles came back through the tunnel and just pushed the pellets up to the top of the tunnel imbedded in the dirt.
Being a little disappointed I found an intersection of three tunnels and carefully peeled back the top of the tunnel. Then slowly dumping the rest of the jar into all three tunnels I used a small stick to poke them into the tunnels so I could empty the container.
At this point I wasn't sure these old pellets are any good and decided to purchase a trap. A quick internet search and I had one one the way before I got back in the house.
This looked interesting so I bought it to try out. Having a year warranty I wasn't expecting much but it was American made! The nice thing about this one is once the moles trip it then pops up so you can see something has tripped it.
By the time it arrived my tunnels were looking like the moles were gone so I didn't get a chance to try it out until now. After a long day of work on Saturday I decided to mow the yard before calling it a day which meant I mowed into the darkness of the night. Luckily I spotted a new tunnel near the Lilacs. So my last job Saturday night was setting a new trap.
Sunday was definitely a day of rest (recovery) and I kept looking out the window to see if the trap was tripped. Well Monday evening after work I was walking up to the house and see the trap was tripped!
The war on moles continues but so far the yard is tunnle free.
