How to make a mole trap
Moles are certainly a pest and can cause a lot of damage.
If you’ve been considering trapping some, remember that the most important thing to remember is that the trap must ensure that the creature has minimal suffering and dies swiftly and cleanly.
In fact, traps do not need approval under the Spring Traps Approval Order 1995 and anyone can make a mole trap.
Any trap, bespoke or commercial, will give varying results depending on the skill and experience of the person setting it.
Mole trappers across the UK are a testament to these facts, and results confirm that Bob’s traps certainly stop moles in their tracks both legally and morally.
Legally, because mole trapping has has to be in accordance with the laws regarding the target species, and where moles are concerned the law is clear.
Currently, there are no legal requirements to check mole traps on a daily basis, as moles have only basic protection from cruelty under the Wild Mammals Protection Act 1996 and Animal Welfare Act 2006.
