Mole traps are the most effective way to exterminating moles. A mole trap such as a scissor trap or choker trap can be rather effective in eradicating moles. It is important you use gloves when handling traps that have no chemical residues such as pesticide or other chemicals as a mole will sence that more than the human scent you are trying to hide by wearing the gloves. If a mole trap has be set and there is no activity in 3 days it is probably a wise choice to relocate the trap. Happy mole hunting.
