Molecatcher's Spade



Our Mole Catching Spade is a specially sharpened border spade with a pointed blade for opening up mole runs.

Please note this can only be sent by carrier to the UK mainland, and we cannot accept orders from elsewhere.

Nor can it be packaged with anything else, and it therefore has its own charge for separate packaging and delivery which is included on the basket page.


This Mole Catching Spade is exactly the same width as a tunnel trap. It is made in India, and the lower shaft and blade are of carbon steel and the upper shaft and handle are of sturdy plastic.

It is a border spade, and we have the blade end specially sharpened and ground to a point here in England. This makes it far easier to dig into lawns and turf than a conventional spade. With this spade – and having learnt how to use a tunnel trap – you should be able, once you have located and marked out a run using a probe, to dig out the turf, set the trap, cover it and be walking away in under a minute and a half!

Been driven mad as we are surrounded by fields. Normally get the local mole man however, it’s getting pricey. Chris was very helpful and the traps/videos are top notch. Got mr mole! The reason I had failed on previous attempts was he was a monster. His width was wider than than the scissors. Got him. Great company. Well done. ATVB. Alan Mac

A local contractor (family friend) cleared our garden of mole hills. He thought there maybe the odd one still around in the historical tunnels in our unploughed pasture. We didn’t mind them so much in a few places in our fields, but not in a lawn to the extent that makes mowing it difficult.
Anyway, Phil was right. A couple of new hills appeared. I had become fascinated by their amazing abilities and found this method whilst researching online. After nearly 60 years experience of successfully designing experiments to separate fact from fiction on all manner of problems, I recognised the way that this method and kit had been developed; it was like reading one of my own reports. I knew that this had to be the real deal.
So, I bought the kit. Being a novice, I followed the instructions step by step and set a trap one evening. I’d read some reviews about catching a mole with the first trap, but I’m a really average guy getting results by working long hours; double and treble checking everything I do. But I just had to check that trap first thing next morning, just in case. It had sprung (in the direction I expected!). Yes, a mole in the first trap, with little effort.
That was years ago. We’ve down sized house into the village now and I’m helping neighbours clearing their lawns up. One mole with first trap set in each case. All quiet now. Lemon drizzle cake as prezzies.


Simply the best.
