Mole Run Probe, with Video Instructions



A Mole Run Probe is an absolutely essential item – we wouldn’t go to set traps without one.
And – at about 32″ (80cm) it’s long enough to use without bending double!

FOR OVERSEAS DELIVERY – for UK Delivery please select the One Piece Probe

The full length probe is too large for a Royal Mail parcel. In the UK we can deliver these by carrier, but for overseas delivery we supply this two-piece probe which can be posted anywhere in the world with Royal Mail.

A Mole Run Probe is a vital piece of equipment that no mole catcher should be without. We have these made for us in England, at about 80cms long – unlike cheaper rivals. So no more stooping. They’re made of steel rod and brightly powder-coated in orange so you can see it on the ground.

One of the trickiest problems when mole catching is finding the mole run. This probe makes that task far easier than using a screwdriver, electric fencing post or any of the dozens of other probes that are in use.

The tip is of a larger diameter than the shaft of the rod. When you push the rod through the ground, it creates a larger hole than the shaft. This means that when you hit a mole run, you feel the distinct ‘drop’ into the tunnel as the shaft of the tool is not being gripped by the soil. In fact you can sometimes feel if you have hit the side of a tunnel rather than the middle.

You’ll need a 13mm or adjustable spanner to make up the joint, preferably tightening it up in a vice. It is shown in the second photograph.

The link to the Instruction Video will come with the parcel.

Whilst on holiday in Norfolk I dropped in to see Chris as I am expanding my pest control remit to include mole trapping. I was given extremely good and practical advice and have hence purchased some high quality half barrel and putange traps along with his custom spade. The online videos and training provided are extremely helpful.
Many thanks!
