Our Talpex Mole Trap is the original genuine item made in the Netherlands, and they are much copied. As with many other types of traps most of the copies are vastly inferior or indeed useless. If you look at the image you can see the stamp on the tongue of the trap denoting it is a genuine Talpex from the Netherlands.

The Talpex  is an excellent all round trap unless you have stony ground, in which case you may need to sieve the soil with your fingers or a garden riddle to remove the stones. We mainly use this trap for moles that will not push a tunnel trap trigger loop which is blocking their run. Fortunately this is not a common occurrence but moles can become trap shy and the Talpex solves that problem. However there is no reason you cannot use it as a main trap, and many people do. Many of our customers buy a few tunnel traps and one Talpex trap for that specially tricky mole.

An online video lasting a few minutes shows you exactly how to arm and install the trap.

You can of course buy cheaper traps. Many will have weak springs, cheap metal and poor design. Some of them come with large setting handles on top, which are totally unnecessary as these traps are easy to set once you know how!

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!
