Important Note: Our mole and gopher traps are not the same. If you have moles, see the information on our Trapline Mole Traps below. If you have pocket gophers, scroll down and see information on The Gophinator gopher trap. If you're not sure what you have, click on "Pest ID Guide" from menu above left for help identifying your pest.
The Trapline Mole Trap is made in a "standard" and a "large size", with the larger size trap having a jaw spread about 1/4 inch wider than that of the standard size trap. Other than this one small but important difference, the two sizes of mole traps are identical in all other regards. The large size is not more powerful than the standard size, as the spring tension on the two traps is identical.
The standard size is the preferred size for trapping moles in most of the USA. It is the preferred trap for the Eastern Mole and Star Nosed Mole species that inhabit the eastern USA and the Midwest, as well as the Broadfooted Mole in California and the Coast Mole of Oregon and Washington.

The Gophinator gopher trap
The Gophinator gopher trap is made in a single size that is effective on all North American pocket gopher species, and is your best choice for trapping adult gophers throughout the USA, Canada, and Mexico. If you trap half-grown juvenile gophers on a regular basis, you should consider also getting some standard size Trapline Mole Traps, as they are very effective on juvenile gophers, and they fit just right in the smaller tunnels, eliminating the need for extra digging.

Our vole trapping kits come with everything you see in use on our vole trapping instructional video on the vole page of this site. This includes the durable vinyl trap covers, the u-shaped stakes for staking down the covers over the traps, the traps themselves (pre-drilled ready for the nail sakes), and the appropriate sized nails for staking the traps down, and an instruction sheet on how to trap voles.
Voles are easy to trap with these kits, however voles can be prolific, and faster control can be achieved by setting higher numbers of traps.

Hori Hori Knife/Digging Tool
The Hori Hori knife or digging tool has its origins in Japan as a specialized tool for transplanting Bonsai trees. Its heavy duty narrow long blade make it the perfect tool for digging out gopher and mole burrows in any soil type, and we have used these extensively in our mole and gopher control service business for years. They also make an excellent all around gardening and weeding tool. We work directly with a manufacturer to get these made to our specifications--this particular tool has a thicker stainless steel blade and a longer wooden handle than most similar products on the market. We feel we are offering a first rate quality product at a price that's hard to match anywhere on the net.
One Trapline Hori Hori Knife --$16.95
Two Trapline Hori Hori Knives--$31.95
