On a couple of days this month I had problems with my traps freezing, which caused them to fail. I have never had this problem before and I think I should have avoided placing them in the late evening when the temperature was dropping rapidly to below zero.
February 2018 Clean Moles !!
Although this week has been very wet and one site I worked on had tunnels running with liquid mud, it has amazed me that I have been catching moles that still have very clean , mud-free coats. I assume they must have water repellent fur.. How they do not drown in these tunnels is also another mystery. Although they are great swimmers, a completely water filled tunnels must give them problems. Maybe they have scuba kits !
