The Gophinator gopher trap
The Trapline Mole Trap--Standard Size
The Trapline Mole Trap--Large Size
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 large size trap is the preferred trap for use on European Moles found in the UK and throughout continental Europe. Many users from Michigan, Ohio, and Canada have reported better success with the large size trap, as those geographic regions seem to have relatively large moles. Finally, regardless of your geographic location, if you are trapping moles in very sandy soil(which can be a challenge), you may do well to give the larger size trap a try.

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 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.
