  • Patent number: 10034470
    Abstract: A mole trap includes a molded housing with first and second portions. One of the portions includes two molded posts. A trigger and release plate are each pivotally mounted on one of the two posts, and are substantially encased within the housing. The trap may include a first shaft connected to a trigger pad, and a spring loaded second shaft. The first shaft is slideable with respect to the second shaft, which is connected to a plurality of tines. A release is operative to hold a trigger in a set position, and thereby hold the spring loaded second shaft in the set position. The first shaft is operable to displace the release in response to an upward force applied to the trigger pad, wherein the release is operable to release the trigger in response to the displacement, wherein the trigger is operable to release the spring loaded outer shaft.

  • Patent number: 6532696
    Abstract: A holder for a liquid insect bait, comprises of vacuum or otherwise formed upper and lower halves, which when brought together and sealed about their flanges, form a container for the liquid bait. The back end of the halves contain depression within their flanges, that furnishes a passage for charging the liquid bait into the formed container, when the two halves are sealed together. The bottom of the holder is preformed, to form various cavities, flow passages, chambers, where the liquid bait will flow, by gravity, when charging the station for usage. An entrance cavity at the front of the holder can be instructionally cut, to form an entrance passage for the insects, such as ants, to walk up an inclined ramp to attain access to the liquid bait, as deposited within the various chambers and cavities, during usage of this holder.
