What size are the holes and what have you seen?
The last time rat poison was set out in my neighborhood, the squirrel
population took quite a nose dive.
Some misguided neighbor had called the township about seeing rats near
the stream and we ALL were required to hire a pest control company and
pay for it ourselves. Well, they had sorta kinda seen rats...MUSKrats,
which we discovered swimming lazily along in the pond. What a pain all
that was to go through.
Smoke bombs may be a better solution for your mole problem. With any type
of poison there's always a risk that the poison may be ingested directly by
pets or they eat something that was posioned. The main ingredients of smoke
bombs e.g sulphur are not harmful to the soil, which is handy if you want to
go vegie growing afterward.
as others have said, if you put it above ground you will be making a
mess. I used to be overrun and I would put it in the tunnels, digging a
hole with my finger, pouring the stuff, and closing it.
then I discovered that predator urine keeps them away. I have not seen
one in years.
