Getting rid of a mole

Hi all - I haven't tried to poison this damned thing, but I have tried one of the mole guillotines to no avail. A friend at work suggested used kitty litter sprinkled around tunnel entrances- apparently the cat urine scares moles away. Sounds logical to me, but before I subject myself to a litter box, I'd like your opinion. TIA.

You need a Cat. We have two outdoor kitties, and they are freaking RUTHLESS. I have ZERO problems with moles, gophers, or rabbits. They kill everything in sight. The downside is I'm stuck cleaning up the bloody gut-pyles that they leave for me by the garage door. It's a fair trade. :-)

the still-alive-gopher had actually pushed the spent cartridge completely out of the hole the following morning. I've used these bombs for years with varying degrees of success but this is the first time I've had this happen.

J.A. Michel says...

Be careful with "Gopher Gassers". Years ago I was using them. They weren't working very well and I decided to stuff a ball of crumpled newspaper in the holes after throwing in a cartridge. That worked better but the last time(!), the cartridge didn't go in very far and the newspaper blew out. There were some burning embers which I stomped on to put out, but the fire spread. Then I got the rake and tried to get rid of the leaves that were catching on fire. Then, a friend showed up and tried to pull the garden hose over but it must have been kinked because no water came out. The fire was spreading and I called the Fire Department. You haven't lived until you watch your neighbor's family line up next to their pool looking at the fire in the woods behind their place. The FD put out the fire and hosed down all the dried leaves. They asked me how it happend and I explained. He said he had never heard that excuse before and I got the feeling I was getting off without a fine. He dumped 200 gallons of the remaining water down the gopher hole. The criters didn't show up for a month, but they did return.

Shanghai McCoy blurted out in alt.home.lawn.garden:

Call a professional to come set some traps. I've had mole problems for yrs (because my neighbor has a grub farm going in his yard). Even though I put down Grub-X twice a yr. Traps got 3 moles in little over a week.
Most pro's make you sign a contract that has them coming once a week to check or move the traps. THis contract costs X dollars. Then you pay per mole caught.
It was well worth it for me.
