Whats the best way to get rid of moles in your yard?

My dad and I have been taking really good care of our yard. Fertilizing it, adding more grass seed in the bare spots, all that. Right now our yard is very green. But we have mole/moles. Every year about this time we always get mole holes in the front yard. Whats the best way to get rid of them?
Thanks, Marc Williams

Harpoon mole traps. If you're squeamish about killing them you can pee in their holes (or poor it from a cup if you're worried about the neighbors talking). They don't like human urine so supposedly it will drive them away although personally I haven't tried this method. Poison is no good because they won't eat it.

Simple... Light a road flare and shove it in their hole. Try to keep all of the smoke and sulfer from escaping. This works for ground squirls as well. Trust me,,, they will move.

Make your yard unappealing compared to your neighbors. I would first try and elminate their food source: Grubs.
MilkySpore takes a few years before becoming totally effective in controling grubs, but your hardware store should have something in a pesticide product.
(Personally I opted for the MilkySpore)

Remove their food source. No food and they will go away. You might have grubs.

I heard if you roll up pieces of Juicyfruit or double mint gum and stick it in the holes they think it a grub and eat it. If your are squeamish like RoyDMercer asks though about killing them then don't try this.

Take away their food supply. Their eating the grubs in the lawn, so kill the grubs. I also use the gopher bombs to gas their tunnels. Haven't gotten rid of them, but have reduced their damage and kept them off the lawn.

Moles eat more earthworms than they do grubs. The only good mole control are mole traps, if they are really a problem.
My cats and dogs dig them up and do more damage than the mole would of.

Actually it gets stuck in the intestinal systems and ends up killing them.

I had to google this, and found it's a myth, and you know if it's on the web, it has to be true. ;) I still find it funny, and bazare at the same time.
