This may be resurrecting an old subject but I have a huge problem with Mole
hills on my lawn in Brittany, France.
I have tried everything except poison, this I cannot use because I have
three dogs and would not risk their health.
I have found that mole hills do not appear in the parts of the lawns that
have been treated with "Weed & Feed". Does this product have an effect on
the worms in the teated areas or dirctly on the moles? If this is the answer
is it possible to make a weed and feed substitute as the commercial product
is very expensive here in France and my lawns cover a large area.
Any help and advise would be must welcome as would a recipe for weed and
Many thanks in advance
hi gavin, i have killed amost a hundred moles in the last 3 years, i
use sissor mole traps i got from gemplers.com. i tried the products
advertised as mole reppellants and they did not work. i did notice when
i put amonium nitrate fertilizer on my back lot that i have garden and
fruit trees that the moles left to the surrounding areas for several
Wee and Feed will certainly affect them. I had a problem with them.
I also had some black fungus on the fescue. I spread fungicide and they
didn't like that.It rained in the next few days .
Several came out of their holes and raced around screaming over the
next few days. I didn't know they could make a sound.
My daughter caught one and took it to school. She had to feed it
crickets etc every few minutes.
I guess the others went into the woods or died.
You guys are making this way too tough...
All you have to do is light a fusee (road flair) and shove it in the
hole. Kick the dirt into the hole so the acrid smoke won't come out,
instead it will fill the tunnels and the moles will leave. If they
don't,,, they will die.
The sulfer smell is way too strong to exist. You may have to hit them
a few times before they quit coming back.
This works great!
I heard this on public radio today, Juicy fruit gum, I guess they ea
and and it messes up there innerds. Dont know if it really works

I too had ?have a mole problem in a big way. I tried all the logica
and some times plain daft methods recommended. Finally I found tha
the only reliable way is to trap them using half barrel traps, als
known as dufus traps in areas where there are large molehills an
scissor traps where the runs are visible as raised ruts on the surface
I get about a 1 in 5 success rate and have the satisfaction of knowin
not hoping that I have gotten rid
