You will have to discourage him from being in your yard.
1. Remove his food supply. Odds are you have a good supply of grubs
compared to your neighbors. I've used milkyspore, and besides not
having a dead lawn, the moves have moved away. Most of the time.
2. Remove the mole's desire to futher by smashing in his head. If
you see him, use a shovel, but HD sells mole traps.
I'm not for option 2, since 1 worked for me.

pour bleach into the hole. then pour ammomia into the hole. do not
inhale this toxic mixture. this will create clorine gas which is
heavier than air and will sink into the hole and kill the varmints in
the ground never to be seen again.
By coincidence, I heard someone on a radio call-in show yesterday say that
dried coyote urine (available commercially) can be scattered around mole
tunnels. Supposedly, they will leave the area because they believe
predators are present.
Note: I have never tried this, but it sounded interesting.
Actually, it's one of the most effective ways that there is, to keep garden
pests (deer, rabbits, etc.) out of gardens,. Many studies have shown that.
Odor-based repellents that act upon fear are the ones that get the best
For whitetail deer, studies have shown that bobcat urine is significantly
more effective than coyote urine. Someone farther up in the thread joked
about providing the repellant themselves. Actually, studies have shown that
to be also effective, but much less so than coyote.
Coyote urine comes in both a liquid and a dried form (humans can't smell
it, even the liquid).
How so? One doesn't need to treat the entire lawn, only the areas around
the beds with the plants that are a food source for the pest. A 16oz
container of the dried runs about $15, and a gallon [also comes in 8oz at
about $20) goes for about $115. Considering a little goes a long way, and
it's more effective than probably any other repellant, how is it expensive?
I suppose it all depends on how much you'd like to keep your garden beds
looking as you planned them, when you set out the plants/seeds.
There are dispensers that shelter the product from just such an occurance.
