I am sick of the damn moles in my yard. I have put so much poison on
the grass that it now glows!!! If there are any grubs out there,
they're either eaten or dissolved by now. Mole traps are worthless, at
least in my hands. I have noticed though that they seem to avoid the
ares that have Bermuda/Crab grass. I have finally resorted to placing
Juicy Fruit gum around the the holes in the hope that they will die of
They do not work well. I used them for years without eliminating the
problem, but they work better than anything else. You have to be careful to
cover every hole the gas might escape out of; good luck on that...
I moved 5 miles away. For some reason I have no grubs, despite never
treating for them, and no moles.
the directions on the mole trap are wrong they tell you to use your foot to
smash a section of the tunnel. that is too wide. when a mole pushes throught
the dirt he pushes a dirt bow wave and it will trip the trap before he gets
under it. try only smashing a section just big enough for your traps trip
lever to fit down in, say an inch or so wide.

no matter where you go there you are
What do you do when the only sign of the moles is the hills of dirt. When I
dig down under the hills, I usually find their tunnels 7 or so inches down.
I never see signs of surface tunnels.
mabee you can run a natural gas line out
to the hole and fill in up with gas then
light it and blow him to smitherines
make sure you put a shut off valve at the
end of the line so you wont blow your self up
My Dad used to go around and seal off all the holes he could find ... the smoke
bomb them. They would come running out and scurry all over the place! lol
He would do it every spring and they didn't come back till the next year.
It was kind of strange seeing the smoke leak out of the holes all over the yard
There is no wisdom greater than kindness.

Sorry to say, but you're going to have to learn to live with the little
bastards. All you can do is get rid of the grubs. They may then leave after
a year or so but if not, bombs, traps, sprays, poison, vibrators, noise
makers, Juicy-Fruit, witch doctors, cats or voodoo dolls will not get them
all. They leave when and if they choose to.
various people have told me that
dogs in the yard will drive them other places
it has been said that
gallon jug in which to put
2 tablespoons castor oil
1/4 cup dishwashing detergent
couple oz of tabasco or equivalent
filled with water
make a hole in center of mounds
and pour down the hole into the tunnel
will send them off
