How do I get rid of moles

Post by db54 »

I think I have moles as they are leaving a large volcano of earth behind them. They are not in the grass but digging under gravel on my steps and they went between a rock wall and asphalt. Help!!!!

I might look normal but believe me, I talk to animals and wait for them to reply.

Caddyshack comes to mind - boy are they hard to get rid of.
Truths can be backed up by facts - do you have any?

go to growers supply and buy a black hole mole trap or two.
dig to find their tunnel.
place the traps in such a way the mole will walk into it when walking in the tunnel.
usually two traps - facing opposite directions in the tunnel.
cover the trap with a pail and seal it off with dirt so there's no light.

the mole will be dead.

I have used the growers supply traps for a few years now but use them a bit different. I go to the most recent mound of dirt, ( you may need to flatten all mounds you find then the next day it is easier to know where to put the trap ) find the pocket gopher hole near or under it . I place the trap part way into the hole but leaving the small hole exposed to the light . I have been told that the gopher will come back to block the hole. For me this has worked fantastic, got about 8 - 10 a year on 2 acres. This year only had 2. Good Luck

I hear they don't like the vibrations in the soil from Wind Spinner thingies.
