    Default Moles

    Okay, our yard is the ONLY yard in the ENTIRE neighborhood with moles. We have been battling them since 1990. They are still winning. We have tried: spring-type mole traps, several different mole poisons, grubex to get rid of their food source, castor oil, moth balls, in ground sonic wave thingies (yes, I'm a girl), whirly gigs, and several suggested home remedies. We have even tried using all of the above at the same time. We still have moles. Short of hiring an exterminator, any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    C4, dynamite, deisel and nitrogen mix!

    There must be a food source for them that you just aren't getting rid of through the efforts you've tried. Do you have problems with Japanese beetles? If so, their larva are in your yard.

    Try to identify the pests you have in sufficient numbers that would cause larva in your yard. Once identified, get in touch with your local county extension agent and see if they have any advice.

    Other than that, you could pen up a pig and let it tear your yard up digging for the little buggers. That might scare them off!

    Good luck. . . .Tim

    We've seriously thought about the combination (or variances thereof) that you first suggested!! Figured the neighbors wouldn't appreciate it though.

    No japanese beetles. Only grubs and earth worms. The pig might be an option, but I'm trying to NOT have a torn up yard!

    Thanks for the response and have a great day!

    I have had a similar problem, if only for the past 2 years. I recently discoverd a poison called "worms". I found them at local big box store (HD or Lowes). I also discovered that they WORK! Read the instructions, handle with care, and only use about 1/2 worm in each hole. 1 worm, half my flowerbeds are now clear, hmmmm Just one guy did all that mess? Any way I found these guys to work.

    good luck

    Thanks for the reply. We've tried the worms too. We decided they used them for the snack at happy hour! These guys seem to be immune to every type of poison/remedy on the market, and a few that aren't on the market. Thanks again!

    You might try this! I found an old vibrator and wired it with bailing wire to my watering system hose. I left it on for a week and found that after the week I went from 100's of moles in six acres to almost none. After they are gone you must turn it back on every other week for about 8 hours to keep them out. The reason I wired it to the watering system it made the sound travel further.
