i have never seen them as bad as they are this year.  I'm going down and pickup up some of that pesticide stuff tomorrow that kills the beetle or bugs the moles like to eat.  

Anything else I should pick up?  Thanks.

I just call the local mafia and tell them I know where some moles are. They come over and the problem disappears.

I wish I still had the link for the mole exploder device. That was cool.

i've tried the guillotine things. The best thing to do is to buy the pesticide that eradicates the grubs that the moles feed on. Then they go elsewhere.

My father always put a piece of hose on the tailpipe of the truck and fed it into a properly prepared gopher/mole hill.

Brillant. Smoke those bastards out.

how much money you want to spend?


Rodenator


I know people that have bought these and made it a side business to pay for it- hire it out at $50 an hour blowing up rodents.    It is pretty loud, though.    Not to good for the suburban neighborhood.

That's the one I was thinking of before.

I have gotten very pissed at them, I have tried the peanuts, spring loaded traps, and the grub gone stuff. None work very well, but with the grub stuff I had fewer ants and japanese beatles.
I have considered five galons of gas down a hole, but have seen what a yard looks like after that.
I thought M-80's , scatters the dirt to much.
My dog is good at getting them but he leaves big holes in the yard.
One of the local pest control companies has a new program that for $175 they come out and seed the runs with poisionious grubs, and they will come out as many times as needed for one year to re apply. sound ok. But then we have the poision problem and the dog, not a good idea.
So I went extreme, I got a buddy to rent a tiller for his tractor ( I paid) and tilled the whole damn yard down 10 inches, followed by drag level and add grub stuff with the new seed.
I my thinking I disrupted the food supply, and thus reduce the population of moles.
My yard was thirty or thirty five years of crabgrass and moss, and had many small chunks of shingles from the tornado that I could not rake up.
Start over balance the enviroment with compost and other good stuff, and maybe the moles and I can co-exsist.

I use a pellet gun,i would like to use something bigger but the police in town seem to have a problem with it. Take care of them now before they spread out.

A friend of mine had a golden retriever that would sniff them out, dig them up and then throw them around the yard until they quit moving. When the dog got tired of playing with it he would then just throw the mole in a five gallon bucket of water and throw another bucket with dirt in it on top of it to make sure they drown. Damn things look like a potato with legs.
