Thanks to moles and chipmunks my front yard is beginning to resemble the Viet Cong's tunnels of Cu Chi. How do I kill these little bastards?

Why am I suddenly envisioning you as Bill Murray in "Caddyshack"?

I'm a landscaper by trade. I said that cuz I've seen customers of mine spend hundreds and even thousands of dollars on the non lethal remedies. Don't do it. Find someone who traps them with kill traps and get rid of them that way.

Eliminate the food source "grubs and bugs", and they will move on, use Diazion to kill the bugs, and the rodents move on.

Well since you made the connection to the VC. I'll tell ya a fun and rather messy way to do it. However your yard would than look like it was carpet bombed. It's the same way I got rid of the moles at my grandparents oh so many years ago. Though they lived in the country at the time so it was no big deal. To quote a friend of mine who was quoting an unknown source "there are very few problems in life that can't be fix with the aplication of explosives"

Also a wives tale......Been there done that, moles just got more active searching for an alternative food source. Voles, moles etc. feed on earthworms, crickets and all sorts of other burrowing insects. Grubs are a delicacy to them and eliminating them will NOT eliminate the moles.

Moles love gum but cannot digest it. Kills them every time.

You must go catch them before they infiltrate your yard and blend in and move among the masses. The best place to do this is if you can, catch them on the Ho-Chip-Munk trail....

Ever play that game next to skeeball at Chucky Cheese where you grab a mallet and smack the mole when he pops up out from one of a dozen holes in the table? Try that. But make sure you down a couple shots of Jack Daniels first.[booze][smash]

I do know 10/22's can be a fun way, but just leaving them (burrowing rodents-muskrats) lay, hoping to show the others does not work. After a couple weeks of intense hostile actions towards them, the population [i]may[/i] have been temporarily reduced, but they recovered quickly. We had to cease fire, they won the battle...Until the next year. We flooded the quarry, the water level raised 40 feet. They lost.

I don't know about the chipmunks but my dad swears by moth balls for the moles. I don't see why they'd eat em but he'll drop one or two in every tunnel he finds in the spring and he's free of em the rest of the summer. On the other hand it's possible they can't stand them and leave cause it stinks up the ground or something. I really don't know but it seems to work for him.

How to get rid of tunneling rodents? KEEP A CORK IN YOUR ASS AT ALL TIMES! QUIT LETTING THEM IN!

Get a Doberman. For some reason mine has a penchant for catching those things. She's up to 2 a day this week.

well shit, thanks, good to know.

Best get the exterminator, theyre not too expensive, and its not like calling animal control on one or two pests that you can dispatch yourself. Just as a wacky idea: You might want to ask the neighbors if they've all got the same problem. In which case, maybe you can make back some of the money of buying a rodex.

Cement it all in and paint it green. No worries.
