So whats the best way for me to remove the moles from my lawn ? I know grub control is important when is the best time to throw down grub control ? And can you spread grub control and grass seed / fert at the same time

First off: Don't fall for the Old Wives Tale that "if you have moles, you need to treat for grubs." As grubs aren't the primary food source of moles. Such that, you'll get rid of the grubs, AND STILL HAVE MOLES!!! As other have stated the "best" method of mole control is trapping. And that is literally "'hit & miss"' at best. Otherwise you could try certain types of mole repellents, such as "Mole Med". The upside is that they do work, the downside is that their residual effectiveness is rather short.
