Our Blistering Defense works very well on disrupting feeding patterns.

Will not kill but will make them leave.

You need to dig a little into an active mound and insert the trap so the mole needs to go through it to go out or along its tunnel. Works pretty good. Also good for ground squirrels and pocket gophers.

In Wisconsin we just have the little moles, mice sized, that you see the little raised trails through the lawn to know they're there. I just returned from North Central Florida where I must have met the cousins of your moles.

Just before we came back we caught the one digging in that yard with the very type of trap you described. These guys are rat sized critters that leave sand piles everywhere about 6-8 inches high and a foot or more in diameter.

Another thing I heard down there is that the vibration of regular mowing pushes them out of the area. Along those same lines of thought, I have seen sound producing windmills and electronic sonic devices to chase moles, but these have limited range of effectiveness.

Planting castor beans is also said to be effective. I'll let you know about mid-summer.
