talprid mole baits, you use a latex glove poke a hole thru the tunnels, the tunnel that is repaired within a day is a travel tunnel, place the bait in the travel tunnel.

You might want to check your state laws and see what license is needed to use Poison baits like Talprid.


Riggles

I am going with Humble and Talprid as far as ease and sucess rate. Yes trapping can be a lot of fun but as Slow Dog suggests in the link given. Being retired you have time for that type of Fun. As a Full Service Pest Control company I offer trapping. However I look for the Fastest and Easiest way. Both Trapping and Poison have their advantages. Pocket Gophers and Moles are best Poisoned IHMO.

BTW there is a thread today in the Florida about Trapping.
