    Use a screwdriver and poke little holes in the tunnels. Buy some wrigleys gum roll it up and put it through the holes. They love it and can't digest it just make sure you wear gloves because if you get your scent on it they won't eat it. you can also put down grub tratments they don't like this either but I personally go with my dogs they hunt and kill anything in my yard.

    Lesco sells a product specifically to get rid of moles. I don't remember the name of it.

    When you put out grub control, do it late in the season. YOu are actually controlling the grubs for next year. I used to make the common mistake of applying grub control too early in the season

    There's a great video explaining this in detail... I saw it on late night TV once. Several methods are used, and graphically depicted.

    Dan Akroyd does the narration.
