    First of all i live in ohio, i'm spreading Mole-out mole repelling granules made by Dr t's nature products. it's designed to make the ground taste bad and the moles move away or over to the neighbor's. Can i spread this on my customers property's with out a license?:confused:

    Michigan considers it a part of turf pest control, without turf cert it would fall under vertibrate pest. either way, as far as I know if you use a poison, no you can't , trapping, yes you Probably can do that. touchy area, call your local dept. of ag. and ask.

    I think the answer in your state is no. It is a pesticide.

    In TN I believe you have to trap them alive or at least w/ squirrels and Racoons you have to have a live trap. If you are doing it for hire. Be Careful

    You have to trap MOLES live ?? Don't tell me you have to trap Mice live also?? I really doubt that. But considering some of the crazy laws states have, maybe I shouldn't be surprised.

    The "spike" traps work well, but they take a lot of effort since you have to find the active tunnels and move the traps around the yard as the moles move to different areas.
