    spread grub control, take away the food source and the moles usually go away, set traps for the ones that won't leave, ( or stand guard with a pitch fork) then you can't put the dirt back in the tunnel so just spead the piles as a top dressing, roll the yard to compact the raised tunnels.

    I've got a mole problem too, so I've been doing searches to find the solution. It sounds like traps and poison are the best.

    I don't want to do traps if possible so I've been looking at poison.
    I got some Kaput poison. If that doesn't work I'll look into Talpirid, which is supposed to really work great, but costs a lot more.
