    Some of the properties I worked at last year had bad mole problems. It's not my call what to do about them. The ops manager would put mole bombs in the ground but that didn't work.
    I used to step on them when I would see them running away, but then one rolled over on his back and died. He looked so cute it reminded me of my pet hamster I had as a kid. So I felt bad for stepping on them.
    Funny I thought of that, I guess I'm just itchin to get back this year.

    I've heard about sticky Juicy Fruit gum down in the holes. But supposedly it has to be Juicy Fruit, nothing else will work. I guess they eat the gum for some reason and they choke no it or something. Some people swear by it.

    I like to keep track of how many rabbit families I completely destroy when I'm mowing.

    I've had good success with The Molechaser.
    It sends out sonic pulses underground that drives moles away. I've never had any complaints.

    Someone once told me to pee down into one of their tunnels....
    so I asked a customer if he minded....

    he said, "Well, I'd really rather not have you peeing in broad daylight on my front lawn..." and laughed of course....
