    What is the best method for getting rid of these little bast$#@s. My dog is going to dig up my entire yard if I don't take action quickly.

    chew up gum and toss into runs,they dont have a gag reflex so when they chew on the gum they choke to death...

    Yea check out the web site posted, thats where I got all my info from, then practice,practice,practice, before long you will get one almost each time you place a trap. Buy more than one trap, some moles are clever, today I got sick of moving the one trap around I had placed so I put up 3 in various locations. I think I have found an intelligent mole, he keeps advoiding the trap.

    The one in the pic is a Victor out of sight trap, they are about $11.00 and I have yet to have one snap without having a dead little mole in it.
    Nothing like the feel as you remove the trap and it looks like this.........:D

    1. Get a cat, maybe 2
    2. Get a bag of Grub-X and spread it
    3. Kill every japenese beetle you see

    Spread Grub X, then spray lawn with liquid insect killer.
