    Find a landscape supply dealer and ask for Talpirid mole treatment. Cut 2 of these "worms" in half and install in four active tunnels with a hand spade/trowel. No more moles!

    Have you not seen Caddyshack?? Just get yourself some C4 plastic explosives and shape it into the form of a squirrel and put it in the tunnel. Get a safe distance away and watch the show.

    As you are sure it is moles, you can try the Talpirid worms. You can also go to ACE Hardware and purchase a knock-off version of this product. The cost is somewhere like 20.00 for 10-12 worms. Read the label on installation.
    Moles are Hemophilliacs, so let your mind wonder about things to put down into the holes. They are blind also and go by sound and smell........ So, What will make them bleed?

    If you've got a free weekend.....

    Get a lawn chair....

    A good shovel and bulb fork....

    A six-pack to hone your skills.....

    Watch for moving hills and take a whack at them.

    Above is the most effective method. You have to watch them alittle while to see which are the active tunnels. Wack the or trap them. They are not dumb by any means. Then kill the grubs they feed on.
