Out of the blue we got moles raking havoc in yard!

The only thing I know about dealing with moles is from the movie caddie shack :?

Suggestions?

There's about a million old wives tales about getting rid of moles. For instance; stick some of those kiddies windmill things into the ground in the hills and the rattling is supposed to scare them off. But, in the words of Jasper Carrot (english comedian) - "There's only one way to get rid of a mole; blow its bloody head off!"

Get yourself a pellet gun and a couple cases of beer.

Figure out what they eat and then bait them.

We had moles. Then we got a cat. Now, we still have moles. Dead moles. In our living room. :evil:

You had to mention moles. We barely have a front yard and we have moles. Moles love grubs. They dig out your yard looking for those creepy little creatures that eventually turn into June bugs. I've yet to find the cure. But here's what I've tried.

1. Juicy Fruit Gum. Do not touch it with your hands. Use new gloves. Roll the gum into round spirals and push them down into the entry holes. Suppossedly they swallow them, can't digest them, and they implode (or something like that).

2. Take a hose. Turn it on full blast and shove it into one of the entry holes. Maybe you can flush the little buggers out. I don't think they can swim, so maybe you'll drown the ba*stards!

3. Get a mole trap. They're awesome statuesque pieces of metal. They have two rows of spikes that when activated shear the little buggars into mincemeat.

4. Buy the poison pellets. Get them at any homecenter. They're in a yellow cone shaped tube. Again, pour a few into the openings or any of the tunneled areas. Don't touch anything with your hands or they know it's you. These rodents think it's a grub and once eaten it will eat their innards!

4. Buy a grub killer. If you kill the grubs the moles will move on to other greener pastures.

I'm sure there are other ideas out there including pounding down the mole tunnels on a constant basis and eventually they're suppossed to get tired of redigging. All I know is our mole got tired of me trying to catch it and went across the street. Now the neighbors yard looks like the golf course in the movie Caddyshack.
