    I am having a problem with these creatures, I noticed Lowe's has an electronic device that goes into the ground and repells them. Does anybody know if it works.

    Moles are after grubs. Get a bag of grub insecticide and you will get rid of the moles. Bulge.

    Get a couple of cats from Tron and don't feed them. Boom your moles are gone. Mike.

    If its the aluminum tube with the intermittant buzzer in it than I think it works. The unit does not kill them but they leave the scene pretty quick. My neighbor has a small windmill like device going in the fresh holes. Most likely the vibration upsets the nasty little boogers. My wife pours Clorox bleach in any fresh holes and I hate to admit it but she may have hit on the best idea yet. Bleach is cheap at the Dollar store. Mole activity is down around here but coyote population is at all time high. Feral cat population seems down also.

    We had them on site at our trap club and I bought some Exlax and put small pieces in all the tunnels last year and haven`t seen them yet . Cheap way out since it can be the generic type . Works on mice too I here .

    Lately my mole problem has improved. Last year my entire yard was soft from mole runs. I have done nothing different. GrubX didn't work so I didn't do it this year.

    Last week though I think I saw what's clearing out the moles. I walked out the door and heard two huge red tail hawks screeching overhead. Another was on my front yard with a mole in his talons. I decided to watch for awhile and down came another hawk, stuck his head in the ground and pulled another mole right out. They only do this in the morning . I guess the moles are most active then and the hawks can see the dirt and grass moving up and down as the moles burrow.

    Kinda cool.

    How do the moles know there are no grubs in the yard until they have torn the place up looking for them? They eat more than grubs. Never worked for me. A good mole dog is precious, and from my experience, not very common.

    I have tried several things ( grub killer, castor oil , battery powered thumpers, etc) but the only thing that has worked well is some poisened gummy worms (called Tomcat )that the hardware store carries. Find the newest tunnels and drop half a worm through a small hole into the tunnel. These things are expensive but do work. It's what the professional exterminators use.

    Don't they have a acetylene contraption that is pushed down the hole, gas is let out and then ignited?

    Have a retired neighbor who likes to sit at the end of the run in a lounge chair holding a 12 gauge and a beer. Every now and then we'll hear 'bang' and one of the neighbors will yell out 'good shot Gary'.

    A couple of years ago traveling thru VERY rural England we came across a fence with dead moles hanging in a row. Seems as there's paid mole killers there and they hand the moles on the fence as a warning to other moles that it isn't a safe place for them.

    Let's make sure we identify the little creatures.
