I'm guessing I already know the answer ("live with it") but does anyone have any advice, good or bad, on how to get rid of gophers and or moles in the yard?

Moles can be controlled by eliminating their food source (worms, grub worms). Grub treatment is available at any lawn and garden store. Read directions carefully as most require watering after application.

You can also call a lawn service to treat the lawn.

Gas cartridges are available at hardware stores, however, caution should be used and never use gas cartridges near structures or under decks as they burn hot and can ignite nearby materials.
