We just bought a new house this year, and to our surprise we have discovered we may have a mole problem. I don't recall seeing this problem before we moved in, but it seems to have escalated since we resided in our new home. We have monitored the problem and think there is a chance we may have a colony of them residing in our yard. What recommendations would you have to help quickly eliminate this problem? Products names, and cost would be greatfully useful?

I also had a mole problem. My solution- eliminate their food source- worms and grubs. I used a commercial grub killer from my local home improvement store. I have to do this a couple time a year to ensure the moles don't return.

At this point i have no respect for the varments & want them gone as you do.. so here are 2 things that you can do #1 use mouse traps w/crunchy peanut butter(ball head pin needle amount) or a pumkin seed on the mouse trap (i have heard works great!!) # 2 mole chaser remedy- 1 1/2 TBSP Tobasco Sauce, 1 TBSP of liquid dish soap, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 Qt of water ...Mix all ingredients & pour into mole runways( from Backyard Gardener ) Good luck ! I can relate to your frustration!!

I have heard that if you kill the worms and grubs, the moles will dig all over the yard looking for food before they give up. Expect a lot of "Aeration" :)

We use the Scissor type mole traps. They work pretty well. We have caugth 3 with the scissor type (reminds me of a scissor jack) and 1 with the standard forked traps.

You can't control the neighbors yards so expect some to come back.
