Usually when people have moles they think there are tons of them in their yard crawling around. In fact, there are about 1-2 moles per acre. They can dig 200' of tunnels per day.
If you check out your areas cooperative extension web-site they will explain how to set these traps. Please don't pour poison or moth balls into your yard, it is not healthy for you and it is illegal.
One other step to take is to eliminate their reason for being in your yard. They are looking for grubs, mainly. In the spring you can sprinkle milky spore powder over your yard which will kill the grubs, that eventually turn into Japanese Beetles. This is sold at Home Depot and is easy to research online.
