How do I get rid of moles?
I have found several hold in the ditch next to the road on my property. I believe they are dug by moles. I'm worried about the damage they might be able to do to my yard. How can I make them go away before they cause trouble.
Moth balls worked for us. When you find one of their tunnels drop a couple of math balls in it. I don't think it killed them it just made them find another yard to destroy.
Moth balls work, as suggested. Otherwise, you might try flooding them out. Insert a hose into the tunnel and turn on the water. You likely will see a mole or two scamper elsewhere from somewhere along the tunnel. Don't worry, they can dig out quickly enough that they won't drown. As noted, your neighbor may not appreciate your solution.
Find an active tunnel then cover it, If open again then know for sure it is an active tunnel. Can use lure, circular rodent or loop choking style traps. The last two types requires digging.
Or gas the moles with smoke bomb available at hardware stores. Or use dry ice, the carbon dioxide will cause suffocation.
Of course these are not PETA friendly. So a no kill solution and just make them go away is to use garden wind spinners near the hole which cause the ground to vibrate and moles will move on to some place else.
