    Question How to really eradicate moles

    I know we've talked about this before, but I wanted to bring this subject back up. I was hoping you guys have some really good solutions. I need something that works. I don't want to use those dumb electronic noise makers. They'll just push them to other areas of mine or my neighbors yard. I need them GONE. As if my yard wasn't badly rutted and uneven already. Is there a poison that works? What have you used that produces results? Thanks.

    This works, not cheap, but it works. If you decide to spend the money, shop around, the prices vary A LOT.

    Looks super cool and effective, but man that if far out of my budget. If local rental were a real option, I'd be posting videos.

    What about something like the gopher machines that plow a line of poison underground?

    Gophers aren't moles? I would think different animal, different solution? I saw nothing on their site talking about moles. Heck, it looks even more expensive than the Rodenator. Yup. Might have to try the beer, chair, and shovel method. This is where you tamp all the tunnels down, sit on the chair near your shovel, quietly drink a beer and watch for movement with your lawn. Once you find him, trap him with the shovel. The next part is up to you. Rinse and repeat.

    My only problem with that it, I might not have enough beer to complete the task.

    Anyone ever try carbon monoxide? Farm once told me to hook a pipe to the tailpipe and a mole hole.

    That is the method I have been using, but have to admit, I kill more beer than moles! They are really bad, this year. I mowed my lawn yesterday, and have numerous piles of dirt 18 inches high and 24-30 inches across, and evidence of the burrows under the surface, today. We may need to find something that works reasonably well, but is also in budget.
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride!

    It's supposed to work very well.

    And, FYI, it's not really a 'trap'. ;)

    I don't have a mole problem but I did see this fella running back and forth when we last had a thaw. He was on the surface of the snow for four or five feet and I grabbed a trap from my shop and laid it cross-ways on his trail. Within an hour he ran over the trap and was caught right across the back. Maybe this sort of booby-trap would work with moles? Could you open a tunnel and lay a trap inside so the pan blocks the path?

    I believe this is a vole, and he is the biggest one I've ever caught. The trap is just shy of 4 in.
