    Ron doesn’t know what to do anymore!! :(

    He says there’s been a slight mole
    Problem every year but this year is the worst ever and he’s out of his depth

    He tried a couple different kinds of mole deterrent sprays that you spray on and then water in, and the first time it seemed to help slightly but this last time appears to have done nothing and the mole problem just continues to get worse.

    what do we do???? :eek:

    Just go to Lowes and get mole and gopher bait ! It is toxic to those critters ! They have been bad here this year too ! Don`t let your dogs dig till they are gone ! Its never bothered our dogs but it is poison ! Get the kind that you poke a hole along the trail and put a pellet or two in,, then cover up !

    Are they ruining your lawn Ronni? Unsightly?
    Can you possibly just live with them? Rodent populations tend to be cyclical, they build up some years and then just collapse. Some disease gets them. It might not be a problem next summer.

    If it is moles you have, they eat grubs, worms etc
    so you must have quite a few grubs in the lawn.
    These moles are ridding your lawn of them.

    Was the powder Ron used a Milky Spore? That is a biologic control for Japanese beetle grubs.

    Just some random thoughts here Ronni.

    Moles are one of the critters we do not have in my part of the state.

    I once had moles in one of my garden beds....:(a family had set up residence. I only discovered them by lifting a rock and discovering their tunnel. I dropped in some Decon replaced the rock and waited.....the next day the Decon was gone so I put some more in the exposed tunnel......again the Decon was gone.......I added more.... it remained in the tunnel, no more moles. :)
