    we have had relentless mole vole and shrew problems in the greenhouse, the hightunnels and under ground covers... we finally resorted to ramix? I think it what it is called. we got it at TSC. the monsters were destroying the strawberry patch, the raspberries the tomatoes... just by tunneling under the plants continually. I don't care which monster it is ... they are destroying hard work and our food. the most effective way we have found to bait them is in the black corrugated drainage pipe (2 or 3 foot sections). putting it inside the '"tunnels" along the edges of the structures they were tunneling under or through. We never had any dead animals we had to dispose of. they must die in their tunnels. or like odif... get some wild boars.

    Hey dear,

    It's an awful feeling when seeing your lovely lawn damaged by moles. Moles are active during spring and fall. So, it's the ideal time to get rid of them. I would like to share with you some tips to get rid of moles from your lawn.

    1. Moles don't like the smell of castor oil. So spray it wherever you see molehills.
    2. Maintain the lawn regularly by a professional or DIY.
    3. Avoid overwatering your lawn.
    4. Kill moles with traps.
    5. Remove their food sources like earthworm and lawn insects.
    I hope these tips would help to eliminate moles from your lawn.

    Thanks!

    Our lawn looks like that, just not quite as many mounds. Ron started using this last year on our back lawn.

    It seems that it drove them to the front lawn this year, because now we have mounds all over out front!! ‍

    I have only had luck with steel mole traps.
