    You can stick juicy fruit gum and human hair into the tunnels, the hair makes them itch and the gum they eat. We did it and it worked great. We got the hair trimmings from our hair dresser.

    I have used juicy fruit gum. I don't unwrap it and I use a glove when handling so the little critters don't blame me. I shove the entire large pack into the hole. In a week I find silver wrappers everywhere around the hole. I continue doing this until I see no more silver wrappers. Also, get a cat. Just don't use poison as it will kill other animals that eat the moles. The moles are looking for grubs from japanese beetles so if you get rid of the beetles, you may not have moles. Of course, the moles love worms too.

    I keep a small box of instant mashed potatoes on hand and sprinkle a few spoonfuls where i think they travel. I do this at night since most are nocturnal. After they eat, the flakes expand in the stomach and well they die.

    NOTE: If you have pets keep these flakes out of their reach.
