    Get it sprayed by a profesional company ASAP the have it sprayed yearly in the month of August. Not that expensive.
    This is something you do not want to put of or all your grass will be dead.

    Believe it or not I have used one of the ultrasonic pest chasers. Put one in the front yard and one in the back and had no more pop up holes. After a couple of summers the tunnels were filled in and wavy wonky yard was no more.

      Oh I wish they would have worked for us, we have them all over the yard. They don't seem to work. But thank you for your advice

    During extended spring rains the moles move due to flooding out their burrows, its the perfect time to have a look, get a shovel and if your lucky you will see them moving just under the sod. Sunday I got 5!

    I have heard of people having success by putting exlax into the holes?

    Juicy Fruit gum, not kidding-messes with their digestive system and they succumb.

  • Castor oil or a windmill - they hate vibrations

    Hi there, moles don't like the smell of Castor Oil. Make sure to get it in granular or liquid form, not the stuff you buy at supermarkets. It's not strong enough and sprinkle it around the area.
