    We have tried unsuccessfully—->the worms and a mechanical trap. I think we need a hungry hawk or cat.
    Good luck with this nuisance problem, I think the best solution for us would be to get rid of the grubs and that is not a winter time job

    We heard from a friend to take Juicy Fruit chewing gum and break it into small 1/4" pieces. You then put these into the mole hole. It took care of the moles in my blueberries. The moles had killed one bush. I also use the gum in my garden. Tried other brands of gum but the Juicy Fruit is the only one that worked.

    Good luck! I lost an entire bluerug embankment...
    they sound like VOLES not moles. voles eat vegetation. Moles eat grubs...(meat eaters).
    they sell a green square pellet you can break down aller & put in the trails & holes...a cat is a huge help!
    check w local garden shop (Lowe’s) for new VOLE products...
    good luck!

    Plant some Castor beans. The are highly ornamental, effective protection from moles, easy to grow annuals, however there is something to consider - the seeds are poison. But if you harvest the seed pods before maturing, you should be fine.
