    They are after the grub worms. There is a chemical that will kill the grubs and then the moles will leave.

    i wouldn't go with the mole trap. i would make sure you are not over-watering your lawn-because the moles are attracted to the worms etc. so i would get something to stop the worms as your first step

    i've only had trouble with moles maybe once or twice, they just left a huge trail in my yard of ground up dirt. they didn't give me much trouble, i wouldn't worry about them too much unless you are having serious issues on a weekly basis.

    That doesn't kill the moles does it? And what part of the country do you find moles in? I have never seen one around here is why I'm asking.

    No they are not. And I don't have groundhogs here. I am blessed with MOLES. TONS OF THEM


    Best resolution: chewing gum!!! kind of manual intense but instead of poison or some other natural chemical that will irritate worms or something else......use a small gardening shovel and dig on top of the mole hill till you reach their tunnel. Drop a few pieces of gum into them and cover. Moles will eat the gum and die. No body to take care of!

    When I lived in Georgia, my neighbor had a dachshund who would dig up and kill moles. Ended the mole problem!
