Yet again, after a fairly quiet summer, the moles have moved in and are leaving no blade of grass unturned. I mean, square yards of loose dirt.
How have you best gotten rid of them on your own in your yard?
I have traps (LOTS of them(, but they say that there is a trick to setting them, as in where you set them. Do you know the tricks?
I have a 'mole smoker' that clamps on the car's tailpipe and connects to a garden hose you shove in the burrow, but my current tailpipe is too large. I recommend this method, by the way, having rid myself of many of the pests from the $15 investment. Reusable until someone runs over it with the lawnmower. That's not great on the garden hose, either, btw.
Those 'firecracker' things can work, but they burn awfully darned short. They should come in a gross, not in a package of 4. Then, too, the coons or squirrels like to dig the ends up and make another
Castor oil and products based on it just haven't worked out well for me.
I never tried the Juicy Fruit or Doublemint gum in the run, because...
The artificial worms that you plant with gloves may work, but for the price you need "may" to be "DO".
