1 year ago How to capture moles? Q&A How do I get rid of moles? I have too many to capture. Thanks. - Bianca - Comments Dennis Patton 1 year ago Whether you like it or not a trap is the only effective way to get rid of moles. Poison grains don’t work, repellents are short term at best. So that leaves the trapping. Set the traps in the longer and straighter tunnels as the moles reuse these runs. Moles are most common when people live on acreage or land that backs up to an open area. Best of luck and traps do work. Dennis, Johnson County Extension Sign in with Facebook to comment. Copyright 2014 The Kansas City Star. All rights reserved.
