Moles!!!!!

Q&A

We have tried everything! what is the best way to get rid of these menaces. we have our lawn and garden treated for grubs but I think they are after the earthworms mainly. My perennial beds and lawn are just a major highway for them. we have killed 3 with traps, but am looking for another, quicker solution. my neighbors on either side of us also have them and have tried everything. All of our community, Lake Quivira, is riddled with them. HELP, please. Carol :-)

    I do not have a magic bullet for your issue with moles. Extension recommends that use of traps. So my advice would be to keep setting the traps or maybe invest in a few more and continue the hunt. Do not waste your money on poison peanuts, repellants or other quick fix products as trapping is the only effective method.
