    I'm usually to busy/ Lazy to make a serious effort to rid the yard of them but I do go after "problem moles." Anybody here trap them?

    I have 5 mole traps. I used them a bunch at my previous home. Only had to once at this house. I have used them at my neighbor's on request though.

    I have a few that have been in the family for generations. I'll try to get a pic, but you mount a 12 gauge shell to them and the trigger goes in the tunnel. The mole trips it and BLAM! Never use em at the house anymore, with the kids around and such, but we still set em at the cabin sometimes for the fun of it.

    High brass leaves a pretty good crater. Not my pic but this is it. Called a Molgun

    Easy set mole eliminator. Sold by TSC works almost every time. Mole is on the end of the trap when it comes out of the ground.

    This. These scissor type traps are the best and easiest.

    Get a good spray for your yard. KILL THE GRUBS living under ground. Moles favorite food. Get rid of the grubs get rid of the moles.

    i got a mole problem. i need a lite 2 wheel cart to pull behind me, that will hold the propane tank, that is grill sized. then i can let the propane flow. not for the surface tunnel, but the one that runs below it. usually bout a foot.
    you have to be careful, should ya try this, and ya want to light it.. it could blow up your yard.. least wear safety glasses, an ear plugs.. should you do..
    i plan too..
