Default Need Mole erradication help

In all my years, Ive never seen as many Moles as this year.
Maybe its the wet summer we had. I dunno.
My place is looking like somebody has been throwin grenades all over.

In early Spring I covered the place with Spectracide. Thats suppose to kill off their food source, but I think it fertilized their food source.

I need some help/tips/advice, on some way to stop these varmints.

There must be 100s of them, seriously.

Help !!!!

Jim

My fiancé had a few in her backyard last year and read on line that if you put dog and cat fur in the holes it gets rid of them. She got a bag full of hair from the dog groomer and spread it around the yard.

Sounds crazy I know but they were soon gone and we haven't noticed any this year.

figure out if they are moles (carnivore) or voles (herbivore) then follow the appropriate steps. An air rifle works effectively on both if you can coax them above ground.

Turn on a water hose down those holes and wait for them to come out with your .22

Honest, I have literally set out in the areas where they are active, and sit ,and sit, hours, and never see them.

These are definetly Moles,
the cats killed one, and of course ,laid at the back door. It was the size of young rabbit, must have weighed 1-2 lbs, huge .

Somebody said juicy fruit gum pieces in their trails will kill them.
May try the dog/cat hair also, anything , these things are everywhere this year.

I tried this stuff from home depot , it looks like lawn fertilizer. You put it on quarterly and they go away and don't come back. I battled forints a few years ago. I tried everything, this is the only thing that worked. My neighbor has them right now and they don't come to my side.
