If you are interested to find out how to get rid of moles in your yard, keep reading! Moles can destroy your lawn and garden, and many people find them very annoying. If you have a garden, you do not want to see it ruined, do you?
Although they can be useful in some cases (if you have grubs, for example, since moles feed on them), you can find their “work” very irritating. Your lawn can look really horrible thanks to the moles. If you want to know whether the mole tunnels under your lawn are active – pay some attention to the runways and molehills.
If you succeed in finding an active tunnel, you will be able to trap the mole. Mole traps are placed directly into the tunnels. There are many different kinds of mole traps. You can read on this on the Internet or you can ask someone to help you. If you do not want to hurt or kill the mole, you can release it somewhere far away. But if you want to kill the moles, you can buy traps designed exactly for this purpose. In case you do not have time or nerves to trap the moles, you can flood them out. Put the hose into the mole tunnel and start flooding until you see the mole trying to escape and then you can finally try to catch the mole. Your attempts to catch the mole can even look funny but the truth is that the moles are sometimes so annoying that none of us really cares for looking funny. You may even partly destroy your own lawn trying to catch the mole, but if you succeed in it, you will definitely feel relieved.
You can also try to make physical barriers. Maybe that will not save your entire lawn, but it may help you save your garden. Barriers have to be buried deep down underground.
