The Q&A Archives: How do I get rid of Moles creating large mounds in my front yard

Question: How do I get rid of moles that are destroying my front lawn.

Answer: Although there are lots of reported remedies for getting rid of gophers and moles, including plants and homemade concoctions, nothing really works except trapping the creatures. Gophers and moles feed on grubs and other insects in the soil. As long as you have healthy soil teaming with beneficial insects and their larvae, you'll have the potential for attracting the critters. To get rid of them, invest in a scissors-type gopher trap, and set it carefully - as often as necessary to catch and kill the entire population. Once you've gotten rid of them, encourage your neighbors to do the same.
