Answer: Trapping is the only sure-fire way of getting rid of moles and gophers. If it's any consolation, moles like moist, organic soil full of grubs and other delicacies. So, their presence is a compliment to your abilities as a gardener. To trap moles or gophers (scissors-type traps are most effective), find the main run by probing the soil between mounds and placing your trap there. Moles dig seldom-used tunnels off the main run, so you may have to place the trap several times before you discover their main run. It takes time and patience, but you can trap and kill the moles that have taken up residence in your yard.
