Please help! Moles are destroying my garden bed, by digging tunnels under flowers. Some of the small plants are dying because they get completely dug out or because they are hanging

Moles feed on grubs and earthworms living in your lawn or garden. It means you have rich, healthy soil! Trapping is the only sure way of eliminating a mole population. You need to find their main runs and set scissors-type traps, resetting as often as necessary to control the entire population. If you have a lawn filled with grubs, you can control the grub population with beneficial nematodes or milky spore powder, both of which are spread on the lawn.
