How do I whack a mole?

Q – I have moles in my yard. How do I get rid of them?

A – Like most critters in and around your yard, if you can take away their food they will leave you alone.

Moles eat grubs and earthworms, so let’s either get rid of them (mostly impossible) or fake out the moles into eating poison ones.

One of the best baits out there is called Talpirid. Simply take a screwdriver and make a hole directly into the burrow and place the worm-looking bait (Talpirid) down that hole. Then gently push the dirt back into the hole. DO NOT smash down the burrows.

Come back in one week and check your bait.

Depending on how many burrows you have in your yard, one box should be good for one season.

Happy hunting!
