Mole Eradicator

Axle, son's Boxer mix.

Since son purchased property we have been trying to eliminate moles. Bombed them, trapped them, drowned them and gassed them, ran over tunnels and mounds with rollers - didn't work.

Now we no longer have to flatten tunnels and mounds, we have to fill holes dug in the yard and dispose of the dead moles.

Try this when trapping them.. Moles make a major run, it is usually straight. All the off shoot are feeding runs. You never know when they are in those. But they always travel the main run back to their burrow. Step on that straight run, put your trap there so when they push up they get "nailed". good luck..Greg

Both of them enjoy hunting moles, but the dog also thinks of them as snacks. Dead mole disposal problem solved.
