Kill 'em Dead!
But why do you need to get rid of moles?
Well, truth is, even though I've been trapping moles for
33 years, I really wish I didn't have to. Actually, I
admire the little critters.
You see, all that building in your yard, garden and pasture can cause a lot of grief. So here are six reasons why you need to get rid of moles now, before it's too late.
Reason #1: They can cause you, friends or family great injury, such as a broken ankle, if you step in the wrong place in your yard. Doctor visits are expensive.
Reason #2: Mole mounds in lawns make mowing difficult. Every time the mower connects with a mound it sends dirt and dust flying everywhere, clogging up mower and lungs. Mounds can even force smaller mower engines to die and need to be restarted. To add insult to injury, mowing over mole mounds causes mower blades to become dull faster. Thus, taking time and money to repair.
Reason #3: Mole tunnels in gardens can weaken crop growth both by disrupting the earth around plants and by allowing air to reach and dry out roots. Mole activity can also introduce pests into plant root structures.
Reason #4: Mole tunnels in gardens can siphon off irrigation water intended for plants. One open mole hole near a sprinkler can drain away as much as 30% of irrigation moisture, depending on sprinkler type. Even more moisture can be removed from a soaker hose.
Reason #5: Mole holes can weaken the stability of the edges of asphalt paving, causing crumbling and breaking.
Reason #6: Just one or two moles can cause considerable damage. A front yard with 10 – 20 mole mounds showing probably has only one or two moles working the area. In fact, one mole all by itself can trash a half-acre lawn by digging as much as 100 feet of tunnels in just one day!
One more thing. Your mole problem won't go away. It'll
only get worse and harder to control if you don't act now.

I'm blushing. But no matter. Letters like these inspire me to keep sharing my mole trapping know-how.
"WOW! You DO know your stuff! I
went to the store, bought the trap that you recommend, set
it in a hole (in our newly planted lawn) and the next
morning BINGO! Caught that little sucker! I can't thank
you enough. Just wanted to tell you a big THANK YOU."
"I can't believe trapping moles
is so easy. Our yard is finally getting back into shape.
Thanks so much."
"I was about to give up when I
came across your site. I had 50+ mole mounds and more
piling up by the day. With your instructions it took a
little while, but I've about got it under control. My
neighbors are happy and I'm feeling a whole lot better
about my yard's appearance. Thank you, thank you!"
"Thank goodness! I've tried all
the BS and the varmints were still

many of the so-called remedies that you talk about. Your
sure-fire solution turns out to be the simplest and
cheapest. Go figure. My mole problem is now under control.
"Have to tell you, I got tired of tossing good money after bad re-sharpening my mower blades. I thought if I just mowed over the mounds eventually the moles would go away. Hah! Silly me. So I got your guide and took action. The cost of the guide was a lot less than fixing my blades. Now I'm money ahead, and my place looks a lot better. Thanks."
