Moles #118527

Asked March 23, 2013, 4:01 PM EDT

I live in East Texas, approximately 20 miles north of Crockett ... I have had a severe mole hill problem for the past several years .. I've done everything ... recomended.  Poisen works best, but only for a short time.  I don't use  spring traps because I don't ever know where the little buggers are going... my yard is around 2 acres ... I'm OK with the rest of the property having mole hills ... what is the best long lasting method of stopping these yard torpedos ...

When you say "hills" that tells me you are talking about pocket gophers, not moles. In any case, go to the link below and you wiull find the publications to deal with both. Gophers leave the piles of dirt, moles leave the runs all over the place and it feels like you are walking on a sponge when you step across the yard.
