    Any suggestions on how to eliminate moles from the yard? PERMANENTLY. :mad:

    Douse yard in kerosene, light on fire. Bring in front end loader, dig entire yard down one foot, haul away dirt. Have them move back in from your neighbor's yard in a week anyway.:rolleyes:

    I have zero idea. I tried for 10+ years in my yard in Orlando- traps, poison, smashing. I even had the help of a resident black snake, but I always had a few tunnels. Infuriating, like Dan Akroyd on Caddyshack!

    Moles are extremely destructive to lawns. I trap mine, but have never gotten rid of them completely. I finally just told myself that they are a pest that I will have to constantly keep after.

    I use the claw traps with pretty good success.

    If you can find any of their tunnels, put in a little D-Con or any other brand of rodent poison. If you can get them to eat it, they won't bother you again. And, if you have a dog or cat and it finds one of the dead moles, the poison won't hurt your pets.
    I've used this for field mice and gophers, but their tunnels are easy to find and fill with food.

    i heard from an old timer that you could use those little windmill things you stick in your yard. It vibrates the ground and they wont come around. Ive never personally had to deal with them.

    Dursban. Kill the bugs they eat and they will go away.
