How to get rid of moles?

Asked November 22, 2013, 11:02 AM EST

Our yard appears to be having a mole invasion. Is there anything that can be done to eliminate moles and what are they feasting on in the soil?

Moles are insectivores and feed on grubs, earthworms and other insects. Signs of moles include raised tunnels in the lawn. The best way to control moles is to trap them. If you have pathways where grass is clipped, you most likely have voles instead of moles.
