Our association of 18 units have had an exceedingly amount of damage with Moles this year. We have spent nearly $200 on poison Mole worms with mixed results. Is it because we may have excess grubs in our lawns? What results could we expect if we sprayed for grub worms? We would have to consider the cost of hiring our landscaper to do a special spraying and how it would effect our poison worms cost. Any recommendations on spray brand and an estimate opinion of success would be appreciated.

Trying to control grubs does not reduce the number of moles because moles also eat earthworms. Traps are the best way to control moles.
