Re: Need to kill a mole.

said by Lurch77:

I want a mole dead.

Why do you want them dead? A healthy lawn needs moles, and moles needs a healthy lawn.

When they make a mound in my lawn, I just spread the dirt and smooth it out, and chalk it up as a free aeration....

A farmer where I live, built his own version of the Banger, but instead of propane/oxygen, he uses Anhydrous Ammonia. Works well to get rid of subterranean pests, and as a side benefit, fertilizes the soil!

No, it doesn't. You're not the same guy that told me to plant clover in my lawn last year, are you?

Here's the answer... My suggestion would be to train your kids or even the neighbors to kill the moles. Amazon has the cool tool you need right here. It's called Whac-A-Mole and it's only 65 bucks!

Comes complete with 4 Mallets, instructions in English and Spanish and sound clues are included free with a bonus sound for killing a mole.. Features 4 moles with attitude!

It's great for kids reflexes, hand/eye coordination etc..

Disclaimer, be careful of animal rights folks, I found this in the reviews section. (below)

"I never heard of this pathetic excuse for a game until my mother-in-law tried to give it to my 4-year-old. I don't know what she was thinking. It's going right back to the store. This toy encourages violence, cruelty, and the idea that animals don't feel pain, and that it's okay and even funny to hit them on the head with a mallet."

Comment on the above review:

"I nearly pee'd my pants reading this review, thanks for the great laugh, I was literally crying!!! Seriously, it's a plastic mole! OMG!!! What's next, like someone else suggested banning Candyland for fear of tooth decay or Hungry Hippo because it may be offensive to overweight people? WOW, WOW, and WOW!!! I'm forsure buying this after reading this! Btw, you should see what moles have done to my garden, you'd want to wack one too!"

LOL

Instead of using a shovel or a tamper, if you have any old netbooks laying around that are no longer working because, say, someone dumped water in them, you can use those to bludgeon the critters with.

I would suggest feeding it disinformation. Usually if the take goes bad, its handler will burn it.

Or you could make it look as though its a double agent- increase its salary disproportionately, and then the FSB should clean up the problem for you.

Take a small/medium potato, cut out a plug and hollow out a space in the center. Fill with a teaspoon or so of rat poison, replace the plug, and bury the potato where the mole is active.

I have two boxers that keep our yard mole free. Had one problem about 5 yrs ago and they took care of it for me. After that I'm the only one out of 4 or 5 houses that do not have mole issues.

I saw an old article that said to bury an old (deep) coffee can in a mole run and cover over with a board, the mole will fall into the can and can't climb out.
I have also put a hose up tailpipe and into a tunnel and let car idle for 10 min- seemed to work, but that run was right next to drive.

Again, thanks for all the replies and conversation. In the end, my dog determined I had voles, not moles, and took care of the problem, or at least some of it, for me.

Oh that's nice. At least you don't have the long tunnel runs.

That's actually the neighbors house.

I had them at my place, which is close to an acre. I made a bubbler out of my small shop vac that uses ammonia and I pump that down the tunnels.

Pretty much puts an end to the problem...

C'mon, Lurch. I would expect that you know this requires a professional effort. Those varmint's are tough critters.
