Ever since I repaired the lawn near the road I have had moles digging in the nice soft tilled soil making a mess of it. I tried poison and traps with no success. The only thing that works is poking the garden hose at full bore in one of the tunnels just where you see a fresh mound and flood them out. Keep a close watch on the ground shovel in hand. In a minute or two they will poke their nose up through the soil and then its time to play Whak-a-Mole.
