One of the biggest ‘pest’ problems I have year after year are ground moles. Last year, they just had a field day in my lawn and through my gardens in their search for grubs and other taste treats. Their tunnel follies have left some of the lawn looking like a war zone. Is there any means of truly getting rid of these creatures? I have ‘detoxed’ my lawn over the last 3 years from chemical lawn crack (in other words, I’ve gone organic!) and I’ve been using organic means (milkey spore) to rid the lawn of grubs. (therefore eliminating some of their desired food supply) Yet.. they keep coming back in search of more. At one point last year I even stood outside with a pitch fork, waiting to see movement and I would stab into the earth frantically at the first sight of the earth starting to bulge a bit. (I’m sure my neighbors thought I was crazy.. but I was pushed to the edge!) Any suggestions fellow gardeners?
