We have a mole in our yard making these little dirt hills all over. It even made one in the middle of the kids soccer goal! :Angry: Has anyone else had this problem? Does anybody have any idea how to get these things? Do they just go away on their own or will it get worse and take over the whole yard? It has already made over 10 mole hills. My husband wants to put a few firecrackers in the holes and blast him out! I want to try something more conventional. Any ideas?

LOL!!!!! im so sorry demi but i just laughed out loud at the little hills all over. the male counterpart said you can pour lighter fluid down the holes (and around the holes on top) and then drop a match in, he said do it to all the holes and burn that ***** out :lol:

aww! don't kill it! :(
you could try trapping it and releasing it elsewhere. moles are good! they control bugs.

Hey Empress, it is not funny! That thing gets on my nerves. Every morning I wake up and there's a new hill. I like that idea, smoke 'em out, burn 'em out.

Sorry Alastri, but I am not an animal person. That mole can go control the bugs somewhere else. I will not be trapping and releasing anything. Well, for that matter I won't be doing anything. I'll give the hubby your suggestions and let you know what he decides.

Thanks for the suggestions.

send the moles to alastri :lol: make a little mole home for them and put a wheel in the cage since she likes them :P

yeah demi, he said that's how you get rid of anything that makes hills. he said you can drop some poison in all of the mountains too beforehand if you want

let me know what hubby says!
