The best way to get rid of moles is to trap them. If you can identify their food source - commonly is grubs - and eliminate it, they usually won't come back.

Grub control works best in the summer.

if you decide to trap, put worm oil on your trap mechanism.. you can get it at the fishing supply store.. they go nuts and trip the trap every time.. another great way is to use "HOT" lime.. open the hole and pour hot lime powder down in it.. cover and let it do its job.. make sure its the hot lime they use in outhouses and such.. you want that burning stuff.. not the garden lime..

here in NC grubs also seem to be the primary attraction. i used a castor based product called 'mole med' to run them off, the followed with four seasonal applications of milky spore to kill the grubs. milky spore is a bacteria that once established in the soil will thrive for up to 20 years. seems to be working well
