45 auto.

No joke. My neighbor started doing it, walking around with his gun in hand and when ever he saw a mole tunnel move he would shoot and he would kill them. He used a 9mm. I told my brother and he started using his 38 to do the same thing.

So far my 45 is 9 for 9 while by brother is 6 for 8 and my neighbor is 6 for 10.

Of course you need some understand neighbors that will think nothing of it to see you walking around and around your yard with your head down carrying a loaded firearm.

I've never seen a mole tunnel move in my life, Wildcat. I assume you are having to stand motionless for a long time? Sounds like fun for sure.

Find the new ones and watch them, they will move. You do not have to stand motionless, just slowly walk and keep looking. You can also set in your lawn chair.

Before he used his handgun my brother used to use his pitchfork and would get them that way. The gun proved faster and better.

Find the active tunnels and take a stick of spearmint gum and push it down in the runway. They cant seem to swallow the gum and it kills them as they wont spit it out. This is supposed to work, never tried it myself but read about it. If you try it , let us know how it does.

Don't know if that would work or not but I always wonder:

Who did this first and why they thought it might work?

If you want to get rid of moles you gotta get rid of their food source. Read up on their diet (generally grubs or larvae stage beetles- especially jap beetles if I'm not mistaken).

Buy a product that kills their food source (i.e. an ortho type grub killer) and the moles will leave your yard. Then you can sit and watch your neighbor shoot into the ground.
