The same people who claim Kavanaugh is Guilty and must prove his innocence are the same
people who thought the Duke lacrosse team was guilty and had to prove 'their' innocence.
Democrats never change.

We've been battling moles since we moved in.  He might be able to kill off what's in your lawn now, but if there is a mole prevalence in the area, more will come.  Believe, more will come...

Usually moles  hang around a yard with grubs. Take care of the grubs and they might go elsewhere.

On 4 acres, that's tough to do.  I have tried to convince the hubby that the lawn experts recommend killing off all the worms and grubs, but he says that the moles don't know the bugs are gone, so they'll just keep digging...

According to the experts, you have to kill off all the food sources, then make the lawn stink so they don't want to hang around.  He doesn't want to do that...so we battle moles.  I'm ready to call the lawn service and have them spray something nasty though, LOL.

Could have guessed rat tunnels... He's gonna clear that hill and maintain it till my return... Then I will have a hill filled with southern plants that moles, rats, possums and raccoons hate... Marigolds... A hillside of marigolds... Orange ones not yellow...

The renters here are something else.. .They let the weed grass grow to the waist side a great feed for varmints...  They love weed roots...and the neighbors love trash... What a combination... Huh?

I tell ya... I'm flipping this one...moving on to greener pastures... Should be back to TN in October... While I am finishing TN I will have Hellsville on the market...

Oh the have these bugs here that act like roaches but are not... I may have to have that problem solved...

The South has more issues then I thought...

Probably palmetto bugs, like my kids see in South Carolina.

I had them for a while at my last house. First I put down grub killer a couple times and then installed metal windmills around the yard and they left never to return again.

The lawn here was torn up from moles...can you see the windmills? They solved the problem..not cheap but were effective for me.

We tried the windmills, the sonic ground tubes, everything.  I am convinced killing off the food source is the answer, but hubby is as stubborn as me...I just have to wait till he's gone on a long weekend and I'll go buy the stuff myself and lay it down, LOL...

We were having a lot of success with the Mole Scram Pro, but it's so expensive, and we need so much, it just wasn't cost effective.  But I'm told services like Chemlawn and TruGreen have spray services that can lay down the stinky stuff pretty quickly.  driving them away is always optimal to killing them, but they are stubborn boogers too.

Told me to use windmills but if it's metal it will be in the metal shop... Ignorant... They do tear up the place with holes.. .I may have 40 holes in the yard...
