Vermicomposting, worm bin, composting with worms community and forums

I know this forum is about earthworms but since moles eat our garden variety of earthworm I thought it is a valid question for this forum.I have a mole that is distroying my garden and I would like to know if anybody has any clever, humane and organical method of getting rid of it.Or should I just let it be?

Moth balls, drop one in an active run and close the hole again. The moles don't like the smell will leave the area. If you put the moth ball in a mesh bag with a string out of the ground you can pull the moth ball back out of the hole after the mole is gone. For use on the next mole that finds the empty run.

I used it in the garden on gophers over a week ago. The moth balls look the same and the garden is looking a bit better. The gophers didn't go far they moved into the brush next to the house and are now eating my flower beds.

Thanx...hope they leave your flower beds alone.

We have tons of moles in our yard...but I really don't know a humane way to get rid of them. Except moles travel close to the surface so you could put up some sort of barrier method around your garden. That would keep them out (or so I am told) Good Luck!
