With the arrival of spring comes the arrival of that destroyer of lawns - the mole. Moles are not all that bad. They do eat different insects and aerate your yard which is really a big help. However, tripping over huge mounds of dirt and having a lawn that looks like it is riddled with craters is not always aesthetically pleasing. If you have kids you can always enlist them to stomp down the tunnels for you before you mow the yard. Otherwise you end up sending chunks of turf and good-sized rocks flying when your mower makes contact with a large tunnel.
Two common ways to get rid of moles is through the use of poisons or mole traps. For a listing of the many ways you can try to get rid of moles check out this article in the Lansing State Journal or Jim Harding's critter website.
