I have zeon zoysia and have major problem with moles. I’ve tried the poison peanuts and the repellant you sprinkle on the lawn without any success. Anybody have a suggestion?

The only way I’ve ever found to get rid of moles is to kill them with a mole trap – I bought 4 of them and would place them inline on the mole trail and that increased my chances of getting them.

I would put a little dent down on the trail with my toe – then I would put the trap down inline with that trail. Then I would set the trap making sure that the trigger was just over the pushed down soil/grass.

I would have a few false triggers so I would dig up a plug around the trap after each trip of the trigger just to see if I got one.

When I had active trails I would usually get the mole within a week. And when another one started leaving trails – repeat the process.
