I love natures bounty and all of the critters for sure...except for Ticks, Slugs, and MOLES, I friggin HATE moles! Third one this year, this one fell to a 31/2" goose load. Last yu7ear was my personal best so far eight dead.
I declared war on Rodents this week, my garden is full. My score so far is one female Rat, one Mouse and Mole six Chuck zero. I tired gassing that sucker, tried flooding. I've sat there for hours with a spear waiting for my chance. I shovel the mounds into my wheelbarrow and find another mound in the same place the next morning. I've been leery of trying the more drastic measures, I've seen the Youtube videos. I've dug up more of my garden setting traps than the Mole did trying to find Earthworms.
