I live on a one acre lot on the north side of town by the river. My lawn is riddled with moles and pocket gophers. Personally, I have found the best course of action is to simply repair the damage they cause. Going after these underground animals requires a lot of time and energy that ends up wasted. Many of the “home remedies” simply do not work. Trapping has proven to be the best method – however, many people do not have a lot of luck with this either.
