That may be worth while whiteowl. Right now they are still in a few small areas so it may not be too bad to do. Certainly easier then poison of traps. Did you do it in spring or fall?

If it is broken, fix it. If it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.

We have knifed in NH3 since 1967 or 68 on the same fields.

Okay. Some of the oldtimers claimed that you could go out with a set of harrows at night too and kill them by harrowing them as the moles come out at night. I would have to assume that is another old wive's tale as well!

Well on prairie dogs it worked well(walk around pulling the tank with the pickup, 15ish seconds or so at full blast per hole) just watch the wind. I have also heard that straight nitrogen will sink at first and is a slightly less dangerous way of doing it(according to my neighbor it worked, according to "save the prairie dogs" groups it doesn't.)

Otherwise rodex is what worked well for us. Looks like wheat with green treatment on it. Put it out right before they stay down there (hibernation or whatever) when they're fattening up/gathering food.

I'm assuming it's not too much different. Rodex was/is made for gophers and moles. Also seen an ad for a guy that comes out with a propane truck and fills a hole at a time up and lights it off. Just said it may disturb the ground a little.

timing didn't matter, because it chokes out the air throughout the entire run, so anything in the run chokes. You can trac the shallow runs by the gas coming thru thu the ground.Have even used this method on skunks and fox if they are problems ( I leave them alone unless they are nested in my yard, just because they are good mousers)

A little up date. Tried the giant killer since it was the cheapest option. Used one stick in the area shown. Its maybe 400 x400' and is the worst spot. I did put it out in the early evening. Not sure if that good or not as I found a few holes open. I am guessing the moles were out, but the dogs were with me and it made it easy to find holes. Its been about 3 days since I lit it and only a handful of mounds reappeared so I am quite happy with the results. I did figure I would need more then one, but I wanted to do a quick test. Now I know why my old dog was always out in the field and I never had a mole problem. Hopefully these 2 idiots figure out moles too lol.




Sorry for sideways pics
