    Getting Rid of MolesThe only sure way to eliminate a mole is to use a mole-specific trap that will kill the animal. Repellants, poisons, fumigants, and home remedies are less effective.


    Above- and below ground traps are available. Follow the package directions for correct placement, and move the tunnel traps daily if the mole is not caught. Try inverting a bucket over the trap to conceal the trap and prevent tampering.


    Spring and fall, when the ground is moist but not frozen, are the best times of year for control because moles are most active then.


    In all but the worst cases, removing just one or two moles usually solves the problem because moles don't live in communities.
