    Finally!

    Been after this guy since last fall. He's had a ball tearing up my yard for months.

    Not the best time for it either, as we're going to be selling our house in the spring.

    Reminds me of the three moles tunneling under the garden...


    First mole says, "I smell carrots. We must be in a carrot patch."

    Second mole says, "I smell corn. We must be in the corn patch."

    Third mole says, "All I can smell is molasses."

    I'm pretty optimistic this was an available bachelor. We're several hundred yards from the woods, where they come in from. And he's only the second one we've had in our yard in 14 years. He was staying within a 25 yard radius of the tree which holds our bird feeders--no doubt attracted by the worms in the ground insulated by the sunflower shells.

    There are many, many moles in our area, but very few get into my yard. Our previous house always had several in the yard all the time. I know what to look for.

    Now, chipmunks... We've got those attracted by the feeder. Live trapped 8 of those in October of last year. Live trap is much more efficient than any kill trap I've found. I take them to the other side of the river. None has made it back yet.

    Wow! That's a mole?! That's a darn big mole!
    We've got more voles than moles. Both are unwanted here.
