Moles got you down? .... Gas'm with your car!
Text and photos Marc Weinberg
We've all had trouble with moles in our yards. Personally I've tried fireworks, smoke bombs and forced the nasty stuff through their tunnels with the reverse end of a vacuum.
I've used a formula of Tabasco and liquid detergent. I've tried above ground and internal traps and nothing much work. I've seen a truck sign by someone called 'The Mole Man'.
Well today during a walk in a Shoreline neighborhood I saw a very clever set up that sent carbon monoxide (CO) into their pathway.
I could not resist taking this photo. I do plan to check back with the owner / operator of this 'extermination' process and see how successful it was.
