I've sent for some Nematodes today, and we have some granules containing Caster Oil to sprinkle over the area, when we can walk on it - which is supposed to be another week yet. I don't think we will wait that long.
Our neighbour said that if we get traps he will set them for us, but at the moment we're not happy about killing wildlife, only to taint/remove its food supply.
The Craneflies are another matter - we go around the bungalow every morning and a couple of times during the day and swat them to Cranfly heaven. Lost count of how many we have sent there.
Woodgreen wonderboy - how did you deal with your craneflies & leatherjackets?
Berghill - we have been told that each mole has its own territory, and that if we kill this one leaving the area mole-free, another mole may take the area over. It is soul-destroying though when you've spent a lot of money in a garden for this damage to happen.
