I had a mole for 6 months in my once beautiful lawn and it ruined a large part of it. I tried various traps - the mole(s) went round them. I tried urine - the moles seemed to like it. I tried smoke things - the moles moved 6 inches away. I tried a water pressure thing down the holes - they LOVED that! This particular mole started digging a new patch of my lawn every morning at 7am. In the end I was so mad, I went out at 7am in my nightclothes with a barbecue skewer and stabbed like crazy all over the lawn (what neighbours?). It never came back. I have read that moles die if they sustain any small injury which leads to bleeding because their blood cannot clot but I don't know if this is true. Maybe I nicked it. Maybe it just thought it had better scarper from the crazy woman.
