How Can You Get Rid of Moles?

Mole mounds

Moles are insectivores that like to eat worms and other small insects. One of their favorite foods is grubs, so if your lawn is infected with the insect, moles will consider your yard an all-you-can-eat restaurant. While you might be relieved to have extra help taking care of a grub problem, moles can also destroy your lawn as they dig underground tunnels.
