Moles can wreck your yard and gardens practically overnight. Even though they are solitary animals, just one mole can tunnel up to 300 feet in one 10-hour period. If you are having a problem with pests in your veggies, and the mole is not wrecking your garden, you just might want to leave him alone and allow him to his job. Nevertheless, if you have a mole whose tunneling is killing your grass his mounds of dirt have become a nuisance, you will probably want to get rid of it. Everywhere you look you can find traps and poisons designed to eliminate the annoying mole, but you might not like the side effects. Poisons can be accidentally ingested by other animals and have terrible results. It can also be harmful to the Earth.
