I'm sure many of you are having the same problem. From what I gather they are bad this year! I have found a formula for getting rid of those suckers!
  Shaklee makes 2 products that work well together. this is my formula. tried and tested.
1.5 quarts of basic H
1/2 pint of basic G
10-12 gallons of water
use ortho bottle, or injector
spray every 100 feet, or acre.

Teaching people how to find natural great health, and the freedom to enjoy it!

  I guess I'm at a loss as to what basic H and basic G are...

Basic H is an organic surfactant. plants love it. Basic G is a germicide. both have been used in combination with each other for many years, for instance in cleaning livestock buildings. But this combination works great for getting rid of grubs. the liquid lea is simply liquid vitamins. that combo will fertilize, get rid of dandelions, and rid your yard of grubs. then the moles will move on.

the moles main food is earthworms.
getting rid of grubs will not get rid of moles.
getting rid of grubs and earthworms with poisons will

Yes, 4greenhealth promoting chemical $ solutions are frowned on around here.  Using H & G are not a sustainable solution, and anything that kills grubs, worms and dandelions is moving in the wrong direction, away from permaculture

Any other ideas

My brother gave me two sacks of dried Garlic
I open up under the mole hill and drop about six bulbs in
it keeps them away for a while
then they just dig another ....

They ate my whole 2010 crop of sweet potato.!
