Default Time to put down diazinon?

Wes, why do you tie the trap to a string? To make it easier to remove the
mole from the trap? I may have to try your method, as moles have taken over
my front yard -- at least the dogs can't get to that part of the yard to
dig up the moles!

OK so the grubs are attracting the moles which are causing the damage.
Have you tried trapping the moles? A bucket, a mousetrap, a 1x1x12, a
brick and a peanut and peanut butter. My inlaws in banner elk caught
hundreds one summer after building their home. Bait the trap with a
peanut and smear on a bit of peanut butter. Put the trap on the ground.
I tie mine to a string and a large nut (old lug nuts work). Put the
bucket upside down over the trap with the stick under one side. PUt the
brick on the bucket to keep it from blowing over. Place near tunnels
espcially areas where you may see an exit hole. My inlaws used large
flower pots too. After the milky spore takes effect you will have
fewer grubs but the moles may still make incursions and need trapping.

Well I used small chain cause a couple traps "walked" away when only a
leg was trapped. String might get chewed thru.
