I've also had good results with sticking a water hose down into the tunnels to drown them.

Your evening "leak" actually does work! After everything else failed, this did the job. You just have to reapply after every rain. A lot of beer helps too.
Got the frig stocked for next weekend. I'll have to get some "cheap" beer for this purpose, I'm not going to waste the good stuff on them.

Blood meal, sold at garden stores keeps varmints away. It is cheap and good as a fertilizer.

You should be glad they are making holes in the ground and not eating the wires in your car,which they love to do.

Had the same issue, more then one type of critter though. I got me a BB rifle and started having some fun shooting them in the arse and watching how high they jumped strait up in the air. Had a hard time reloading and laughing so hard at the same time! Works well, after a couple of days of fun and laughs, they have stayed away! Now if one even comes to the front yard, either my dog or i will rattle the door and off they run! HA HA HA!

You have to kill the Grub worms in you yard and then the moles will leave on their own.

Down south here's how we handle it.

5 TBL spoons flour
enough oil to cover the bottom of the skillet
Cut the squirrel into pieces and roll in flour
Put in skillet until browned. Add some water and put lid on skillet
continue to simmer for about an hour.
Serve over cathead bisquits.

Of course you could have armadillos.

County gave me live traps, caught all the neighbors cats but no dillos...

But I still hate the tree rats after what they did to my MH taillight wiring.

Armadillos are almost impossible to trap. They are after grubs and earthworms. If you treat your lawn for grubs they'll move on to greener pastures.

I have a similar squirrel problem. They bury their hickory nuts in the yard, and my male Dachshund digs them up and eats them. My female Dachshund digs up the moles and voles. Around here, it is illegal to shoot (even with a BB gun) or trap squirrels. I'm reluctant to put chemicals in the yard because of my dogs.

There is a non-toxic grub control product called Milky Spore. It is a grub disease that will kill white grubs, but not earthworms or birds that eat infected grubs. It is safe for pets also.

The poisons that you put down to kill grubs only work if you water them in immediately with an inch of water. That would carry the poison down to the root level where your dogs wouldn't be in contact with it, but it also kills earthworms.
