Anybody know if dropping chocolate flavored laxatives in mole holes actually works? I am going to try and get a jump start on my mole problem, and the traps didn't work last summer. I've sprayed my lawn with castor oil and that didn't work either. I'm trying to accomplish this without the use of poison. Well, I would like to try a little lead poisoning, but I can't ever catch 'em. And, yes this is a little early. Obviously, I'm itching for some warm weather.
