Mole Patrol!!!

Hubby and I are new to the area and are becoming quite familiar with the local critters.  We had one move into our yard and decide to make a mess of it.
We didn't know what was doing it for so long.  It all started with one little mound in the back yard and then it moved to the front yard and then all heck broke loose.  We eventually realized it was a mole and decided we needed to do something.  We put down some grub stuff  last week in an effort to stop it from doing more damage, but then decided to take matters into our own hands.

See that hose in the picture above?  Yeah....we found the tunnels it was making and, well, you can imagine what happened.  Most of the holes were just filling and filling with water, this one just kept going....and then the dirt moved...
Its almost cute...and I feel kinda bad for it...but...You don't mess with my yard.  Look at how big the claws/shovel hands are!  Crazy!!  But I think we got it taken care of, but we don't know for sure that there was only one.  Looks like they live by themselves most of the time, so there could .. not be any more, but we're not sure.  Crazy little critters!  You don't mess with an E(last name)'s yard!!  :)



  1. Awwwwwww....that almost makes me kind of sad. Back in Virginia, our cat would leave little mole pieces for us on our steps...that was almost sad, too.

    1. I agree, it is kind of pretty sad...but there's that little part of me that isn't very sad about it. :) That's a good cat that you had there...
