Hi all.

We've got a large area of lawn in front of our house in the cold wet Basque country.

Our soil must be quite organic as we are regularly visited by moles.  At first my feelings were very ecological and I figured that once they had made their tunnels they would just be happy to patrol them,  but they seem to be very active workers and our responses have become increasingly drastic.

We've got some electronic mole  frighteners and they seem to work a bit. They laugh at mole traps. My wife has experimented with putting various noxious substances down the burrows but without a lot of effect.

Anybody got any suggestions?
