in dry sugar sand, it is getting real dry. A lot of the places I trap the sand is like sugar and the sand wants to keep filling the mole
runs. No sod to plug the hole. Any idea's? It will not be long and the moles will stop uses this type of run and go down deeper.

Water the lawn to keep them at the surface. No mols work well in sand.

Sand can be tough to trap in.

About 50% of the lawn I am doing right now a lawn irrigation. Most of the other are really sandy with very little grass.

How do you structure your program? Do you set a time period for trapping? What happens if you run over that period without catching the mole? Have your customers refused to run a hose and sprinkler out to the area to help get rid of the mole that is annoying them enough to pay somebody to trap it?
