Default Removing moles in yard

Dang things are in my zoysia lawn. The grass is dormant but the moles are feeding, leaving raised tunnels. The yard is basically on a dune and is pure sand so what's the best way ?

I've got the same problem this year, and I'm on sandy soil as well.

I PM'd a fellow this past summer but he didn't bother getting back to me to tell me what worked for him so I'm still in search for an answer myself.

Get rid of their food and they will leave. Kill the grubs.

I've had good luck with castor oil...it just repels them, though, and needs to be reapplied every month or 2.

6oz castor oil per gallon water with a little Dawn to help it spray and just spray over yard.

Once you get them out of your yard, you only need to spray the perimeter.

The person that wrote the instructions for Mole Max needs to go back to grammar class

Trust me on this one. Talprid Mole Bait, but PLEASE read and follow the directions . It is basically a rodent bait.
