Once upon a time there was a mole. We assume he's a MR. mole, but we didn't check. Mr. Mole for about a month has been reeking havoc throughout our yard and flowerbeds! We tried many a ways to get rid of Mr. Mole. At first we just kept trying to stomp down his tunnels, but he'd just come back. He was quite a tenatious fella. Then we went to the ever-so-expensive poisonous nightcrawler, and he'd just push it to the side! Next we tried the 'guarenteed mole repellant spray'. Well, you can see that didn't work. Next, Dave went online and read that a mouse trap with peanut butter on it in his tunnel would do it. All we got were a mouse trap full of ants. Mr. Mole, we assume, was pretty smart, because he would either throw dirt on the mouse trap to set it off, go around it, or underneath... so that didn't work. Next, Dave thought he'd get wise and pour gasoline down the hole, light the match, but not realize that the dry mulch near the hole would catch on fire! Thank goodness the hose was attached and nearby - otherwise, bye bye trailer! We were sure that the scent of the gas would keep him from coming back, but that didn't work either. Next Dave tried drowning out their tunnel - that didn't work either.
Then we decided, Monday night to go online and find something that would stop it dead in his tracks. We found the ever-so-impressive REVENGE SPEAR MOLE ELIMINATOR! Boy, you can't get more impressive than that. Spring loaded and set to go, it only took 24 hours to say goodbye to Mr. Mole. Dave was really excited when he got home from work today to find the trap had released and there was dead Mr. Mole already in rigor.
Ian and Luke were very impressed as well, and Mommy was a little crazed with the camera! (I've never seen a mole in real life before! - plus, it was tearing up my yard and flower beds!) Needless to say, we're thinking of renting our Revenge Spear out to our surrounding neighbors - there sure are a lot of mole runners in other yards, and hey, maybe we'll get some money out of it?!?!?! *wink*
bye bye, Mr. Mole!
