The mole is back. He has been back for a few days. And I have given up on trying to get rid of him. He comes and goes most of the time burrowing holes but seems to leave most of the plants alone. I don't like it but at this point in the season I am not sure what else to do. Next year if he comes back I might invest in the sound sticks. I refuse to put poison in the ground and he always get by our traps so I feel that I have exhausted the options.
