    I was covering up some wood before it rained, and out came HUGE Ground mole waddling from under the wood. LOL

    The cats bring them in, but small ones. I tell you, this one was about 5 inches long, and a FATTY. It was so cute. He was looking for someplace to hide.

    I haven't seen any alive, but I'd say about large rat sized.

    Catmint, I have seen some that were as big as a rat. We have alot of problems with digging up our yard. How do you get rid of them? I have heard that if you place a small radio into one of their holes & turn the volume up really loud, that they will leave. Does that really work?

    try moth balls...drop them down the holes..oh, and chewing gum..they love it but can't digest it and it kills them...sounds like fatty wood eat a whole pack!!!

    No, sissy, It is a ground mole. When it popped out from the tarp, I screamed, thought it was a rat.

    I know they do damage, but he was too cute to kill. Just couldn't do it. LOL

    It is the yard by the creek, only place I really have problems. But they will probably come on up into the big yard.

    The agriculture man around here on TV gave a way to control them, but can't remember what he said. I know someone will call in to find out before long though.

    The radio thing does not work believe me and I even had a few radios going at the same time.
