I know it was overkill (pun intended) but sometimes more is better than less
Forget those mechanical traps, these fake worms do the job. I cut each in half to make 20 units. It was satisfying to feel the point of a stick go through the grass and into the hollow chamber. I used all of the fake worms...I know it was overkill (pun intended) but sometimes more is better than less. I marked each location with a small rock and avoided cutting the grass until the experiment was over. One thing I did that I have not seen discussed anywhere is I watered the lawn the same night I set the project in motion. My thought was since the moles are going after worms, and worms always show up in moist soil, this would make a perfect storm of kill conditions. Then, I waited 3 full days before visiting the area. Of course, there is no easy way to tell if you've been successful...but it appeared that no new tunnels were added. So, I flattened all the existing tunnels and waited overnight to see if they were puffed up again. NONE! problem solved.

Surprised that it actually works!
I’ve been trying to revive the lawn on a home we recently purchased. I’ve been doing pretty well - we have a lot of earthworms in our yard - which is a good thing.
Unfortunately - this attracted moles. Walking on the lawn I felt my feet sinking and discoverd a lot of mounds, tunnels and soil being pushed onto the driveway...this was killing my yard.
This went on for weeks, so I was able to identify a pattern that the mole or moles had. Bought this stuff and followed the instructions and invaluable tips in the reviews and Q&A.
Used gloves and cut all the worms in half. I used the entire box and place the bait in areas that I knew they traveled often. I honestly wasn’t sure if this stuff would work, but it was cheap enough to try a few times before paying someone else.
It’s been a few weeks now and no new mounds, tunnels or soil being pushed onto the driveway.
I plan on buying more to have in reserves. I fully expect new moles to eventually come wondering into my yard again.
Highly recommended - just take your time identifying the active mounds and tunnelsand always use gloves when handling the worm bait.

How I Used Tomcat Mole Killer
I recently purchased Tomcat Mole Killer to control Moles in my lawn. I used my own method to determine if the product actually works.
1. I located 4 tunnels which I believed to be active.
2. I poked a hole slightly larger then the worm bait and placed the bait into the hole leaving appx 1/2 inch protruding out of the hole
Use gloves to handle the bait.
3. I packed dirt around the protruding bait, cutting off any light .
4. I placed a glass jar over the bait with a heavy brick on top to prevent any animals or birds from eating it.
5 .When the mole finds the bait he will pull it into the tunnel and it will no longer be visible above ground.
Results: By the third day, 2 of the worms were gone,the other 2 worms were covered with ants. I guess they like them also.
I am giving this product 5 stars based on the results up to now. If you also have Voles (underground root eating mouse) these
will most likely not work. Voles are vegetarians, Moles are meat eaters.
Very important: Cover the exposed bait so other animals and birds cant get to it.

Worked for me...
Worked for me...Took less than 24 hours after planting the worms, before I found a dead mole on my lawn. Followed the procedure on the box. My yard is a total mine field of mole tunnels. So I poked holes in various places, made sure the hole went clear down to the mole tunnel and opened it up a little with a small stick. So if a mole was wandering by it would see sunlight. I marked each hole I made with a small pile of sticks, so I could find the holes I made again. Waited 24 hours, inspected all holes I made, and any holes that were "repaired", I gently re-opened the hole and slid a whole worm down into the tunnel. Came back less than 24 hours later, and found my first dead mole. One of them must of worked its way to the surface. Also, seemed to be a lot less "new" activity in my yard. I still went ahead and created more holes to see if there are any more repairs being made, so I can place more worms. I also wore nitrile the whole time as well.

Mole in grass eliminator.... game over
Cut worms in half like others on reviews, 2.5 acres of moles.... No moles now... Very easy, they are like rubber gummy bear worms... Just put a half worm in a new trail and cover lightly, shazzam, they are gone.... game over... We have chickens roaming the barn yard, they were not affected by the worms and they eat worms. Our barn Cats also were not affected by the worms, we buried the worms in the trails about 2-3 " deep and lightly covered the hole we made so no light gets in. We couldn't be happier with this product.

and it seemed like they might have eaten one of them
I tried these worms, and it seemed like they might have eaten one of them, but the rest, they just tunneled through, and didn't touch the worms, I wish they would have worked, I am having a hell of a time getting rid of this mole,or moles, not sure, and it didn't seem to kill the mole that seemed to have eaten the worm, but all but one worm was left behind, and the worms that were left behind, just fell apart just fell apart.

Worked in one to two days!
I had a huge problem in my new rental with moles in my front and back yard. I tried the sonic sticks in the ground and it actually made it worse. So, once I used the worm bait, I was in desperate need to have the moles goned fast. The mole bait worked so quick, it was amazing! I got rid of the moles in just a day or two! I will definitely keep some in stock in case my neighbors moles decide to switch yards! And a lot cheaper than the non working sonic spikes.

Terrible packaging makes bait ineffective
I am at least the 6th person to report packaging issues causing these worms ineffective or unable to even use. The solution is very simple: Make the plastic molding two-sided so that the worms keep their shape when exposed to high temperatures .... you know, during the summer, when people are mole hunting..... Hello?! Apparently the manufacturer isn't very smart or doesn't care.
I ordered 1 box of these and used it early in the summer. My moles seemed to have died or moved on, then a couple of weeks later, my yard was overwhelmingly littered with about a dozen new mole tunnels. (I will probably look into some repellent for next summer.) So I ordered 2 more boxes of bait, and all 20 worms came melted into a mess or completely gone. I tore off pieces of what remained and set them as bait anyway because I'm desperate, but who knows? Looks like I might be spending hundreds of dollars for someone to dig up my yard and set traps. So thrilled about that.

poke hole in tube with your finger-or preferably-a dull tool the size of a drumstick
Most convenient Mole destroyer on the market. Locate Mole tube, poke hole in tube with your finger-or preferably-a dull tool the size of a drumstick. Insert Tomcat poisonous worm, squeeze hole sealed, and the Mole will be dead in a day or two. More convenient than spear traps which require you to remove the mole and put it in your garbage which is a smelly experience. With Tomcat, the dead Varmint stays in his grave, and no one has to "nose" him before trash pickup.

They were melted...
I can’t verify if this product works. Was in the high 80’s the day this product was delivered and all the worms were melted into a square at the bottom of each package. I’m not sure when the worms melted, but they were solid like fishing bait when I opened the product. Hate to give something a bad review when I was unable to use the product, but I wanted to warn people that if it’s hot there is a potential the worms won’t get to you still shaped like worms.
