Milky Spore Powder. Maybe PM Conpewter to see what he thinks about it, He started the thread cited before. May be too soon for him to have formed an opinion tho'.

Oh hey, I just remembered. It's not kind, nor is it probably economically feasible...but since this is general chit-chat. The University here about a decade or so ago did an experiment. They had this roller with thousands of long, need-like tines that pierced the earth. The objective of the study was to kill off the earthworms/etc and see the effect on the turf. My friend who at one point in time was in the earthworm raising business (no foolin) told me about this. You could make one for the grubs (and consequently the moles/voles as well )

To be environmentally friendly, just live with it. They deserve to be here as much as you do. (just reached my liberal quota for the month.)

Pretty sure we can assume she "put out" at least once. And beer is always a good lure for that, regardless of context.
