Mole hills

As I keep trying to convince my Father-in-law there is no point trying to remove moles. Once the moles have settled they stop digging and all you need to do is flatten the hills and live with them; they are highly territorial and will keep new moles out. However, if you remove the moles then new ones will move in and dig new tunnels creating more mole hills.
