Killing moles quickly. For use in underground tunnels, the Poison Moleworms™ resemble real earthworms and are uniquely formulated to be appetizing to moles. When eaten, the poison worms quickly kills moles so you can return your yard to its rightful beauty sooner rather than later. read full product details »
It’s a startling (but true) fact that moles consume between 70% and 100% of their body weight in food each day. Not so surprising: earthworms rank high as a favorite food source - which is why Sweeney’s® Poison Moleworms™ were cleverly designed to look and feel just like the real deal. If you were to close your eyes and hold a Poison Moleworm™ and a real worm in each hand, you’d actually find it hard to feel the difference.
And better yet, these ingenious baits are formulated to be exceptionally palatable to moles – meaning, the moles find them to be downright tasty, which is why these poison worms are the best way to kill moles. When eaten, the poison bait swiftly kills the underground varmints. End result? The moles - and your mole woes – are history.
Stew Clarke, Sweeney's™ Director of Research, provides tips on how to kill moles with Sweeney's® Poison Moleworms™:

Locate Active Tunnels Selecting the proper area to place the Poison Moleworms™ is essential to successfully getting rid of moles in your yard. Begin by locating active tunnels. Make one-inch holes in the roof of a tunnel and mark the openings with the locator flags included in the Poison Moleworm™ package. Revisit the holes after 24-48 hours. Tunnels that have had holes resealed are an indicator of mole activity and a good place to bait.
Proper Bait Placement:
After you’ve located an active tunnel, simply poke a hole that’s slightly larger than the diameter of the Poison Moleworm™ in the roof of the active tunnel and drop the mole killer in. Reseal with dirt and repeat every 5 to 10 feet.

Amazon Review, I'd give it 10 stars if I could!!July 12, 2013
Reviewer: scientific mom
We had confirmed moles invade our yard this spring in 4 different spots. We first tried a poison granules that did nothing. Then I read some factual info that pointed out that moles don't eat grain, they eat worms...so we tried these. All 4 areas were dormant within 24 hours, and have been now for a week. I feel it's safe to say they worked! We're going to go about repairing the lawn this weekend. I have 2 tips. First, I don't recommend breaking the worms in half or thirds as others have suggested. It's possible a single mole needs the poison from an entire worm. Secondly, turn off your sprinklers first. The worms disintegrate in water and the ones of ours that got wet were not eaten and melted.
Amazon Review, Sweeney's works wellJuly 09, 2013
Reviewer: Top Reviewer "Peterdan"
Neighbors advised pellets (Gopher and Mole Patrol)and I found them to be useless. A friend told me he uses Sweeney's worms........and only half a worm at a time ! Sure enough,just get to the center of the mole hill, with a narrow trowel dig down and around in the center and the newly chewed dirt will reveal the tunnel. Drop the half worm in as far as you can. To keep the worm clean and uncovered, plug the hole with a small piece of cardboard or paper (I ended up using even the plastic worm packaging), put some of the dirt back on top of the cardboard and "VOILA !". I killed all the moles in the front and back yards with one package ! I did find the flags helpful as there were a few mole hills that re appeared for a day or two....but now....no more moles ! Friends are better than most neighbors !! Oh, and a note to Mother Teresa, this stuff is made to kill not send them on a vacation.
Amazon Review, Get rid of molesMay 31, 2013
The product works!! Instructions are clear. The customer service is incredible. It is necessary to treat more than one mole run. Follow directions and make certain you treat active runs.

Expensive, but worked better than any other product or trap that I have used. Follow directions very closely and your problem is solved.

This seems to be the only product that really works against moles that are destroying my rock garden. I don't like to use poison but with the loose of some expensive plants it was either the moles or my plants and the mole lost.

Reviewer: C. Jones
I agree with the previous reviewer....after using the poison worms in my yard, it did seem like the next day the moles invited all their friends and relatives to come and sample the goods. At this time, I got crazy, grabbed the Sweeney's Mole Poison Pellets and threw some of that into the tunnels (following the directions to the 't'). We are also using the sonic things and they worked for awhile but soon the moles just got used to the noise and would tunnel right around them. **sigh** We also tried the live trap but never have caught any. Our 3 cats once in awhile will be munching on one (but don't seem to be getting sick from it) and that gives us hope but for now we are going to buy more of the poison worms because it has kept them away after the initial Worm Buffet Invitation went out to all the mole relatives and friends. Did the pellets help? I don't know but it made us feel better and they've been gone for several days. We WILL win this war if it takes all summer. When they get used to one of the Sweeney products, we'll just switch 'em up. I don't think there is much else on the market that we haven't tried and Sweeney's is the best we've found. It's just that those little suckers are so darn persistent. ............But we are also persistent.
