No idea, but there is a comedian in the UK called Jasper Carrot(t) who tells a 
funny story about how to get rid of moles.  I won't go in to detail, but it 
involves strapping a flashlight to your head, sitting in your grounds on a 
revolving chair whilst cradling a shotgun, and waiting for the little critters 
to start moving  to start moving around in the evening.   Don't do what Jasper 
did though, and remember that the recoil from your first shot might lead to 
you attracting the attention of the local police..................

On a more serious note, in the UK people do sell an ultrasonic probe that you 
place in the soil and it drives them away.  I guess that you could try 
playing them Guns 'n Roses as an alternative, or email me directly and I can 
send you the ad. Personally, I don't think it will work!
