Flatten runs look for activity, work on controlling their food source, poisons do not work (just a way for Orkin to get money), Trapline products are what my guys use and they are very effective.

Your local hardware or garden store will have lots of choices.

The most effective solution was my neighbor's new outdoor cat. Haven't seen a mole hill since he started prowling the neighborhood at night a couple years ago.
Finally got a mole!!! Yaaa baby
