I have moles creating super highways under my lawn.  I put down toxic grub control last year.
I don't like to put up mole traps or use a toxic grub control. I have a small child.
what are your thoughts on milky spores?  Could the moles be out there for another reason besides grubs. when I have pulled up a patch of grass in the past, I have not even seen grubs or I have seen one or two.

Anyone's thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I've recommended milky spores in the past and have never heard back. 

I've never had to deal with grubs. 

I have had cats and dogs that eat moles and/or voles.

 
Who knew that furniture could be so violent? Put this tiny ad out there to see what happens:
