Wiled cats.  Feed them enough to keep them around.

Spray for tansey. That will kill the worms and moles move on to unsprayed territory. AFAIK, moles' primary diet is worms, grubs, and bugs. Voles on the other hand, you need cats.

I can kill them pretty good with a cinch trap but they are now made local and they break within a year. They are crazy expensive to last so short a time so I stopped buying them. Now  I?m forced to try a different trap type.
Trick to killing the buggers is to dig down from the hole until you hit the horizontal tunnel and set the traps there.
