I looked up Rodebaughs recommendation for catching moles... It looks cool.

I am stuck with these. The black victor trap works well for me (first catch of the year here) and the green one is similar but I don't think the green one is available anymore --this is good --it's half as effective as the black one and harder to set.

Unfortunately I find trapping to be absolutely necessary. I have not found moles and gardening to be compatible whatsoever, way too much root damage. I will say this though: The sonic repellers might work for a very small garden, as long as there are worms elsewhere... I've used them to temporarily corral my moles out of important areas. In some situations, it might be possible to let moles do their thing most of the year, then repel them during the growing season rather than killing them.

Sorry for being gruesome. I'll have to experiment more with the sonic repellers. I've had luck with castor oil too but it really comes down to cost. It's a lot cheaper to not have ANY moles.
