Try using various household insect killers. Spray on the stuff they are most likely to eat like flowers, and vegetables and fruits. Try different products if you are not noticing the results.

Chemical control involves spraying pyrethroids down into the burrow entrance. Try Carbaryl (Sevin) dust. They will always return the following year, no matter what you do. Best to leave alone.

First you need to consider if you really want them gone. They are harmless and actually beneficial to the environment. If the answer is still yes, you have a couple of options one of the easiest is just to swat them. For a full yard treatment you should contact a professional exterminator to use high grade insecticide.
