Mole Problem? Keep moles out of your garden or yard
Moles are not really bad little animals, they just like to share our gardens and yards making a home for themselves. If you are having problems with moles eating your bulbs and digging in the yard, then have a look at the following
Using glass milk bottle, dig holes in the soil and insert the milk bottle so that just the neck sticks out. Do this anywhere that you want the moles to keep away from, and where you know that they are living right now. The noise created by the wind blowing over the bottle necks will drive the Moles mad. They will pack up and move to another home away from the milk bottles.
Here is another thing that Moles dislike: Eucalyptus leaves. You can buy eucalyptus leaves from herbal stores, home centers and some flower shops. Push the leaves down the holes that the little moles have left behind.
If you are an experienced gardener, you may already know that Moles will damage and eats the roots of your cultivated plants in the garden. Next time you are digging a trench to plant your young seedlings be sure to line it with fine gauge wire netting so that the mole will not be able to 'get to' your plants.
Moles also hate vibration. So another great idea is to buy a few children's pinwheels. The type that move around in the wind. Place them around your garden where moles are a problem and you find that they will be soon heading elsewhere.
Do you know someone that clips their dog hair. If so ask them for some of the dog hair. Stuff the dog hair down the mole holes. The moles will hate it.
