How to Humanely Get Rid of Moles and Keep Them Away

Moles are small burrowing mammals that have an insect-based diet. While they don’t really like to munch on your garden plants, because of their subterranean lifestyle, their underground tunnels can still wreak havoc on your garden or lawn and also pave the way for other rodents to harm your plants as well as other parts of your home. If you are dealing with a mole infestation problem, here’s how you can effectively and humanely get rid of them according to a residential pest control services provider.

Pest Control

1. Get Rid of Their Food Source

As mentioned above, the diet of moles consists of insects like worms, snails, and slugs. If you eliminate them, the moles will likely relocate to search for a better food source. You can keep the insect population in your yard or garden under control by using beneficial nematodes or milky spore. If you want quick results, you can resort to insecticides instead.

2. Apply a Repellant

According to pest control companies, another effective way to get rid of moles is to apply a repellant. Simply mix three parts castor oil with one part dish soap and put three tablespoons of this mixture into a gallon of water then apply it to affected areas in your lawn or garden. This solution will make your lawn an unpleasant place to live by causing minor digestive problems for moles and other rodents that come into contact with it without killing them. 

3. Use Mole-Repelling Plants

If you enjoy gardening, then this is the perfect solution for you. Moles dislike plants with strong smells, such as daffodils and marigolds, or just about anything within the allium family. To send moles packing, plant these species around the edges of your garden to form a natural barrier.
