mole removal

As you know by now, this is where I store information that I need to find later. To that end, how to get rid of moles:

Home remedies for mole control are numerous. Pouring any of the following readily available home products into the mole tunnels is said to encourage moles to seek other habitats. Pickle juice, broken glass, red pepper, bleach, mothballs, rose branches, or human hairballs is said to be successful for controlling mole populations. Vibrators and ultrasonic devices are sold in stores for the purpose of getting rid of moles.

Castor oil is a popular ingredient in repellents. For a homemade repellent, mix 6 oz of castor oil and 2 tbsp of dish soap in one gallon of water to make a concentrate. Mix one ounce concentrate to one gallon of water. Apply to the lawn; reapply after rain or watering.

Cats are a natural predator of moles. Pour used cat litter into the run or mole hill to get rid of moles. This must be repeated until the moles have disappeared.



  1. So for a moment, I thought you were advising me to allow a cat to attack my neck where a mole resides and I just could not reconcile this with any logic, until I remembered the other use for the term mole. Then I felt much better about things.

  2. lol. The pharmacist had a similar thought when I inquired about castor oil.... Apparently, you can use it on those other kind of moles too, tho she wouldn't recommend it.

  3. okay, I'm not the only one. I was really searching for a tunnel as usually my moles are flat or rounded. Vibrators, now that was interesting. Maybe that's why there are no moles... I digress. Ah-ha! Cats. Now I get it.

    So, you have moles in your yard. I've used moth balls, but I also used to keep cats.

  4. And the moth balls work? Great! I have tons due to the snake issue.
