Make your own Mole deterrent

There are lots of chemicals out there that you can use to keep moles from your home.  However, you can keep moles away from your yard or garden with a home made mole deterrent.

You will  need

  • 1 tablespoon castor oil
  • 2 tablespoons of liquid detergent
  • 6 tablespoons water

Pour the castor oil and liquid detergent in a blender and whip until the mixture is like shaving cream. Then add the water and whip again. Please remember: you need to keep this mixture out of the reach of children, as well as pets.

Add 2 tablespoons of the oil mixture and stir into a large garden sprinkler can, or other device that you can use to pour the concoction from . Sprinkle immediately over areas with the greatest mole traffic (the largest number of fresh tunnels).

To get the best results, apply the concotion after a large rain.  Alternatively, you can heavily water the area beforehand.   You might even be able to thin out the grub population with this concotion, further reducing the possibility of moles moving in.

Please share your stories with your mole concotion!
