Mole Prevention Options
Get Rid of What Moles Eat
Since moles eat both beneficial insects (like earthworms) and destructive insects (like white grubs) it can be tough to make your soil free of insects for moles to eat.However, controlling white grubs could potentially make a difference in preventing potential moles and could potentially make moles move on to a new area and leave your yard. See our White Grub Control Guide to learn how to get rid of white grubs.
Animal repellents contain ingredients that are unpleasant to the target animals. They use touch, taste, or smell to repel animals from a treated area. Mole repellents contain ingredients like castor oil and garlic oil that smell and taste bad to moles, which will cause them to be less interested in living and foraging in your yard.These products work best when you begin use of these products before you even have a mole problem.
This way, the moles perceive your yard as a less-than-ideal place for them to live, which is easier than trying to convince them to leave.It is very important to follow the directions carefully and thoroughly, because repellents require reapplication at regular intervals to keep them working effectively.
