Mole Scram Professional is a granular, all natural, organic mole repellent that is formulated to rapidly drive moles away from your garden and lawn. It is also fully biodegradable. Mole Scram Pro works in 2 ways, by taste that the moles dislike and a strong offensive odor that is very mild to humans. This mole repellent will not harm or kill moles, it will simply drive them away to prevent them from further damaging your lawn or garden. Can be applied any time of year. It is also an excellent preventative measure when used in the Spring and Fall.
Mole Scram Professional should be applied at the beginning of Spring and then Fall, the two highest mole activity seasons. Moles may not exit your property when repelling them, regardless of the repellent used. They may burrow underground up to 5 feet during drier periods when earthworm activity is deeper in the soil. As a result, you may have to reapply in the summer if heavy rainfalls occur and bring earthworms to the surface. Mole Scram Pro can be used as a preventative to deter moles from entering an area not yet infested or previously cleared out. Simply spread a 30 foot wide barrier around the property to be protected and reapply every 30 to 45 days. Mole Scram Professional is fast acting and immediately effective. However, mole activity will appear to increase for the first 1 or 2 days after initial application as moles become immediately uncomfortable and try to dig their way away from the treated area.
We had a terrible mole problem. Our yard had brown streaks, from their tunnels, all over the place. We tried traps and the smoke bombs and it did not seem to make a dent. We put on the mole scram and it was awesome. Right away we could tell they were not making new tunnels. They have left and about 6 weeks later our yard is looking good! We have already bought more to put on again next year.
Believe me when I say I have tried nearly every product available to rid my lawn of moles! From smoke bombs, peanuts, chewing gum, traps....tried them all. Mole Scram works!!!! Have used it for 2 seasons and it is well worth the price if you are truly wanting to save your lawn . I spread the granules on the lawn twice a year as directed . Extremely happy with the product.
I can't speak to the effectiveness of this product. I put it down as instructed but then the weather turned cold and I can't tell if the moles have left or only gone deeper. I am cautiously optimistic it moved them out.l
The product comes nowhere close to the coverage advertised though. I used the spreader settings in the instructions and a bucket only covers maybe 6-8000 sq feet tops.
I have used 2 1/2 pails of this product. I am due to put down one more application this spring. I find that it works fair in my grassy areas and not at all when spread into my pine straw natural areas where the moles live.
What setting should I set the dial at when using Mole Scram Professional in my Scott's rotary spreader?
The Mole Scram product label lists the appropriate settings for a few different Scotts spreaders. If you do not see your specific model listed, we would recommend for you to watch the video on our spreaders page to learn how to calibrate your spreader correctly.
