How To Keep Moles Out Of Your Garden

Are moles causing mayhem in your garden? Have you twisted your ankle and said a few bad words caused by a molehill? Moles are great for the environment and help to reduce insects in your garden. However, they are more commonly known as the annoying little critters who destroy lawns and gardens.

What Damage Can Moles Do?

Moles can be a big problem for a garden with a network of tunnels. They can cause havoc on lawns, causing unsightly ridges and damaging the turf’s root system. Moles tunnelling can also uproot plants and flowers, causing plant damage and death.

Home Remedies for Moles Repellent

Cat Litter

It sounds like a weird suggestion and one you won’t find in a university book; however, don’t question whether it works.

Using cat litter sprinkled on a runway will repel the moles. This sounds easy. However, it may be more complex.

Since moles can dig an elaborate network tunnel system, determining the right runway and tunnel to treat could be daunting and frustrating. In addition, cat litter does depend on the smell of faeces to repel the moles, so stay away from scented cat litter.

Mole Repellent

Take a trip to your local DIY/garden store,  or visit Amazon.com and you should come across a biodegradable mole repellent. This natural repellent will work wonders in preventing the moles from disturbing your garden. Buying a biodegradable repellent will mean the issue should be handled humanely without harming the animals.

Mole Repellent Bulbs

Using mole bulbs in your garden is a very simple method to repel the moles; as an all-natural repellent, you need to plant these bulbs deep in your lawn.

With these natural mole-repellent bulbs, your garden can be free for up to two years, leaving your lawn mole-free.

If you are facing an invasion of the little critters, we suggest calling the professionals. Current UK animal welfare regulations increasingly emphasise that a target species should be controlled to protect it from unnecessary suffering, even under the terms of pest control.
