There is a large number of children who can testify to the fact that growing up their parents swore by castor oil. No matter what illness they were suffering from, mom or dad was ready to whip out a bottle of the very pungent tasting oil, forcing a gulp or two down their child's throat in an effort to cure whatever was ailing them.
While it seemed almost sadistic to force this oil down their child's throat, the truth of the matter is that there are great medicinal values that come from using castor oil. This is why it has long been used as a remedy, this isn't simply a myth or fairytale about its success.
However, many are finding that castor oil has benefits that they simply did not know existed. One of these can be used to get rid of a very troublesome pesk that may be tearing up your yard. The mole has long been an issue because of the way that it digs holes and also because of the fact that it frequently will eat the vegetables and fruits that a person has in their garden. They want to get rid of this animal, and here's how to get rid of moles in your yard with castor oil as the solution.
There are a couple of things about this oil that will help to deter the mole from returning. It is not only the scent of the oil that the mole finds particularly abusive, but the texture and composition as well. You will find that this will deter moles as well as other kinds of animals of this nature from coming to your property, and it poses very little risk to your lawn or yard at all. It is a natural product, so it will not damage your crops, garden, plants, or grass by using it.
To resolve your problem all you need to do is this. Get the spray bottle that attaches to your hose that many people get to spray pesticides over weeds. Instead of adding a pesticide, you will add ¼ cup of the castor oil to the container and fill the remainder of it with hot water.
Now, all you need to do is simply spray around your yard. The mole will find this to be extremely uncomfortable for it to stay and will work its way into getting out of your property. As an important note, some choose to leave a small area near the mole hole untreated so that the animal can quickly get out and flee away from your yard. Then you want to treat this area as well. It is an especially good idea to spray a larger amount directly around the mound holes to keep it from returning once you have gotten rid of it.
Maybe castor oil didn't do a whole lot for you when you were a kid, but now you can use it to resolve a big headache that you have as an adult. For more information, you may want to click on one of these guides that I wrote:
