If you have a problem around your home then you want to do everything possible to get rid of these rodents as quickly as possible. You could buy expensive traps that usually lead to death for the mole, but you may find that a little gruesome, especially considering that after the trap has succeeded you have to dig out this animal to throw it away. That may be too much for some to stomach.
This also really does not resolve your problem if you get right down to it. While you may have gotten rid of the one mole, that does not mean that others cannot quickly return. While moles are not known for living in groups together, it does not mean that another mole will not try to take advantage of the tunnels left by the one that you terminated. You want to solution that will really help you to keep the moles away.
You also may not want to spend money on some expensive commercial product. While these may work, many of them pose a risk to your pets and children, and that may not be something that is acceptable to you. What you are looking for are home remedies to get rid of moles in your yard, and here is a couple of things for you to try.
Castor Oil - whether you decide to use a remedy with another product, castor oil is one compound that is sure to give you some results. Not only is the scent irritating to the mole, but the texture and composition are something that will drive it away.
If you want to simply use castor oil as your remedy then all you would do is get a garden spray bottle, fill it with about 2 teaspoons of castor oil mixed with very hot water, attach the bottle to your hose, and spray your yard. This will become an irritant to the mole and will keep it from rising to the surface. With continual spraying it will ensure that the mole does not try to return because it will find your lawn, garden, and other vegetation to be an unsafe location for it.
Adding Dish Soap - while the castor oil can be a perfectly viable option to resolve your mole problem all on its own, many people like to add dish soap to this mixture for an important reason. The castor oil will become attached to your grass, bushes, and trees, keeping a protective layer on the surface of your property. However, the addition of dish soap will allow that mixture to seep into the soil and make even the tunneling system where the mole is living to become uninhabitable.
The best part about this is that it does not create any kind of toxin for your yard. The blend simply seeps into the soil where it creates an irritant for the mole who will then begin the process of trying to get away from your property. With regular spraying of the mixture in your yard, at least once a week, you will find that your problem will be resolved in no time at all.
