Moles are pesky little creatures that can wreak havoc on your well-manicured and expensive lawn. Moles inhabit all of the United States and there are as many as seven varieties of the small, burrowing animal. If you see randomly appearing mounds of dirt suddenly appear in your yard, you probably have a mole problem.
Moles can become a problem if there are several of them or if they dig where they disrupt the roots of your grass and plants. Unfortunately, if moles are a problem in your yard, the most reliable way to rid yourself of the problem is by trapping (and usually killing) the moles. If that’s not an option for you, here are two other ways to get rid of moles.
While this method might not get rid of the mole completely, it will keep it out if certain areas of your garden. Once you locate the tunnel, you can burry small mesh, concrete or gravel at least two feet below the surface to block the little critter.
Moles are known to love moistness, so you can try to improve soil drainage to make the environment less comfortable for them.
Of course, if you want to capture and kill the animal, you can use a trap or call a professional to handle the situation, but try these ideas first, please!
