Mole prevention is needed to remove small creatures that leave holes and messes around. Moles dig in yards and houses to find insects for food. They have large appetites and a lot of energy. As they roam during the day or night, study their habits and apply an effective repellent.
Moles build complex tunnels that cause extensive damage. It is easy to spot a molehill that looks unattractive and out of place. A typical mole repellent comes in a liquid or powder. Castor oil is a widely used item. The repellent is spread over the hills and then saturated with a water to make it spread throughout the systems. Saturation is recommended for the greatest effects.
In addition to chemicals, there are devices that get rid of pests. A solar mole repellent shoots vibrations into the ground that irritate the invaders. The first instinct for the creatures is to escape out of the tunnel. Keep the sounds going in and eventually the moles seek peace somewhere else. The energy-efficient device takes its power from the sun.
Various natural remedies are available that claim to repel moles. The point is to eradicate the problem without harming the animals or environment. However, only a few natural methods actually work. One method is to set up barriers around the outlying parts of the backyard. The barriers are buried deep enough to ensure that the animals do not reach them. This method is only useful at preventing moles from entering the yard. If a barrier does not work, you could fumigate the area by pumping gas into the tunnel. The work is not entirely effective because the tunnel is usually very long and requires a large supply of gas. Also, the gas could get absorbed into the soil before it reaches the mole.
Moles are pests because they create giant hills and eat through gardens. One mole can cause serious damage to a garden. One solution is to call the professional services of a mole exterminator. The pros review the extent of the problem and set up traps or spray repellents. However, not all pros use safe, natural chemicals that do not leave messes. Whenever you can, take care of the problem yourself and have total control over the results.
