Moles are not considered pests, but there are still negative consequences from the presence of an animal on your site.

Experts suggest the following ways to humanely drive the animal away:

  • Noise repellents
  • Aromatic repellents
  • Fence from moles.

Noise repellents

Moles have very sensitive hearing; loud sounds frighten and irritate animals. Therefore, the most popular and effective way to get rid of moles in yard fast is sound and ultrasonic repellents. These devices look like pins that need to be stuck into the ground in places where moles are detected, since vibrations propagate well through the thickness of the soil.

The mole has a well-developed not only hearing, but also sense of smell. Therefore, one of the most popular ways to deal with a mole is to place substances with a strong odor in tunnels. It is recommended to use:

  • coffee grounds;
  • garlic;
  • castor oil.

There are also special aromatic granules sold in UK stores that need to be scattered on the ground and watered with water or poured into mole tunnels.

The most reliable, but also the most labor—intensive method of protection is the installation of an underground fence around the perimeter of the site. It can be made in the form of a ditch filled with crushed stone, slate or broken brick, or dig a fine mesh or sheet steel into the ground.

The minimum depth of such a wall is a meter below ground level. It must be remembered that the mole can also move on the surface, so the barrier should rise at least 20 cm above the ground.
