Moles digging up your yard? Here’s one way to curb the problem!
We have a beautiful yard (at least we think so), and never more so than when it is newly mown. Last week I finished mowing after a few days of rain. The yard looked green and lush and gorgeous with the exception of the dirt spots where we have been battling moles for a while…they are constantly digging up the yard and seem impossible to get rid of.
About an hour later I looked out the window and saw fresh dirt pile. Grrr! We have tried everything to get rid of these moles except traps, so we got a couple of mole traps and set them up as instructed on the fresh mole hole. A few hours later I looked out the window and was amazed to see yet another fresh dirt pile…right next to the unsprung trap!
Of course, I did see the humor in this and wanted to take a photo share with my kids. I went out to snap a picture and as I did, I noticed that the pile was moving… The mole was still in there digging his way out. Unbelievable. Insult to injury.
I went and got my husband told him to get a shovel.
We waited another minute to make sure the pile was still wiggling, dug in and flipped it over. Voilà!
Gotcha! There is definitely more than one way to whack a mole!
So yes, you can catch a mole without poison pellets, poison slugs, or even mole traps! Just another day on this suburban homestead!
