There is a mole in the garden

lowraineMay 6, 2009

Please help. There is a mole in the garden right next to the tomatoes. How do I get rid of him? I have seen something that you stick into the ground that sends off a signal that is suppose to keep them away, does anyone know if it works before I spend $20 on it. Thanks

Poison peanuts work well, and you can find them at Lowes.

Here something that might help, as in what not to do!!! the accent is a little thick but bare with it! its years old 70's maybe 80's but I remember it so well, I can quote it?? my dad was also waging war on a mole at the time.

Here is a link that might be useful: The Mole

Heather that was great, thanks for sharing. EG, are you serious about poison peanuts? If so, what do I do with them, put them in the area where the soil has been disturbed?

Lowraine - I'm dead serious....A mole creates tunnels, and uses them repeatedly. The package has a cone-shaped dispenser, and you penetrate the tunnel without collapsing it - and deposit the granules in there. You won't have your mole problem anymore....trust me.

Thanks guys, I am headed to Lowes. I have a 16 year old dog who retired about 4 years ago. I have had several offers of a cat but don't want to go there. Thanks again.
