How to Get Rid of Ground Moles
I’ve lived in the country all of my life. Since I was itty bitty, I remember my daddy trying to figure out how to get rid of ground moles. He tried EVERY way possible to get rid of them. He tried Coca-Cola, bubble gum, the wind mill contraptions, standing guard with a shovel, and even sitting for hours with a gun. He also called them every name under the sun. He was always a DIY’er, by nature, so he wasn’t interested in hiring someone to take care of the moles for him.
Before I start getting hate comments, we LOVE animals. We have 2 dogs, and raised all sorts of animals. Ground moles, however, I can live without. Yes, they’re furry and they’re one of God’s creatures. But a fly is one of God’s creatures too and I have NO issues whatsoever, with being the maker of their demise!
Izzy, my boxer – God love her heart. She tries her darndest to catch ground moles. She’s just not fast enough. Here she is all brown nosed after trying to catch one. She even had dirt caked on her tongue!
Moles eat grubs, so people say to use this product and that product to get rid of grubs. That’s fine, but that won’t keep moles away because moles also eat earthworms. You don’t want to rid your yard of earthworms though, because those are good for the soil. So what is a person to do?
