Moles


Question: Annoying moles


I live in Gambolт (PV) and I would like to know what to do to get rid of the moles that, it seems, have chosen to colonize my garden, whose surface is around 10,000 square meters. Thanks and best wishes Dario

Answer: Annoying moles


Dear Dario,
yours is a big problem, especially because the area to be reclaimed is quite extensive.
In any case, these suggestions may be helpful.
There are good results emanators consisting of a plastic bell containing substances with repellent action very unpleasant to moles. These containers must be buried at a depth of about 30 cm near the holes (defect: they have a very limited range of action). You can also use plants that remove moles without killing them like Fritillaria Imperialis or Euphorbia Lathyris. But even this remedy is not good in your case since the surface is actually very extensive.
Another remedy may be to use a tight-meshed wire mesh to be placed around the area to be protected.
Finally, there are traps to be placed along the tunnels that capture the moles as they pass without damaging the animal (which can then be released at a safe distance).
