What NOT to do – Myths about moles explained
Many people believe that moles do not like vibrations and try to scare the moles away by putting windmills, or canes with bottles on them in the ground. As you can see from the first two photographs that I have taken in customer’s gardens, these do not work.
The third picture shows an ‘Electronic Mole Repellent’. I see many of these devices when I visit gardens. When people get a mole in their garden, they search the internet and find companies that sell these objects. They work on the same principle of vibrations in the ground. In actual fact they attract the worms and so attract the moles as you can see from this picture.
Some people become so exasperated with the mole digging up their garden, they try to stab or impale it with garden forks as pictured below. Firstly I would not advise against this as it is illegal to kill a mole in this way and secondly, you will waste a huge amount of time and energy in using this method.
Amongst gardeners, another myth is that moles do not like the plant Euphorbia. As you can see from this garden, there is lots of Euphorbia and moles, which clearly means that it is not true.
I was called to a garden recently who had had their garden landscaped at great expense and had ‘Mole Netting’ installed beneath the grass. This product claims to prevent moles from coming into your garden, but as you can see from the pictures, this also does not work.
