Ecological Ways to Drive Moles Out of the Garden

Ecological Ways to Drive Moles Out of the GardenAlthough moles don't eat plants, they can damage the roots of plants and lead to their decay by digging numerous canals in the ground. There are many natural ways you can drive moles out of your garden. These are some of them.


One of the simplest ways is to drive reed sticks into the ground. When the wind blows, the reed will produce a sound that irritates moles. You can drive them away in a similar way by driving a plastic bottle (which you have previously cut in half) into the ground so that the opening of the bottle is in the ground.

One of the simplest ways to repel moles is to plant plants whose smell moles don't like. This method does not work quickly, but it's easy to apply and can be used as a preventive measure.

As moles are sensitive to odors, there are numerous plant species whose odor is unpleasant to them. These are primarily garlic, beans, chili peppers, elderberry and black currant. You can also add plants that have an intense odor directly to the molehill.

  • Garlic - it's enough to plant it in the garden, and you can also apply it by cutting a piece of garlic in half and pressing it into the ground, especially near the holes.

  • Tagetes - in addition to being very decorative in the garden, the scent of this flower efficiently drives moles away.

  • Mint - this plant repels moles with its sharp smell.

  • Lemon - the easiest way is to put the peel of a squeezed lemon directly into the molehill.

All these ways of fighting moles are ecological and very simple. Most importantly, you will not pollute your garden, and you will drive away moles.

Not sure if it was a one time thing, but we had some ugly molehills in our yard, and I sprinkled them heavily with red pepper flakes and mixed them in a little into their holes, and reapplied after a rain. No more molehills in my lawn and garden!
