Keeping Moles and Gophers Out of Your Yard

Bronze Feedback Medal for All Time! 121 Feedbacks

Editor's Note: This appears to be an urban legend and there is no scientific evidence to support it. Other sites suggest that the rodents might abandon their holes due to the activity rather than the gum itself.


When you start noticing mole hills or gopher runs in your yard, just get some Wrigleys Juicy Fruit gum. You chew it just until it is soft and the flavor is starting to come out. Then you poke a hole in the hill or run and drop the gum down into it and cover it up. The moles or gophers are attracted to the scent of fruit, but, when they eat it, they can't digest the gum and it kills them. The only problem I have ever had is that my dog likes the gum and will dig it up and eat it. So, I try to put it in areas he can't reach.
