Some of the tips that can help you get rid of moles include:

  • Mole trap: A mole-specific trap is considered the most effective way to get rid of moles. The animal gets trapped and killed in the trap. Both above-ground and below-ground traps are available for moles in the market. These traps come with instructions that need to be followed for faster and better results. 
  • Baits: Moles feed upon earthworms and grubs. They can be used as baits for moles. Mole baits infused with poisons are shaped as earthworms or grubs. Moles are attracted to these baits and get poisoned eventually.
  • Remove the food for moles: Moles feed on various garden insects, such as earthworms, crickets, and grubs. Using various methods to repel or control these insects will help you to keep the moles away.
  • Mole repellants: Several mole repellants are available to keep away these animals. These repellants produce certain smells that keep away the moles. Mole repellents must be used generously and regularly (at monthly intervals) to reduce mole activity in your lawn or garden. Because moles can dig deep, they can avoid these repellents and stay underground. Thus, using repellents alone may not be enough to remove all the moles effectively. An easy-to-prepare repellent for moles is castor oil. It keeps the moles away, and its regular use can help get rid of these animals.
  • Gassing: You need to use store-bought gas bombs that poison the moles for this method. Gas bombs must be placed at entrances to the mole tunnels. The gas bombs release poisonous gases in the mole tunnels to kill them.
