Q: How do you control moles from destroying your yard and plants? It is my understanding that moles are seeking to eat insects and grubs. I have read that by putting lime granules down it neutralizes the soil. I would love to learn the Amish natural remedies to preserving your grass, flower gardens, and vegetable gardens.
A. There are many different things that can be tried to encourage moles to leave your yard. A few things that some Amish do are:
- Dumping dirty, soapy laundry water down the mole holes.
- Spraying the yard with a mixture of water and castor oil.
- Some will buy lots of Juicy Fruit gum and stuff pieces into the mole tunnels. I’m not sure how that’s supposed to help, but some declare it does wonders.
