How to Prevent Moles from Choosing Your Property
Moles are extremely common this time of year in Canada, which means homeowners need to be on the lookout for hallmark signs of a mole problem. However, preventing moles from being attracted to your property is a great way to mitigate them this season. Read on to find out how to prevent moles this spring. If you do face a mole infestation, contact your trusted pest removal company as soon as possible.
Eliminate food sources.
Moles love insects and grubs. If you get rid of them, moles will have fewer reasons to want to inhabit your yard. You can kill these insects with nematodes, milky spores or insecticides.
Moles dislike plants with strong smells, such as daffodils, marigolds, and anything in the allium family. Plant these species around the edges of your garden to form a natural barrier or plant in raised beds to protect root systems. If you prefer, you can also purchase ready-made mole barriers at your local garden store.
While this method does require active maintenance, it’s a great option for those who have a knack for gardening during the spring and summer months.
Create an unpleasant environment.
Moles are bothered by disruptive sounds and environments. An easy option to prevent moles from being attracted to your yard is to purchase a sonic spike, insert it into the soil, and allow it to emit irritating sounds and pulses that will force the moles to move on. The best part is that these sounds are inaudible to humans.
Create a barrier.
Digging a trench approximately two feet deep around the perimeter of an area you wish to protect is a straightforward mole repellant. Fill the trench with rocks or wire mesh to prevent the moles from burrowing into your beloved garden, flower patch, or sitting area.
