How to Get Rid of Persistent Moles

Moles are mammals that dig holes and tunnels underground. They are brown or gray in color, and have long claws and uniquely shaped feet which make it easy for them to burrow through underground tunnels. Moles eat mostly grubs and earth worms, which is why they prefer moist soil over dry soil. You can easily tell if you have a mole problem by the definitive raised ridges of grass or soil in your yard. If you have a mole problem and don't want to kill the moles with a trap or use harmful chemicals, try this home remedy recommended by Ciscoe Morris.

Moles can burrow into your yard and leave unsightly tunnels.

Step 1

Blend 1 to 2 cups mint leaves and stems with 2 to 3 tsps. water in a blender. Add the mint leaf substance to a large pot of water.

Step 2

Place the large pot on the stove and simmer for 30 minutes.

Step 3

Add 5 gallons of water to the mint leaf liquid to make Mint Mole Blaster.
