What is a mole tree?
People also ask, can a mole kill a tree?
Moles make tunnels in the lawn and landscape while searching for insects, mainly earthworms and grubs and they will not feed on plants. The likelihood that they have caused the tree problems is low. Even if you are successful in reducing or eliminating a current situation with moles, your efforts will be short-lived.
One may also ask, how do you rid your yard of moles? Mix up a spray of 3 parts castor oil to 1 part dish detergent; use 4 tablespoons of this concoction in a gallon of water, and soak the tunnels and the entrances. Dip an ear of corn in roofing tar and place it in one of their tunnels. Moles hate the smell of tar, and you'll block their escape.
Then, what is the fastest way to get rid of moles in your yard?
There are three methods to use in ridding your lawn of moles:
- Eliminate the food source of moles: insects, grubs, worms with a pesticide like Talstar which can be bought here.
- Repel the mole.
- Use a bait such as Mole Patrol to kill moles.
Can you have a mole as a pet?
Known commonly as a garden pest, moles are not good pets and often die quickly in captivity. However, if you discover an injured mole or a mole that cannot be released into the wild, there are ways you can provide for it. Pour dirt into the terrarium deep enough to provide your mole with digging space.
