Solve Your Garden Mole Problem With This Simple Hot Sauce Hack
Moles often hurt your garden by digging tunnels to search for food, destroying your plants and the lawn. To deter these pests easily and humanely, use hot sauce.
Mix a cup of water, ½ cup of castor oil, several drops of peppermint oil, and a teaspoon of Tabasco in a container. Then, add a few cotton balls and let them absorb the solution.
Drop cotton balls into the moles' tunnels or leave them in areas frequented by the pests. Alternatively, create a mixture that can be dumped directly into the pests' tunnels.
To do so and drive the moles out of tunnels, combine a gallon of water with four tablespoons of chili powder, four tablespoons
of dish soap, and six tablespoons of hot sauce.
Moles are blind, so they rely on their sense of smell to navigate. As a result, they are deterred by the strong scent of hot sauce. However, you'll need to reapply it frequently.
