Vinegar Is Key When Mole-Proofing Your Yard And Garden
Thanks to their keen sense of smell, moles are deterred by the strong aroma of vinegar, making it an effective and natural solution to keep the pests out of your yard and garden.
To create this repellent, simply mix 1 cup of white vinegar with 3 cups of water in a household spray bottle. Apply this concoction in areas showing signs of
mole activity.
If possible, dig a hole in one of the raised soil areas and spray inside the hole. This treatment should be repeated every few days until there are no new signs of mole activity.
While vinegar is generally safe to use around larger bushes and trees, it can damage smaller bedding plants, such as pansies, impatiens, and hostas, as well as turf grass.
Therefore, you should avoid using this mixture on or close to your landscaping or garden plants, and only apply it when absolutely necessary to manage mole activity.
