Eliminating Moles And Creatures That Make Burrowing Holes In Your Yard

Moles and other burrowing critters can be amusing when they visit your yard. But what is no fun at all is when they decide to take up residence. Their burrowing and making of holes is something that you just cannot work with.


Damage To Your Yard

The burrowing damages your yard and makes it ugly. Those little creatures are just not good at landscaping. So it is a pain when they take over and decide to redesign your yard.

Hazard To Your Family

The holes in your yard are also a hazard for your kids. You certainly do not want your little ones getting hurt because they fell in an unexpected mole hole. It’s dangerous for you, as well. You are never too big to fall… Right?

Dangerous For Pets

You do not want your pets getting hurt either. Moles and those other burrowing creatures can be unscrupulous and unfriendly.


And you can’t have your beloved pup out and about, sniffing around, then encountering one of these ruthless creatures. Someone would end up getting hurt… And you can be almost certain that may just be your pet.

What to do?

Avoid Using Poison

You cannot just put poison in your yard to eliminate these unwelcomed critters. That would not be safe for you, your children and your pets. And you want to be free to enjoy your yard without having to worry about getting poisoned.

Do not even think about spraying your yard with harsh chemicals. You want your soil and lawn to be healthy. And if you have a garden, you want to avoid using chemicals. So deterring these burrowing creatures with harsh chemicals is not an option.

Plus, you might not want to actually kill them. They are no fun to have around because of all the possible dangers.

But if you can get them to relocate to someplace other than your yard, without poisoning them, that would be the best thing to do.

The Solution

A mixture of Dawn and Castor Oil can get these creatures packing and moving out. Combine 1/2 cup Castor Oil, 1 ounce Dawn Liquid Soap, and 5 cups tap water in a bottle. Spray your yard with this mixture.
