Rather than destroying moles, natural repellents may keep them at bay. Natural mole repellent can be as simple as planting certain vegetative barriers throughout your yard that deter moles. These include plants like daffodils, marigolds, alliums, and fritillarias. Using these plants in your landscaping may lessen the chance of any future mole infestations.
Moles are not generally considered serious disease carriers. However, they sometimes carry parasites such as ticks and fleas. Fleas can potentially transmit Lyme disease. Do not touch trapped moles with your bare hands when disposing of them. In rare cases, moles have been known to carry rabies, but the more likely risk is from parasites.
Homeowner DIY methods can be difficult to master when it comes to ridding your yard of moles. Their labyrinth of network tunnels makes it difficult to pinpoint where the little critters are active. If you find that your own methods of mole removal are not working, it’s time to contact a professional. Apex Wildlife Control has trained wildlife technicians who can locate and remove moles.
