There was a time in the garden business that I couldn’t give away mole ( gopher) repellents. As of the last two years, I can’t keep it in stock!
My theory is because of the limited rainfall, we have been inundated with moles and gophers. They are coming down from the hills.
Here’s the deal. With gophers, you will have the holes open and exposed in your lawn and garden beds. With moles you will notice mounds of “fine”-powdery soil covering the holes.
There is this product called “Molemax” that will help repel both. The beauty about this product is you don’t have to use the “old school” poison baits that were dangerous to kids, pets, and your ground water.
I have had plenty customers that swear by it.
One pound covers about 500 square feet.
Here’s the cool part, I heard that it also deters rabbits, skunks, and even armadillos! I guess that’s why we don’t have armadillos here in So. Cal!
Any questions, feel free to ask.
