The moles are coming
The moles are coming closer and closer.
They were in the meadow across the stream, last week I noticed there were mole hills in my neighbours garden and now they are getting closer to my fence near the chickens. I really hope they dont come back in our garden again. Last year we had one that got under my fake grass – it made a right mess by tunnelling all over – but then it couldnt burrow down through the hardcore, and it couldnt come up through the fake grass so it was stuck in the layer of sand , going round and round. the area looked like the surface of the moon.
we decided to trap it – and bought a humane tunnel trap – peeled back the edge of the astroturf and set it up. Two days later we had caught the culprit- only problem was whilst the mole was in the trap overnight – it rained and the little * went and drowned – so much for a humane trap!
Now I fear we are going to be faced with the same problem again – unless anyone knows a good mole repellant?
