Hi everyone,i´m having trouble here in Portugal with moles in my veg patch.I am trying to be organic so not sure what to do.Someone told me to put mothballs down the holes but will the chemicals affect my organic soil? Any ideas?

Have a look at Question number 6126 - lots of suggestions on there.

take a can of coke and a garden cane, drink the coke-- push the cane into the molehill and suspend the can on top-- repeat with each molehill and drive it away from your ground--- It worked for me --- and they havn't been back! but you must do every molehill-- I understand that they don't like the noise :o)

Moles dont like noise so stomp around, pushing brambles or very prickly twigs down their run is said to deters them.

That must look so attractive, Pam, LOL. How long do you have to leave them there?
