I have heard Moles dont like the smell of Mothballs. Get a packet and drop some down their tunnels, so they go next door.

We had a mole one year. I read somewhere that if you addressed the earth-spoil , hoping the mole was around that area, and asked it politely to go next door, the mole would oblige.

I tried this adding the fact that my neighbout was a big-wig with the RSPCA and, therefore, would never harm it.

Our mole disappeared but our neighbour spent months trying to get rid of his newly-acquired one, even going so far as to take his car on to the lawn and trying to asphyxiate it withthe exhaust pipe.

(I felt very guilty!) :O)

Oh Eirlys, I'm full of cold and reading your reply to this Blog, made me laugh so much it brought of a coughing fit.
OH came dashing in from the kitchen to see if I was alright!
I just had this vision of you bending over 'talking to the ground' thanks for cheering me up!
