I am going to try Ricin this summer. Isn't it supposed to keep moles away too?

I've not heard about moles disliking ricin, but if they eat it they will certainly not return - it is a surce of a deadly poison, as used on the Bulgarian diplomat assassinated in London some years ago by a poisoned pellet injected from an umbrella !
There is a species of euphorbia that is called 'Mole plant' because it is supposed to deter Mr Mole.
