We have an invasion of moles in our veggie garden and lawns,also in surrounding fields. Tried traps but there seems to be more coming from next doors woodland maybe. Is there anyway to put them off coming in our direction? There must be an army of them out there!...

...there probably is!  It does seem that there are alot of them this year, our roadside verges are heaped high - must get out there and gather some soil for the seed trays.

You can do things with noise to make them dislike your area, open plastic bottles in the holes make a nasty noise they don't like - there are commercial mole scarers too - don't know how effective they are against the gentlemen in velvet, It used to be said that moth balls dropped in the holes made them dislike that tunnel too, but as you can't get moth balls any more that's no good - maybe ammonia or something like that?

Hope someone knows more for you about this.

Thanks, have tried loads of things - including the 'supersonic molechaser', but they came up right beside that- so that was useless! lol..

Diluted Jeyes Fluid apparently gets rid of cats, maybe pouring some of that down the holes will work as well!
