We have moles merrily digging their way around the garden, and solar powered sonic repellers are not working (tho they did last year).
Humane suggestions would be welcome!
Humane methods are pretty useless. You will have to kill it in a trap to get rid of it.
Thanks Welshonion, but I just can't do that...
If you scan down to the bottom they recommend a humane trap - they don't tell you what to do with the mole after you've caught it tho'.
Dovefromabove - many thanks, a very sensible article, and a humane trap as a bonus!
very interesting article on this site about teh Humane traps.. not really what I woudl call humane..http://www.beagleproducts.com/blogs/blog/13511185-humane-live-tube-traps-are-they-humane
See my thread with the Daily Mail article, apparently those children's windmill things stuck in the top of the mole hill work as they don't like the sound..........sounds a bit bizarre to me so don't shoot the messenger
Put a child’s windmill on a mole-hill — the vibrations of the turning plastic blades should deter even the most persistent creatures.
They also hate the smell of orange peel, so a few bits scattered on the grass should keep your lawn intact.
