RE: Need some advice...

Thanks Rich.  We thought after the recent downpours that our mole had moved
on to better feeding grounds, but that wasn't the case.  We will have to see
what we can do once the puppies aren't demanding ALL our time.  (We're
trying to get momma to stay in the back yard where the mole has not
ventured...thus far, anyway.)

Hi Donna and all,

Here is the secret formula:

Concentrate mixture, makes 1 gallon of concentrate:
COMBINE 6 oz of castor oil (unrefined), 2 tbs. of dishwashing liquid known
for it's degreasing capabilities, 1 gallon of water
COMBINE 4 oz of this concentrate with 1 gal of water, (1 gallon covers about
300 sq ft)
Lawn should be watered with about 1/2" water.  Apply Mole repellent, water
in with about 1" water.
Reapply after 30 days, or after a heavy rain which will leach the castor oil
through the soil.

This makes a product similar to a commercial product called "Mole Med",
except that you save a ton of money by making your own.
