Natural Repellent For Moles

How To Deter Moles

Moles are not blind, but see poorly. They have poor eyesight and rely on their other senses to navigate the world around them.

Moles are primarily insectivores and eat earthworms, grubs and other soft-bodied insects. Moles also will eat small rodents that they can catch underground.

Moles are solitary animals that usually live alone in their tunnels throughout the year except during mating season when they may be seen together at the entrance to their tunnel system.

They are active day or night, depending on weather conditions such as temperature extremes or moisture content of soil which determine whether they need to dig new tunnels in order to stay warm enough during cold spells versus digging deeper into existing tunnels so that rainwater does not seep into them during wet seasons when surface temperatures remain high enough for long enough periods each day without any need for additional insulation from outside elements such as heaters inside homes where people might suspect there were some type of pests like rats nearby causing issues but don’t really know what those problems really look like yet…

What Do You Need?


  • 200g of castor oil
  • 200g of red hot chilli powder
  • 50g of strong soap
  • 1l of water

How To Make It?

  • Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend on high speed until they are thoroughly mixed.
  • Pour the mixture into a spray bottle, and use as needed to keep moles away from your garden.

Where Do You Put It?

You can use the product in two ways:

  • Using a shovel or trowel, dig a small hole approximately 3 inches deep and 4 inches wide. Place 1 to 2 drops of repellent into the hole. Cover up with dirt. Do this at various places away from your home, such as in mole tunnels, under trees and shrubs, etc.
  • Pour some repellent into an old sock or other fabric bag and put it in areas where you have seen moles before (under your bushes, around your garden bed).

This is a very simple method to get rid of moles.

You won’t need any chemicals, traps, pest control services or mole repellents. You won’t need mole poison or baits either. Pesticides are often seen as the best way to get rid of moles. However, this can be expensive and some poisons may not be safe for your family or pets – so it’s better to avoid them if possible!
