    Liberally saturate ground with agricultural grade castor bean plant oil, plant castor bean plants, place multiple moth balls in the runs, smashed with a stick and forced further into the run. Add more solid moth balls, force into the run. Cover and place multiple bricks or rocks at ends of runs.

    Plant euphorbias. Unlike the other suggestions, they won’t harm the moles, only repel them.

    I bought several garden spinners at the dollar store . Then I pushed the stick ends into the ground 5-7 inches deep . When the wind blows and the spinners spin , it causes a vibration down the stick and into the ground ,that bothers moles , voles , & Chipmunk s . Good luck !

    Moles are territorial and a new one will replace the one that has been killed. Needless to say I am the mole killer of the family. I use cinch traps and lots of patience. For me, they work the best. If a mole has moved on to a new area, spray the dirt back into the ground with water, it "kind of " deters them from returning to the area.

    Easy way is bubble gum! No problem! Break into small pieces, drop down holes... they cannot digest it and it kills them. We use this in Arizona for all our underground varmints and it works!! Just keep your dog's and cats from eating it. We have gotten varmint free!!
