    Hello! Voles, moles, and gophers hate castor oil. It ruins the taste of what they like to eat best; that is, insects and grubs. Your local garden store typically sells castor oil pellets that you can spread in your yard. They are NOT harmful to pets or people. You can even set the pellets in a direction that you want the voles to go. They will head for another area to infest, one that has better tasting grub! Good luck!

    Get rid of moles without harming pets

    If you want to get rid of the mole without harming it, follow these steps to make your homemade mole remedy:

    1. Blend together 1/4 Cup castor oil, 1 Tablespoon cayenne pepper, and 2 Tablespoons liquid dish detergent. Use a blender to mix them properly.
    2. Add 6 Tablespoons of water and blend it again.
    3. Put the solution in a sealed container and keep it in storage until you see a fresh mound appear.
    4. When you are ready, add 2 Tablespoons of the original solution with 1 gallon of water and mix well.
    5. Either use a spray bottle or simply dump the solution out onto the problem area. Pour it down the mole holes, as well as along the top of the tunnels and around the mounds of dirt.

    Once this mole bait is applied, the mole will most likely leave the area as he will no longer like the taste of the insects that he’s been eating in your yard.
