    Hi Adele, moles won't eat plants, but voles, rabbits and groundhogs will. Check for tunnels near the holes, voles tunnel like moles do, but rabbits don't. Groundhogs dig large tunnels. Squirrels and skunks will dig up plants but usually don't eat them. I suspect rabbits or voles. Try sprinkling bloodmeal around the area to ward them off. For voles, if you see tunnels, run the water hose in the tunnel and if you have a dog or cat, let them urinate near the area a couple times. I hope this helps!

    Unfortunately the only thing I've know to work is mole traps which kill them. Because you're in a mobile home I'm guessing you have close neighbors and so it's doubtful getting rid of the few under your home will make much difference as there are probably alot nearby ready to take their place. Perhaps you can ask the mobile home park for help. They might call someone to take the problem on for the whole park. Good luck Adele!

    try chucking a box of moth balls around and under the mobile home. this is a strong odor and will keep a lot of critters away.

    Castor oil is a popular ingredient in mole repellents. You can mix your own mole repellent by mixing 6 oz. of castor oil and 2 tbsp of Murphy's Oil Soap or dish soap in one gallon of water to make a concentrate. Mix one ounce of concentrate per gallon of water and apply to the ground under the edge of the mobile home - may need to apply once a season - good luck

    Hi Adele, here's an article from Better Homes & Garden that may help you. It says there's only one or two moles, usually. So maybe it will be easier than you think!
