Get rid of moles with Dawn soap
If you’ve been working hard on your lawn and garden, one of the most frustrating things you can find on your grass are mole hills.
Those large lumps of brown dirt can totally ruin the look of your luscious lawn, and burrowing rodents can cause damage to the grass roots underneath.
Moles aren’t all bad through, they do serve a purpose. Creatures that burrow under the ground help to aerate the soil and help keep the bug population under control. Moles eat insects and worms in the ground so if you have a few mole hills on your lawn take comfort knowing they are getting rid of spiders and other bugs.
You can kill moles with a trap but I prefer cruelty-free methods. Instead of killing the rodents I’d rather they prefer not to tear up my lawn in the first place (and go for the neighbors instead I suppose).
You can get live traps and relocate the moles but I have a recipe to share that uses one of my favorite household supplies: Dawn dish soap. Combined with castor oil it makes a great natural mole repellent for your lawn. Many commercial repellents use concentrated pellets or liquids composed of castor oil and other irritating ingredients to drive moles away. Now you can make your own!
