4594 Why do I get moles in my garden beds and how can I get rid of them? what are they seeking in the garden?
Moles eat a wide range of soil inhabiting soft-bodied creatures including some pests but they also consume large numbers of earthworms that are common in most gardens. Getting rid of them can be very frustrating. There are a number of devices that are supposed to vibrate or make noises to repel moles but we are not aware of any that have proven effective. The best method of control is trapping but is takes some skill and experience to do it successfully. The best solution is probably to hire a pest professional that specializes in mole control. This almost always means that the mole dies, but it is generally quicker and more humane than death resulting from an incorrectly set or dealt with lethal-trap you might buy in a garden centre.
