Red Pepper
Is Key To Keeping Pesky Moles Out Of Your Garden
Moles don't like the taste and smell of red pepper. Consequently, using red pepper in your garden can annoy moles enough to dissuade them from dwelling or digging in the area.
To utilize this method, you can chop up a red pepper and sprinkle it directly into the soil or apply powdered red pepper, especially around areas where mole activity is noticeable.
If you need a stronger solution, mix both chopped and powdered red pepper with water and castor oil, then spray this concoction onto your garden.
It's crucial to re-apply the red pepper, especially after rain, to ensure its continued effectiveness in keeping moles away from the garden.
