Hi all!

GloryB, just be really glad it isn't a "resident groundhog."  Hub & I don't care about lawn so moles don't bother us.  But this gigantic groundhog & his humongous holes & his forty-zillion fleas & all ... yikes.

We've consulted vets, game wardens, pest-control experts, farmers & everybody else we could think of out here in The Rural Wilds.  We've even had people with dogs they swore killed groundhogs all over their property bring the dogs here -- even paid some of those people! -- but basically the canines just laid around yawning (maybe it wasn't their own territory to defend? who knows).

Actually, everyone around here has continually advised us that the best (also kindest) thing for this pest is a well-placed bullet. 
Well, after about 5 years of VERY grudging VERY reluctant VERY annoying groundhoggy-coexistence on my part... if hubby doesn't use the bullet on the beast I believe I'm gonna hafta use it on myself... !

I have a neighbor that is always shooting at gophers, I don't know how many he gets, they move pretty fast.  But, even though I've been around guns all my life, I have never handled one, so that's not an option for me.

i was reading a site about 'strange uses for every day products" and it said one way to get rid of moles was to put kitty litter into the holes....its said the mole would smell its natural enemy and vacat the yard...not sure if it means to use fresh or used, though, lol.

the other one went along with the castor bean plant...but it said to take castor bean oil, put it in a spray bottle with some water and spray it on ur lawn around the holes.

hope these help, meg

I',ve done that, too.  Mole repelent is a caster oil based product.  I've used both the dry product, and the on that is sprayed on with the garden hose.
