This is one tough battle! Some gardeners report success using repellents such as homemade garlic or garlic/pepper sprays or the commercially formulated sprays or dipping them in mole repellent at planting time. Others resort to covering the planting area with cages of wire mesh. Still others report that a pet dog or cat is the best method.
