While there are some home remedies for getting rid of moles, such as installing pinwheels or placing chewing gum in the runs, they are not generally effective.

Moles eat insects and do not damage plants. They are in fact helpful in some ways so it is recommended to leave them alone unless their activities are causing a dangerous situation for people. If that is the case, a trap is the most effective solution although difficult to carry out. Here is additional information about moles (You may need to cut and paste the complete url into your browser to make it work correctly.)

Here is information about voles (these do eat plant roots), in case you are actually experiencing a problem with voles.

I hope this answers your question.
