Most homeowners will not be aware that they are housing a mole until they stepped on the tunnel of the moles and twisted their ankle. Ground moles are furry creatures that spend most of their time below the ground. They can dig several underground tunnels that can extend up to hundreds of feet. Simple treatment and method might convince these burrowers that your yard is not the most suitable place for them to stay.
How to Use Dawn Soap Against Joliet Moles
You can get rid of the moles using trap. However, if you prefer a simpler method that will not involve relocation or release of the creature, you will probably consider the use of dawn soap.
Preparing the Ingredients
You will need spray bottle, water, castor oil, and dawn soap. If you do not have a castor oil, you can purchase one at a drug store nearby. This is usually found in the row of laxatives. It is a thick oil with a pale-yellow color. It has a faint gross odor and it tastes disgusting. Remember that castor oil will not be mixed perfectly with water. Therefore, you must shake the spray bottle vigorously before applying it on the key areas. You should also store the castor oil to a safe place since this is combustible. It should be placed in a cool and dry area away from direct heat or sun.
According to gardeners, this type of repellent will not only be effective against Illinois moles. They claimed that it is also powerful in controlling the infestation of burrowing creatures. Once you gathered all the necessary tools and ingredients, you may now heat water using your kettle. Place the 6 oz of castor oil in a separate container. Add at least 3 quartz of the warm water into the container. Mix this together with the dawn soap. Shake the container until all the ingredients have been mixed. Place the mixture into the spray bottle and use this directly in the affected areas. For the remaining solution, pour it into the holes of the tunnels.
In case you are not successful in getting rid of the Joliet moles, repeat the entire process after a week. In order to enjoy the best result, employ this method during the early part of the spring season. This will ensure that the moles are not yet established in your yard.
Moles just like humans will not appreciate the powerful odor of castor oil. Once you pour it into the soil, this will act as a repellent that will keep them away. It will not kill the animal, but it apparently caused digestive problems. They can also experience itching if the solution penetrated their skin. It does not cause any debilitating effect, but it will encourage them to relocate their nest elsewhere.
Understand that there are no repellents that will deliver you an optimal solution against wildlife infestation. To get rid of the moles, you must determine the original cause of their infestation. By choosing the best solution, you will be able to eliminate them completely.
