Is It True That Sprinkling Tide Detergent Will Get Rid Of Moles In The Yard?

I was dealing for weeks with a creepy mole that was ripping up my yard. God, it was really hard to get rid of it. I’ve tried all sorts of remedies, including standing like a crazy lady near the mole hole with a shovel in my hand to hit it when it showed up – even if this was not the method I would’ve want to use to get rid of it.

I’m human and I want to act alike, and killing the animal is not the solution. I’ve tried the mothball solution and it didn’t go away. It dug other tunnels to make more room into my yard.

I tried to trick it with some bait and capture the mole into a cage, but isn’t it smart! It didn’t bite it!
However, I read an article a few days ago in how to use Tide detergent to creep moles out. Don’t know how, but I can honestly tell you that there’s no mole digging tunnels in my yard anymore. It must’ve gone away or something!
It seems that Tide detergent works as an eye and nose irritating making breathing impossible, which is one of mole’s main senses.

How to use Tide detergent to put moles on the run?

You need:

  • 3 cups of Tide (powdered or liquid)
  • 1 cup of Castor oil
  • Water
  • Bucket
  • Spray bottle
  • Mix Tide detergent with Castor oil in the bucket until homogenization and then fill the bucket with water. Mix again!
  • Take the sprayer and fill it with this “get rid of moles solution” and shake well before using it.
  • Now let’s spray the solution all over the yard. I mean, literally, all over the yard: mole holes, along the ground where you suspect the tunnel is dug or you see small holes.
  • After spraying the solution in the yard, water the lawn thoroughly until the ground is soaked to help this natural mole repellant work into the soil.
  • I said earlier, that I don’t know how this solution works, but it seems to be a great mole repellent since there’s no pest in my yard! I hope it lasts!
