If you are in need of a chemical free homemade mole repellent then you have come to the right place. Moles are a constant threat for a lot of people in the country and even more if you are a garden owner.


Moles are small and even adorable creatures that like to live underground.

The problem is when these little animals come close to our properties. They are a danger for any underground wiring, pipes and most of all plants and gardens.

You want to protect your yard, your property, but you also need to protect yourself. There are many repellents on the market that really work and will get rid of the moles effectively.

The problem is that most of the times, these commercial products might contain chemical ingredients that may be harmful or even toxic for humans or pets.

Easy New Recipe: Homemade Mole Repellent

It is really simple to make a safe and effective homemade mole repellent for gardens, free of dangerous chemicals.

As moles are mammals you will find that this repellent is very similar to the one we used in our homemade squirrel repellent spray.

Just follow the next instructions to make your DIY mole repellent with a couple of household materials: Mix 1 gallon of water with 5 tbsp of Tabasco sauce and 3 tbsp of dish soap.

Pour this mixture in the holes and tunnels in the area. Sprinkle your homemade repellent and let it soak into the ground that you would like to protect.

If there is something that moles definitely hate is the taste of spicy food. This repellent will let them know that they are not welcome in your garden or backyard.

They would rather go somewhere else than passing through tabasco flavored ground.

As an alternative ingredient you may replace the hot sauce with castor oil and you are guaranteed to still get the same excellent results. Choose the ingredient that comes more handy for you.

Remember that one important thing on homemade traps or repellents is to keep your budget low with the same high results.

Another thing that you can do to spread this homemade mole repellent is to use a metal stake to make holes in the ground. Then just pour the mixture there so it can be better absorbed by the soil.

Alternative Natural Mole Repellents

If you decide that the Tabasco sauce is not your best choice then you might want to also try garlic powder as a repellent.

The best thing about using garlic is that you don’t have to mix anything else. Just spread the powder in the ground and the moles will just go away.
