My 89 yr old grandmother still gets out in her garden whenever she can (when weather permits & she feels well enough to), its the one thing that gives her independence since she can't drive anymore. She still lives alone, but I live down the street & come over daily. If she didn't have her yard to work on, I think a peice of her would die. She really loves her yard & always has.
The whole neighborhood talks about it & they don't even know who's yard it is! She's even been in the local paper a couple of times! Her yard is beautiful! She works so hard in it, it just makes her sooooo happy! She has had strokes previously, & is weak often.
Well, this year the moles have come back in force. I mean her yard is eaten up w/ mole tunnels. There isn't a spot in her lawn that you don't sink down in! I'm scared to death she'll trip & fall because of the tunnels! Not to mention they ate up her garden last summer.
Needless to say, she wasn't too happy about that. Last year we bought some poison that looked just like cat litter. It seemed to move them to her neighbor's yard, but this year they are back & worse than ever!
She's got a huge yard & they have bout every bit of it covered w/ tunnels or mole hills. Does anyone have any advice? I'll be doing the baiting or whatnot for her. Traps I have never done, but if they work I'll try them. Has anyone heard that chewing gum works? Just something I've read, wasn't sure if it worked or not? Any suggestions would be awesome, thanks!!!
