How to Get Rid of Moles and Gophers Naturally

Trying to grow a garden or even maintain a property of any size can be a daunting task in itself. But things can get especially troublesome when you’re dealing with pests such as moles and gophers. These little guys live underground and dive burrows, tunnels, and leave holes all over your property. It can be annoying and dangerous. But, for some of us, the thought of using chemicals and fatal solutions isn’t an option. So, what do you do?

There are tons of effective natural solutions to get rid of moles and gophers. They despise noises and strong smells so placing a portable radio in your yard can help ward them off. Sprinkling some coffee grounds around their holes also helps.
