How to Get Rid of Moles & Voles in the Yard Fast with Home Remedies


Here are our top suggestions for getting rid of moles and voles in the backyard using natural home remedies. Take action before these small mammals make your yard look like a war zone.

1. Plug in Solar Mole Repellers

Solar mole repellers chase away moles and voles by emitting low-frequency sonic pulses into the ground. This makes it unbearable for underground rodents like moles and voles.

2. Set up a Peanut Butter Cage Trap

Get a cage trap that has sensitive triggers and smear peanut butter near the inside end of the trap. Both moles and voles will be attracted to the peanut butter and will (fingers crossed) go into the trap on the first attempt. You could try using the humane mouse traps to capture the moles and voles.

3. Remove their Food Source

Moles and voles will spend time in your backyard if there is a plentiful supply of food. Identify the grubs and small insects, such as ants and crickets, the moles like to feed on and find a way to repel those insects. For example, one way to repel ants is by making a DIY borax trap.

For voles, they primarily have a plant-based diet so you may need to regularly clear the yard of organic debris like dead leaves and fallen plant seeds. If you don’t already have one, creating a compost is good method for putting the dead leaves into good use.
