I am not aware that it would have much effect, if any on moles. I doesn't appear to repel them. It will help keep away bugs, but not mammals as far as my research goes. If you still want to try, it is up to you. It seems to be a new world there. Now there is a method of live capture using coffee cans, but I do not think this is what you are referring to.
