Moles/Gophers

Anonymous added on May 6, 2011 | Answered

We live in a place where we have sandy loam soil. The moles and gophers are a problem, but in the past we've been able to control them. This year (we assume a mole) has tunneled into the garden and completely eaten two of our tomato plants from the root up. Nothing else could have done this because I had built a screen wire cage completely enclosed, including the top. Can you tell me what I could use in the garden area to repel these moles?

    In the past, we had mole problems but found that by putting an alarm clock (the old fashioed one which you wind up which has a big tic toc) into an old sweet tin ( wound up of course), dig a hole in his run and bury the tin, we have never seen the mole since
