I know it doesn't really work at all (there's a mole goal aboat this hole??) but we have a mole in the garden and it's digging all the grass up. Anybody any ideas how to get rid? Hate the idea of killing it - is there any way to persuade it to go away?

This won`t help but it may make you smile?

I am not a goose or a moose on the loose
I am a MOLE and I live in a hole.
Just for you Thumbers

Was that not Basil Brush Polremy. A quite different species altogether!!

You could try this:
Seriously, I know of no way of getting rid of them without killing them. They sell some (safe) explosive devices for the purpose in many bricolage stores as well as special poisons. The spring traps are almost useless.

Basil Brush was only two booms - Boom Boom.
The "I am a mole and I live in a hole" ended with boom - boom boom.
Well, I think it did.
But then of course, I have had a couple of riojas.

Yeah, I think it was just me - I used to add the boom boom boom bit
Hope you enjoy it, Thumbers.
Catchy little number to drive you mad.

Just returned from some time away warming myself, to see this "mole" question.
The remedy that a Norfolk farmer told me was to take a wide topped deepish bottle (in practice,a wine one will work),dig a hole in the mole infested ground,and bury said wine bottle with just about 3 cm of the top poking out above the surface. Then hope for some windy days (hardly unknown in this neck of the woods),and when the wind blows over the surface of the opening of the bottle it creates a whistling ,vibrating sound,which,evidently the moles hate,so they take their tunneling business elsewhere.
I know it sounds bizarre,but it has worked for me on several occasions both here and in E Anglia.

Another thing worth mentioning is that (and I don't know whether this is a coincidence or not),is that up to 2 yrs ago we were plagued by moles. Then we got two young,very hungry cats . The moles have been notable by their absence since then.
