Two different questions but the same end result. I'm trying to save my yard. Our new house has tons of flower beds and they look great so I am going to try to keep them that way, but I have two pesky things stopping me. The moles in our yard are terrible thus Kenzi has uprooted much of the back yard in her attempt to get them (So far she has killed only one but it was a monster). Has anyone been successful in controlling their mole population and how did you do it? I've heard that Castor oil runs them off or kills them but we also have a lot of Robins that eat the worms that would be soaked in the stuff and I don't want to inadvertently kill all my birds.

Pesky yard destroyer #2 is the neighbor's dog. We think she is the neighbor's anyway. She doesn't get fed consistently by her owners so she has taken to burying any extra food she gets in MY flowerbeds. Has anyone tried Liquid Fence to deter other animals from uprooting their lawn? How did it work? If you haven't but have found anything else that works please let me know. Spooky, as we have come to call her since she is scared to death of people, is a pretty mutt we've come to take care of much of the time, but she's driving me nuts and killing my plants.

I know that my mother uses a spike that omits this high frequency sound every 10 seconds, it seems to be working, her yard looks alot better because the dogs arent digging holes anymore. She ordered the spike offline somewhere, and if I'm right its about 10 dollars a spike, and she only uses one spike for her whole yard, next time I see her I will try to remember to ask her, where she got it if you are interested.

I haven't had much luck having horses on either side of the dog yard pushes moles and gophers under the dog yard. However, Keegan's breeder said he's had a lot of luck putting his dog poop in the mole/gopher holes and then covering over with dirt. I'm thinking I'm going to be trying that soon it's getting out of control LOL

O.K, don't laugh. The wife swears that a stick of juicy fruit gum in each burro hole will get rid of moles and gophers. If nothing else it's cheap and environmentally friendly.
As for a liquid fence, someone on the forum has suggested Tabasco sauce to keep dogs away from items.

I have heard the juicy fruit saying. A little worried Kenzi will dig it up and eat it though. Might work in the front yard. Kenzi dug another mole out yesterday so that makes two, both about the size of a Guinea Pig. I haven't heard of dog poop to keep moles out but I have heard of it around fences to keep dogs from digging out. I have plenty to give it a try. I will also look into the spikes. We need something because it is crazy. Spooky isn't the brightest bulb in the box so I could probably saturate my flowerbeds in tobasco and she would probably love it. She is an odd dog. That stuff did work to stop Kenzi chewing deck railings though. I will give these things a shot. Thanks, everyone!

I know that they're not moles but we used to have a similar problem with groundhogs where they would come in and eat our Garden in the summer, completely ruining some of the vegetables and flowers that were growing. I've never really heard of any "secret method" to scare them off either. I also don't think they would want to move away from an established home with an easy food source, especially when there are plenty of predators in the woods waiting for them. So that left us with two options:

1: Set a trap and catch them, then release them in another area far away from your house and destroy their burrows.

2: Shoot them dead. Razz

Fortunately groundhogs are stupidly slow, so catching them and then releasing them several miles down the road was generally a viable option. As for the dog, I can't really say too much. You could try talking to your neighbors perhaps? Or maybe try and setup a fence of some sort around your garden? I actually helped to make some repellant for deer once to keep them out of a friend's Raspberry patches, it worked well but smelled horrible (it was basically rotting protean with vinegar iirc). I don't know if something similar like liquid fence would work for you, but it's probably worth a shot.
