Neem oil is often recommended as a natural remedy for controlling moles; however, its effectiveness can vary. Neem oil is derived from the seeds of the neem tree (Azadirachta indica) and contains various biologically active compounds with insecticidal properties. To use neem oil against moles, you can create a mixture of neem oil and water according to the manufacturer's instructions. Then, apply this mixture to the holes dug by moles or to areas you want to protect from them. Neem oil works on moles in several ways – it disrupts their sense of smell, inhibits feeding, and may irritate their skin.
However, it's important to note that the effectiveness of neem oil against moles can vary, and results may be limited. Moles are persistent creatures, and their natural instinct for digging can outweigh the repellent effect of neem oil. In some cases, moles may adapt or temporarily avoid treated areas. If you want to use neem cake against moles, you can sprinkle it around areas where you observe mole activity or into the holes you've dug. As the cake decomposes, it releases compounds that can deter moles and discourage them from treated areas. It's worth mentioning that neem cake may be less effective in mole control compared to other methods such as traps or professional mole control services. Moles are very persistent animals and can adapt or temporarily avoid treated areas.
