Mole Control

Asked May 24, 2016, 12:06 PM EDT

I received a flyer on using Euphorbia as natural method of mole control. Is there any validity to this?

Euphorbia is a plant so I don't know how it is being used. Are you planting plants? Is some kind of extract being sprayed? But a number of years ago, castor bean plant was the big thing. Plant this and the moles will flee. It didn't work except directly under the castor bean plant.

If this works like most things that are supposed to repel some critter or other, the critter avoids the plant and continues on its merry way.

I have never seen any scientific research saying this will work.
