    I read somewhere on here or the garden site a product that you sprinkle on the lawn and it doesn't kill but rids the area of gophers and moles.

    ANYONE recall what that product is? I think it may of been something like UNCLE ?/


    Thanks so very much.

    Pee in the hole.

    Better yet, have a few brews, watch the Race/game, etc and then go pee in the hole.

    $5 for the beer

    $0 for sitting on your butt all afternoon

    Look on your neighbors face watching pee-ing in a hole in your lawn...........Priceless

    PS it will brighten up your grass too!

    I guess if I liked beer that would be a nice alternative. lol Thanks but I think I will stick with Ian's gopher repellent works it's magic.

    I will tell my hubby to get busy though.

    Is this Uncle Ian's castor based?
    I have used the stuff you get at Lowes, and farm and ranch stores that is basically corn cobs ground up and mixed with castor oil. My moles and pocket gophers just ignore it. In this part of Oklahoma I have found nothing that even seems to slow them down. If you kill the grubs they eat earth worms if you kill the earth worms they must live on air, I don't know. The gophers help themselves to my garden produce eating cabbages and tomato plants and beans. I have actually watched a tomato plant about a foot tall slowly sink into the ground as a gopher pulled the whole thing under ground as I watched. When it was done there was not a leaf left on top of the ground and only a hole the size of the stem of the plant. It was fasinating to watch. I have tried a lot of different products and nothing seems to bother them. According to Oklahoma State University moles usually have a population of only one per acre, and pocket gophers about the same,but it sure seems that they are double bunking on my place.

    * I used FRUIT STRIPE GUM (lightly chewed) on the moles in my yard in Cali. Worked GREAT!! Sucker was toast in about 3 days. Don't know about gophers, though.

    Okay explain this fruit striped gum. I am also in Calif. And what is it you did with the lightly chewed gum? I have so darn many holes where to start?

    Thanks​
