MolEvict, Lawn Mole Castor Oil, 5 Gallon Pail
Item #: 749M
There are many, many different types of castor oil. There is a type of castor oil for soaps, another for sealants, another you may have taken internally, another for pharmaceuticals, skin care, just to name a few. These types of Castor Oil will not work. We formulate a particular type of castor oil that is specifically repulsive to lawn moles. Something in our oil's scent, texture and composition makes these unwelcome critters want to vacate your premises as fast as they can, and that's good news for you. Added bonus: Our customers report that our castor oil is also effective in chasing voles, and gophers. They are trying our castor oil on armadillos as well! And it's natural and safe for your lawn, garden and pets!
Moles appetites can be voracious and they will often eat more than their weight in food every day. When searching for food, moles are very active tunnelers, often moving at a rate of 12-15 feet per hour. These burrows can damage lawns and gardens. While moles seldom feed on plant materials, mice may follow mole burrows, damaging bulbs and plant roots.
Our Special Formulation of Baar Castor Oil, MolEvict®, will drive pests away and is safe for the environment. 100% natural, it will not harm your pets or gardens. For best results apply every few weeks. A growing number of home owners are finding castor oil an effective way to get rid of moles, voles, gophers, and more.
How Much Should I Use?
How much to use can vary. Do you have clay soil or sandy soil? Everyone's property is different. The application process can be an art. But here's what we suggest to start. You can vary the amount and number of times applied depending on your soil. When using a garden hose and sprayer, the Gallon size treats up to 20,000 square feet. One Quart treats up to 5,000 sq. feet. Best to buy a sufficient supply for re-application. The formula should be applied 2 times per month then apply as needed for maintence. New 5 Gallon size available to treat up to 100,000 square feet!
"Thanks! MolEvict really does seem to deter voles, and has not harmed any of my plants." - S.T., Black Mountains, NC
"I am repurchasing MolEvict, Castor Oil for Lawn Moles. MolEvict is more effective than the bags of mole product offered by garden supply companies." - S.W., Lubbock, TX
"This is my second order of the Baar Castor Oil for Lawn Moles. Although I am using it for Vole control, I wanted to let you know I followed directions and sprayed twice (with a hose attachment sprayer). After the first time their activity was much reduced, and since the 2nd application, I see no evidence [of the Voles]. I have been chasing the critters for 10 years, using everything under the sun, with no success, but the Baar Castor Oil for Lawn Moles has chased them away. I want a back-up bottle to be ready for spring. Thanks." – A.M., Charlotte, NC
"I have been fighting moles and voles for years in my garden. The tunnels have allowed voles to eat a lot of young corn plants and seed. I started by spraying the aisles. That was enough for the moles. Now I just do a maintenance spraying before it rains and the moles have been very slow to return. Wish I had tried this years ago. Probably would have reduced the number of gray hairs I have." - S.C., Abbeville, SC
“After much research, we decided to buy Castor Oil Lawn Care to treat our mole and vole infestation. We're now three days into treatment and are AMAZED at how well this product works. We can literally see trails opening up as the moles/voles move out of our yard. Can't say enough good things about this, as the voles were destroying our grass and bushes- hopefully we caught them in time before they ate our tree roots too! Thanks to Baar for making such an effective and pet friendly product - and thanks to previous reviewers who helped persuade us to try it. The moles and voles aren't too happy about our purchase- but we're delighted! 5.0 out of 5 stars” - C.G., Canton, Ohio
"...It is not the sort of product that can be applied once and expect it to last throughout a summer season. I have had a severe mole, vole, and ground squirrel problem for the past 20+ years and have tried all sorts of solutions, i.e., poison worms and grubs, all sorts of traps, electronic vibrators and poison pellets. Some of the in-ground traps have been moderately successful, but the problem still continued year after year. This year I applied castor oil treatments on a monthly basis. At first the moles went crazy and torn up my property much more than they normally do, but after a couple of weeks they left the area. Since I have started the monthly treatments they have not returned except for one who I caught with an in-tunnel trap. My property is the best it has been in the past 20 years with the monthly treatments. Do not expect instant results. It takes a little time to train the moles to avoid your property... 5.0 out of 5 stars.” - S.F., Midwest
“We are surrounded by woods on 3 sides. Moles and voles everywhere! We systematically applied [Baar’ Castor Oil Lawn Care] around our yard, one area at a time. Areas treated have been mole free since. Now, just treat yard perimeter to keep them from entering yard from the woods. Now they are all at the neighbors’ yards and gardens. :-) Have to be vigilant and re-apply when lots of heavy rains or after 6 to 8 weeks, but certainly cheaper than the castor oil products available at home improvement and hardware stores. 5.0 out of 5 stars.” - Amazon Review
“I have been fighting these critters for two years. I have used two types of traps all to no avail. I put this out with a hose end sprayer and the moles are gone. It is so simple and you might think that spraying some of this on your lawn is not going to do anything, but it works. 5.0 out of 5 stars.” - Pep, Amazon Review
"I bought three gallons of your (Baar Lawn Mole Care, product #750M) castor oil last fall but didn't apply it until this past Spring. Having read an article last winter that discounted the effectiveness of castor oil as a resource in the war against moles, I was a little skeptical that it would yield any real results. Well, it worked very well! Within a couple days the moles were out of the lawn and keeping my cat busier than ever. There were no negative effects whatsoever. I mixed it in a tank sprayer and applied it using my lawn tractor. The detergent emulsified the oil and it applied very evenly. The results were evident within a couple days. Due to the amount of rain we've had this year I find I must re-apply. That's why I'm ordering the 5 gallon bucket. Thanks! Great stuff!" - M.P., Northfield, NH
"I followed your instructions about dish washing detergent mixed in with Castor oil. That worked well. But I heard about adding Red Cayenne Pepper to the mix. I did yesterday. About ten minutes after I sprayed, my cat went running to the area I had sprayed and grabbed a mole that had actually came out into the sunlight to get away from the mixture. Within an hour I witnessed a total of three moles surface. It was amazing. I guarantee they will think twice about returning, at least I hope they are smart enough. I used about 2 table spoons of pepper, just enough to turn it Pinkish Orange." - S.B., Hendersonville, NC
"I used the castor oil for moles a year ago and they are just now trying to come back. It does a great job of keeping them away." - S.S., Boyce, VA
"I am so glad this stuff (Baar Castor Oil Lawn Care) exists and it does work where nothing else will!! Thanks!" - S.S.
"...I tested your oil on my yard and after a week out of a dozen mole runs there are zero runs with new activity. I mixed your oil with natural orange cleaner to create an emulsion and filled milk jugs with the mix and water and shot it around the yard and I am really surprised by the rapid and complete success. Have ordered a gallon. Thanks and be well." - D.S., Oakland, OR
"I can't believe how well this stuff works! Thanks!" - D.J., Tehachapi, CA
“Great deal on a gallon of mole repellant. 5 out of 5 stars.” - R.T., Carbondale, IL
