There are many, many different types of castor oil.

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 armadillos, voles, and gophers! And it's 100% natural and safe for your lawn, garden and pets! More Information
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.
"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
"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 exists (Baar Castor Oil Lawn Care) 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 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 two gallons with one gallon of biodegradable liquid dish detergent and about 32 gallons of water 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
