  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?

  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Illinois's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Illinois's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Cook county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Elgin animal control for wildlife issues.

Elgin Wildlife Removal Tip: How to Get Rid of Moles in Yard with Castor Oil

Numerous methods exist to remove moles from a yard. When you know you have them, you might want to try all of them. Moles can cause a great deal of damage due to their tunneling, leaving your yard a mess. Between eating the bugs that could help your garden and creating tunnels throughout it, they are a pest for sure. One of the best methods for getting rid of moles has become castor oil. Since it is safe and effective, for everyone involved, there are no downsides to it. Adding a little around the area with the mole's food, making sure not to completely soak the ground, will do a lot of good for you.

What is Castor Oil

Castor oil comes from the castor seed. It is an oil used in numerous types of products, from consumables to medicine to more. One common use, for a long time, has been mole repellant. As a repellant, it works well. Moles do not like the smell, taste, or texture of it, making them leave the area immediately. The smell especially causes them to vacate as quickly as possible. It ruins their food and it ruins their new home - which is what you want. With everything smelling of castor oil, they have no option but to leave.

How to Use Castor Oil

There is not a lot to using castor oil. From applying to the area directly to using it with some warm water to mixing it with a few ingredients, the options are nearly countless. There is a plethora of ways to apply castor oil to your garden. The goal, in the end, is to create a castor oil smell. You can achieve this through any method, so long as there is enough castor oil there.

When applying it to the ground, make sure not to soak it completely. You want to dampen the ground, but only slightly. Reapply whenever it washes away for as long as necessary. Typically, though, this will work in no time and will product fantastic results.

Castor oil will not damage your yard or cause harm to anyone. It is a completely safe method of repelling moles in your yard. It works well, it does not harm the mole, it does not harm the plants or anyone around you, and it does the job you want and expect it to do. It is one of the best for a reason.
