Mole & Gopher Baskets - 10 pack
Moles tunneling just underground can cause problems with your newly planted bulbs and other plants. Even though they are carnivores and are only looking for grubs, worms and other delicacies, they leave nifty passageways for voles, mice and shrews.
Great for veggies too, Dianna cages her cucumber plants next to the house where the moles and voles love tunneling under the grass clipping mulch for tasty items. Now she only needs to spot water the vegetables, before it was necessary to water a large area (“shotgun method”) to keep the varmints from going directly through the newly planted cucumbers and destroying the roots. You can make your own cages to any size using Hardware cloth from a building supply store, a heavy pair of scissors made for cutting wire and heavy gloves (or if no gloves have a handy supply of adhesive bandages because the wire edges are sharp). We’ve found these new 2-piece wire baskets much easier to use and the components being separate, you can easily dig them up if needed. One piece baskets are difficult to remove.
