Moles

Moles are one of the most humorous and aggravating pests in the garden. Humorous because of all the lame-brain methods that we dream up to get rid of them. Aggravating because they drive you absolutely nuts until you catch them. Moles have long snouts and huge, flipper-type paws which enables them to swim through the soil.

What damage do they do?
Molehills can ruin the looks of a lawn, and the tunneling can undermine and sometimes kill valuable plants. Moles almost never eat plants, however voles (field mice) have been known to use the mole runs and they are voracious root eaters.

Mole Populations
It is rare to find more than five moles per acre. They hate each other's guts and the only time they rub noses is during mating season in February and March. (It's definitely not the boys rubbing noses!) The problem is that when you or your cat catches one, another soon senses that it's gone and takes its place. If you live in mole country, be ready for a long battle. Some farmers are known to catch well over 100 moles per year.

Repelling Moles (best method)
Make up some Mint Mole Blaster as follows: Begin by running a couple of big handfuls of mint stems and leaves through the blender with just enough water to make slurry. Then mix the blended concoction into a large soup pot full of water and simmer for about 30 minutes. This will make a concentrate that can be diluted to make about 6 gallons of mole blaster. Whenever you detect mole activity, pour the diluted mixture into mole holes and around the surrounding area. Irrigate lightly after application if the soil is dry. The key to success seems to be persistence. The moles evidently hate the smell of mint and if all goes well, the varmints will pack their bags and set up shop in your neighbors' gardens.

Pruning Trees in Spring

As you’ve been admiring all the fresh green growth in your yard this spring, perhaps you’ve noticed something else, too. Like excessive growth of a tree or shrub that you want to cut.

Generally, the best time to prune most trees is when they’re leafless in winter. But as you know, with each rule of thumb, there are exceptions.  Read on to learn more about spring tree pruning.

If you can prune your trees before they begin growing in the Spring, that still counts as dormant pruning and is the ideal time to prune because of these benefits. 

Once trees start budding or blooming in spring, though, double-check that pruning now won’t put your tree in harm’s way.

Can I do any pruning after trees have leaves and buds in spring?
In general, pruning in spring can limit the tree’s bloom potential for the year. Plus, trimming in spring can leave cuts on trees that leave them more vulnerable to an insect infestation or disease.

But, you can safely do some tree pruning in spring–as long as you don’t remove any more than 10 percent of the tree’s branches.

Your goal with spring pruning should be one of two things.

Pruning for safety: Remove any dead, dying or decaying branches to keep your tree (and home) safe.

Minimal pruning for aesthetics: Cut or remove branches to shape your tree a bit.

Are there any trees that are better to prune in spring?
Yes! If you’ve just planted a new tree, cut off any broken, defected or damaged limbs, then learn how to prune young trees to improve their structure...
