Mole Catcher, Moles & Jeyes Fluid

Regrettably, we have engaged the services of pest control aka mole catcher for the molehills are beginning to multiply. Additional expenses but needs must.

One of our older parishioners swears by Jeyes Fluid to tackle moles!!!!! According to him, he “injects” Jeyes Fluid into the ground and that acts as a deterrent!!!!! I think I’ll stick with the professionals:)

The wee rascals are back!

As I type this, I am looking at ONE big fat molehill!

Yes, the moles are back. The truth is they have been back for more than a week now even tough we didn’t have any molehills in our garden until this morning!

Since last week, our neighbour’s garden on the right has been covered in molehills and so is the churchyard on the left.

These wee rascals are such a nuisance!

The Moles are back!

When we first moved to the Vicarage, the garden was covered in molehills.   Moles are a big problem where we live –  one of the disadvantages of rural living!  We got pest control to deal with them as humanely as possible.  Very soon, the moleshills were getting fewer  until one morning when there was no molehill at all!  Hooray!

Two weeks ago, I noticed that the molehills were back!  I was  disappointed. I didn’t expect them to operate in the Summer!

Another disadvantage of rural living is that it is very expensive.  Anyway, the Mhinisteir and I decided to pray over it.  So these days, every morning we look out of the window to look out for fresh molehills.  So far there are no new ones.  We shall keep on praying!!!
