Getting rid of mole hills?

My parents live in the wilds of Scotland – it’s the typical Perthshire house that you see as you drive through the Glens. It’s beautiful. Like most houses there, the gardens are enormous. Unfortunately, with both my sister and I living in different countries, my parents are selling the house to move further South. Somewhere that puts them 4-5 hours away from me, rather than 8-9. Sad that they are selling the family home, but I know it’s got to happen.

In the preparations for sale Mum and Dad have spent a lot time getting the gardens perfect and the lawn immaculate. Well, it looked that way until a family of moles moved in. Up popped the first mole hill and it didn’t stop, until now. Apparently, there’s a tried and tested method of getting rid of moles that doesn’t involve calling the ‘mole man’ or using any of the more brutal methods. But, this method involves peeing on the mole hills.

We’ve lived in the same Glen since i was a kid, and it’s the first time I’ve ever heard of this method. My parents have now rid their garden of moles by peeing on the mole hills.  The moles are now attacking the lawn of the nearest neighbour. Apparently the peeing on the garden method of mole removal is not on her agenda.

Would it be on yours?
