But even though the moles have an advantage to the soil, their activities to many of the gardeners is destructive and getting rid of these animals becomes the best solution.

Finally, though it was not scientifically proven, most of the gardeners and homeowners have claimed it an effective method that works all the time. Here is how to use it:
• Cut several small pieces of the gum.
• Dig into the mole tunnel using hand or a shovel, remove only the thin layer of the top soil but make sure not to disturb the rest of the tunnel.
• Place a piece of the gum into the tunnel, or the hole.
• Cover the hole back with the dirt but make sure not to close up the tunnel.
