Thanks for your question. Remember for serious infestations of moles and gophers, the best approach is to use several products at once. Adding the Mole Scram Natural Mole Repellent, 10 Lb. Bag or Scoot Mole, 32 Oz. Hose End Spray Applicator will help get rid of these pests faster. Also make sure you do not have grub worms, the mole favorite.
