An Investigation into the Efficacy of Mechanical Mole Scarers
This paper investigates the responses of European moles (Talpa europaea) to mechanical mole scarers. The three devices tested emitted vibrations in the frequency range 0 to 20kHz. Vibrations of this frequency are rapidly attenuated when passing through soil. Moles fitted with
radio transmitters gave no indication of being repelled by the mechanical devices.
