We have a mole in the vegetable patch. Although going by the destruction it causes it is hard to believe there isn't a whole gang of them.
For a week now we have played a 'battle of wills' game. Every night the mole uproots the broads bean plants, every morning we firm them into the ground again. I think the mole may be winning, the once healthy looking plants are beginning to look decidedly unhealthy. We have already lost a complete row of newly germinated carrot seedlings and now a row of beetroot seedlings appear to have been targeted.
Probably a complete waste of money but we have just bought a solar mole repeller. I will reserve judgement on it's effectiveness for now.
