I got one tonight, was eating supper and the wife looked out the window and said "is that a mole", Sure enough it was one digging, out the door I went with the shotgun and now he's in mole heaven.Hire a weasel
First you have not said what varmints you are trying to get rid of? Rock salt is a waste of time, only good for chasing kids out of the watermelon patch.With spring coming up, I’d like to prepare some non-toxic shot loads to defend our garden against varmints. What options do I have for a steel-barreled musket? I know that I can always use bismuth, but it’s awfully expensive for this application.
Next on my list of things to try.I connect a garden hose to my truck. Sick the hose down the hole and start the truck. One can make a plenum from scrap sheet metal to connect between the tailpipe and hose. There is also a commercial company that sells a rubber interface connector between the hose and tailpipe. Go on-line, they sell them on Amazon. Works great!
