Last year, moles attacked my garden. It was some kind of horror! Every day new dug holes. A work colleague suggested how to get rid of a mole forever. He recommended the Alfos insecticidal tablets. Immediately bought them and laid out in the same excavated mounds. A week later, there was not a single new pile of land. The tool really works.

After that, I did not see a single mole.So I managed to get rid of the mole in the garden forever. I recommend this method to everyone.
