When there are sporadic piles of soil in your lawn, it is possible that moles are to blame for this. Most homeowners are unaware that overwatering the grass is appealing to pests such as moles. Fortunately, you can use castor oil to dissuade moles from making your lawn their new home. 


Voles are small rodents that can create intricate patterns in your lawn. These tiny rodents can also hide underneath areas of tall grass to shield themselves from their predators. Putting castor oil on your lawn can deter voles from encroaching on your property.
