    There are some rare species of mole in NC--so NC decided to protect all moles, common Eastern mole included.
    True, if you tie up a small dog that likes to dig--like a beagle or rat terrier, in the yard it will scare the bajabbers out of a mole. Maybe you can entice your neighbors to walk their dogs in your yard every day. Moles will get the idea.
    Of course, those yellow propellers, ultrasonic pest chasers and noise-making beeper stakes are legal. I am not so sure about mole repellents like castor oil and castor bean plants, or red pepper. As far as the actual effectiveness--who knows?

    And... if you can get a rattle snake down the hole...
