I'm getting dry ice for the moles

I had hail damage on two cars and decided to try dry ice. The site also said it kills moles and attracts mosquitoes!

They are referring to skin Moles.

Re: I'm getting dry ice for the moles

Yeah, I'm missing something. What do dry ice and hail damage have to do with each other? The rest I understand. The sublimating CO2 is heavier than air so it will travel down the mole hole and suffocate them. Mosquitoes are attracted to CO2 (like in exhaled breath) so I guess they would circle the dry ice looking for lunch.

He would not let the moles use his cars, so the moles prayed for a hail storm and it worked.And now the wants pay backs.

Re: I'm getting dry ice for the moles

This is only my opinion, so take it for what you think it's worth. Dry ice may repair hail damage by cooling and shrinking the damaged area, thereby removing the dent.

Re: I'm getting dry ice for the moles

Somehow with the title to this I was picturing a mole with a smoking martini in his paw!!!!


Hadn't thought about the CO2 going down the holes! Good idea!

Re: I'm getting dry ice for the moles

If it kills Moles that way, wonder if it would do the same for Goundhogs?

it would take about $10 for a ground hog. I poured left over concrete at both openings for a ground hog.

I chased another one down with a garden tractor. Minced meat.
