We have recently laid bark around our small orchard on our allotment and now are plagued by moles ! Is this the bark that enticed them and how do we deter them as they are making a mess and the bark seems to be disappearing !



No the bark won't have encouraged the moles, as t deterring them - difficult... There are traps and various devices that you bury in their runs that create a noise which is mean to scare them off but I'm not at all sure any of them works.

Thank you Moon Grower . I did read online about the mole deterrant , but its so expensive, but the main ingredient is castor oil, so thats worth thinking about !
