Thanks for your question about voles. The Oregon State University Extension has a publication that can help you identify if your problem is from voles or some other critter. It then gives general guidance for control. The publication "Moles, voles, and gophers dig the garden" can be accessed at this link: http://extension.oregonstate.edu/gardening/2015/04/moles-voles-and-gophers-dig-garden

Another publication that goes into more detail on vole control is called "Meadow Voles and Pocket Gophers: Management in Lawns, Gardens, and Croplands". You can view it at https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/pnw627

Good luck.
