Mice like things in garden, picking & leaving strawberries, eat bottoms of root veggies. Make tunnels. If vole, how do I get rid if them, have stuffed holes with poison bait, they just eat them. Have photos of creatures & their holes.

There is information on the WSU Hortsense website that describes the type of damage that voles cause. There are also management options for homeowners. http://hortsense.cahnrs.wsu.edu/Search/MainMenuWithFactSheet.aspx?CategoryId=13&ProblemId=6052 You can visit your Skamania County Master Gardner clinic for additional information. Dave Pehling is the WSU Wildlife Biologist bbased in Snohomish County. He is a good resource, too. pehling@wsu.edu
