I have a very nice lawn, however, I have a vole problem. I've tried smoke, poison and flooding, however, nothing works. In the winter, after there is a cover of snow on the lawn, they run around and make tracks which are difficult to fill in in the spring and summer.
If I were to fertilize well and then just before an impending snow storm cut the grass quite short, would the lack of cover possibly send them away? It is a local problem here in Driggs and the whole valley. I have another animal which digs up piles of earth and only once was I able to locate his hole...and may have flooded it.
