Help with voles !!!!!

Asked August 24, 2016, 1:16 PM EDT

I have been dealing with voles all summer, and have found they are way smarter than I am!! After trying a repellent, blocking their tunnels with debris, using pinwheels at spots where they seem to enter, I have several fresh tunnels, and I think they have eaten most of my hosta roots. Any wisdom you could share would be most welcome! Thanks!!

I like the bait station in the Missouri guide. The baits must stay dry and hard.

Hi - thank you for your response. I'm afraid the trap will not work for me - space is limited, and I fear I have numerous voles in many spots - - some mornings, I have 4-6 new tunnel openings. Keeping up with them could be a full-time job ! Two treatments by a pest control company have also been ineffective. I am at a loss as to my next step.
