Vole damage in lawn
Every spring we notice a few trails in the lawn from voles. We basically rake out the dead grass, and it re-grows. However, with the snow gone, we now have trails but also many places with heaps of piled up grass and large patches of bare dirt. We have never seen anything like this destruction. We are wondering if the fall fertilizer would attract more voles to our lawn if it wasn't fully dissolved? Are there any measures we should take in the fall before the snow falls to discourage their presence?
