Getting rid of voles

Asked August 14, 2019, 12:11 PM EDT

Voles are killing my yard and garden. No mounds of dirt but holes in the ground everywhere. Putting anti mole chemicals or a dried blood product that I bought At Costco does not help. We border to a park/ natural area which doesn’t help. Besides creating holes that could cause falls, my garden really suffered. Help

Voles reproduce quickly, but mousetraps may help. Here are some OSU Extension articles about voles with ideas for control. https://extension.oregonstate.edu/news/moles-voles-gophers-dig-garden https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/pnw627 This for WSU includes photos: http://cru.cahe.wsu.edu/CEPublications/FS094E/FS094E.pdf
