Voles and Moles

Between the dogs and the cats, they are catching at least 2-3 a day but may be more because the dogs eat them too. LOL
this is one of our cats~my son's Dora~she catches and brings one up to the door almost every day

Vole. Very similar to a mouse but is brown and short tale.
This is what voles do to hostas. Notice the roots are eaten clean up to the stem
You just put the hosta in water in the shade. Do not let the water go too high. the roots just need to be in the water.
This is in my nursery and I found this a couple weeks ago. You can save hostas if there is a small bit of the root stock or even part of a root left.
this is a hole that a vole comes out and it belongs to the mole run
this perfectly round hole with no disturbed earth is NOT a vole/mole hole but a wasp hole so do not disturb!
This is Sierra our Australian Shepherd hunting~see the dirt on her nose?
this is a mole and he is one of the biggest we had ever seen
the dogs dug him up. and he was relocated to the park.
