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 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.

    @The Garden Frog with C Renee Thank you for bringing this post active again. I would like to know if the castor oil would kill the earth worms?

    • @Donna J I pour down a mixture of castor oil and water in my water can find that worms are still in the bed. LOL I have not conquered the moles and voles but I have lessened them. Getting rid of grubs is how you get rid of them but so many things are bad for the environment and with animals that roam my yard I do not use them. There are organic/natural but they are more than I want to spend. So for now I use castor oil and keep them away from my beds and let the dogs and cats dig for them everywhere else. LOL
