I have a vole problem. How can I get rid of them?

The voles have eaten every flower or hosta that was in the ground. I put everything in pots and they still dig into the holes in the bottom of the pots. Local exterminators and farm supply cannot offer any help. Got any ideas?

    There are granular chemicals and traps available for this, at your hardware stores.

      The farmers exchange said there was nothing they they knew of to control them and the exterminator said"good luck"! They have dug thousands of holes in my yard. Voles are a serious nuisance.

    it is temporary, but sprinkle cayenne pepper around the area, also math balls But you have to repeat often.

    They are horrible creatures! I'm sort of lucky...my dog loves to dig them up and kill them, but I have all kinds of big holes to fill back in so won't break an ankle. I wish I knew how to help you!
