    There are things at the garden/feed store that you put in the ground,and they make a noise that is supposed to scare them off. Don't know it they really work. Hard to get rid of them,,,,they are underground!

    I was told the only way to get rid of them is to kill them all off and even then they will come back to their "home turf" they have created paths all through my yard. Also putting grub killer down helps reduce their food sources. I'd be weary of poisons but there are ones you can put in the ground too. I don't like killing them so I just let it be : /

    Yes I got those. The are good for Moles but not Voles. And I'm not talking about any of those Tenn Vols either.

    Well I am somehow some way going to eradicate these things. I am going to have to get my Camo's out and get some fireworks/firecrackers and give new meaning to turning my soil. These aren't just any kind of Voles...these are Maryland Voles. I am just going to go Arnold on these little Ba$tard$. Incoming! Shock and Awe! Get down and get funky. Maybe some of those metal pungie sticks for this problem as well.

    I will not use poison either even though the garden is fenced off.

    We have feral cats in the neighborhood, but they stay clear because my watchdog aka bloodhound Jewel is chasing them away.

    Well I was using firecrackers in some of the holes and I mistakenly pulled out an M-80 toilet burster. Man did that make a big boom, woke up half the neighborhood, and splattered cauliflower all over my camo fatigues. I caught hell from my wife to boot. RJ don't you know it is after 10PM and now Jewel and Bentley are barking their heads off with you making all that noise. "Yes dear." Then I told her I thought I saw Ted Cruz. She said he is not here and you need to get inside and quit with those voles. "Yes dear." Well there is this afternoon after work.

    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    those little bastards are killing our lawn! they eat the darn roots and then you have a maze of dead grass --- we also have feral cats in the area so they must have scared them off as we have not seen much dead grass in the past few weeks --- that or the heat
