  1. Meadow voles make “miniature deer trails” in the lawn. Place a mouse trap with a big orange treadle without any bait so that the busy vole runs over it. Write down the hits, misses and search for other trails.
    Put a string on your traps and stake them down or else your full trap will fly off with a hawk, carry off with a cat or skunk. With a string and a stake, your trap might be robbed of its vole, but the trap itself will be found at the end of its rope empty.
    Traps are relentlessly patient and effective. You can’t trap voles where there aren’t any. If you don’t get any voles, keep moving your traps. Your log book will tell you where to always have a few traps set.
    Don’t use baits as they attract vermin, spoil, attract non-target animals and birds.
    Coffee grounds are great fertilizer for all veg and flowers. They do nothing to poison or attract moles. Do not use poisons as they get the neighborhood cat and stray dog. Voles will also put poisons in a silo, eat them later and then die where you cannot reach them for disposal.
    Two traps per trial is not too many. Voles take nothing off of a dead litter mate and run over them into the next trap.

  2. Castor oil is the deterrent or repellent for voles. Just use castor oil in a spray bottle and they will be gone. They hate the scent.

  4. Since the coffee grounds are so small that they can be sprinkled in between our plants and vegetables. This will act as a barrier for the rodents that would come and destroy them otherwise. Although it is a debated subject, coffee grounds do appear to repel voles in the lawn. Sprinkle some around vole holes in the lawn, and watch for any results. What can I pour down a vole hole? Mix a portion of castor oil with liquid soap, and dilute with a gallon of water. Spray or splash around the perimeter of your home, in burrowed holes, and your lawn and garden as vole pest control. Accuracy.
