Fighting voles - 2 methods


Voles can become a nuisance

Voles are cute fellows, but if you have them in the garden and they do great damage there, at the latest you should fight them.

Voles can do a lot of damage
Voles not only dig corridors, but also indulge in the roots of roses or trees and on bulbs such as tulips or daffodils. Since they can cause a lot of damage in the garden, this means that you should definitely fight these little animals. Simply because they can become a real nuisance if they multiply.

Fighting voles - 2 methods
There are two ways to prevent this plague, which are actually quite effective. First you should look for the vole's passages, which shouldn't be particularly difficult. Now you can either poison bait that the voles eat and eventually die on, or you catch them with one box trap on. You should put these box traps in a protected place. The best way to attract the mice is with pieces of carrot or pieces of celery.

Fight voles in winter
Winter is the best time of year to catch voles because the mice find less food this time of year. You should protect new plantings with wire baskets so that the voles do not have any opportunity to tamper with the plants.
