I think the USDA is offerring grants to folks to study the efficacy of non-chemical pesticides in the control of agricultural vermin. If you hurry, and submit your grant application, form 89-233a(as amended in 92) in triplicate in non corruptible PDF, before the extended dealine, and have your project approved by the local county extension agent, interested individuals submitting approved applications will recieve taxable stipends not less than six figures, payable over six years. Compensation can be suspended by dicretion of the director upon the default of the applicant to submit periodic form 03-444F reports under regulation Z of the Department regulations.

Zinc phosphide bait in the tunnels, mice traps in the tunnels, grub control spread on the lawn.

We used to have lots of voles. After getting a couple of cats, I haven't seen a live vole or any evidence of one in years...occasionally I see a cat or chicken running around with a little dead vole body, though.

..These Huge Voles???
If they are as big as cattle and a #4 Conibear leg trap won’t keep them. You may consider using a backhoe to make a pit trap. Of course you will have to line it with concrete, thems Really Huge Voles been known to dig clear to the next county before they come to surface. The Vole Holes are easily recognizable as they appear to be really huge mine shafts. I hear their hide goes for a fair price these days, and if you like the taste of horse flesh you'll love the taste of vole.

I hope this helps, maybe some of the other forum members can relate how they handle Huge Voles in their area.

As always, any questions, comments or pics, please post back.

You must have had a population explosion. Traps. Poison. Cats.
Usually I have a lot of voles. Haven't seen one for a while around here but do have plenty of mice.
Cats are a big help. I'm sure having an alert dog around doesn't hurt either. She sure has kept the squirrels and chipmunks under control.

Lat year my wife missed getting one of the kittens spayed. We got some really good vole catchers available. Won't deliver though.
