Can't comment on the effectiveness but I finally figured out what this was on my neighbors lawn. He has a beautiful lawn and I always thought this was to keep dogs away buts it's for voles.

^^ Interesting, just bought 2 sets and will give it a try. I haven't seen any this year so far but there were lots of tracks in the grass when the snow melted.

Trapped 11 to date. Started using poison before the long weekend. I haven't had a trap kill since so:

- I either caught them all in traps/poison
- They have outsmarted me

See how the next couple days go!

Interesting comment about dogs. Mine pees all over the backyard and they still damaged it.

Do voles move as fast as mice? I heard they're slower.

I've caught mice with my hands. Harder to do with voles though (I grab mice by the tail).

Because you couldn't catch any voles to eat?!

I've never come across mice in person, but the Voles are pretty damn quick through the grass. Not to mention a bit tough to see at times.

Last year a few of them kept making holes at the property line next to my neighbors stones and if I came in the area would always run out and under my front step. Managed to kick two of them throughout the entire summer. Then after they would run onto the otherside of the fence til I left. At which point I started moving a trap right into the path they would come back. Got both of them

I picked up 2 packs of those sulphur bombs, will use pretty soon once it warms up and I can rake/fill the holes on a weekend.

I got a vole problem as well. Did you get these locally or online? Would prefer solar powered, but not a must...

Not sure where or if they are available locally but I ordered them from amazon and they just arrived yesterday and yes they are solar powered. Had them in the house last night under some lights and they were all buzzing so seems to be working and will stick them in when the snow melts.
