HELP! I tried Margaret’s method of ridding the voles, and found I dont have the stomach for it. The vision of the first furry creature trapped and dead was more horrible than the dying hosta he recently feasted upon. The other traps are either on the end of a deer’s tongue, a fox’s foot …oh I dont know, but my vivid imagination with the missing traps has made it impossible for me to trap more. I am trying the garlic cylinders that you poke down the hole that will release garlic smell for a year. Had anyone tried these? Are they effective?
