Vole problems solved

We have voles eating everything in our garden.  We tried several attempts to eliminate them.  Finally we spread garlic powder around the perimeters of our garden beds and they have not returned to the garden since.  We also saw that making a mix using castor oil and dish soap will also chase them away.

    What do Voles eat in the garden?

    The OP's voles eat everything Lyn but perhaps they're vampire voles as garlic has put them off.
  • They ate our green beans, beets, potatoes and peppers.  They don't like the smell of garlic or castor oil.
