Potential disaster - vole appearance!

andrea Landrea L Posts: 10

Having spent the last few weeks building, digging, planting and nurturing a new semi-herbaceous border I think I have a vole in the middle of the bed.  Initially I thought it was a rat - and bought some rat bait, but it's too cute for a rat and now I think it's a vole.  What can I do?  The last thing I need is the roots of all my new plants being eaten......  any advice appreciated

    Oh dear. Are you against poison for voles? I have moles in my big border. Have caught some with traps but they never go. They make tunnels under plants. Then the plants get too dry and die.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.

    can you get poison for voles?  would rat poison work?  Is anything more humane that is reliable?
