I can suggest two things to deter the rotten vermin:

1. Plant the hosta in plastic pots with the bottoms cut off.  Plant the pots 
about an 1" above your mulch; so that the voles won't be bothered.
2. Plant the hosta in chicken wire baskets that you make.  Plant the pots 
about an 1" above your mulch.

No chemicals, poisons, etc..  You could still caster oil and pour it around 
the circumference of the hosta crowns, too.
