I understand that a product called Vole Block (same as PermaTill) works well
when the product is incorporated into the planting area when the plants are
set.  It is a fired-clay or slate product that is like kitty litter with
very sharp edges which evidently deters the voles. Moles, of course, don't
bother the hostas, except to provide ready-made tunnels for the voles. It is
a permanent fix as it doesn't degrade.  The product is also used to loosen
heavy soils and clays. Just a thought,
