We had moles and voles over the winter...left mounds and paths all over our
yard. I don't have the heart to kill critters...so I bought those sticks
that you put into the ground that send out vibrations that voles and moles
don't like. It worked like a charm. Haven't seen them since.
Even in our house, if we catch a mouse on a sticky trap....I take it out by
the creek and losen it off and set it free. I just can't kill them. I'm
such a wimp.
