RE: moles/voles

I always have such a hard time when ever I am working our MG
helpline...people are always calling in asking how to kill this or that
critter and I have to practically tie my mouth shut to keep from asking
why they want to do such a thing...best I can usually do is hand over
the phone to the other volunteer. :-(

Jesse, I can't kill critters either. I plant what they don't prefer,
I<br>plant twice as much as I need (tomatoes, peppers, etc.), I put
caging around<br>individual plants. I can kill some insects and that's
about it! The<br>vibration gadget sounds good, and not only does it
persuade the resident<br>family to move along, it dissuades the next
family from moving in when the<br>first one is
gone.<br><br>Libby<br>Maryland zone 6<br><br><br>-----Original
