Re: RE: moles/voles


Melody, 
I assumed you meant the battery operated ones sold by gardens supply
places. I never realized these pinwheels had any purpose other than fun.

> Donna: The little whirly flowers on metal sticks...usually look like
sunflowers or some such thing...usually found at all drug stores, chain
stores like Walmart, KMart, etc...the wind blowing the little flowers
around causes the metal stick to vibrate when stuck in the ground. Very
effective for tunneling rodent like critters.

Where did you all buy this vibration gadget at? Don't think I am
going<br>to need it. Momma and babies were seen leaving today. Guessing
there was<br>just too much stuff going on here this week and got tired
of moving them<br>as I went around the beds.<br><br>Must be voles, no
tails. Raining too much here today to take a picture.<br>But, they were
seen all in a row, heading north thru the back area of<br>yard, aka, the
wet lands.... Watched as they went thru my property, my<br>mothers, then
lost site of them mid way thru the next neighbors.... got<br>to say-
they are adorable!<br><br>Donna<br><br>> Jesse, I can't kill critters
either. I plant what they don't prefer,<br>I<br>> plant twice as much as
I need (tomatoes, peppers, etc.), I put caging<br>> 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<br>resident<br>> family to move along, it dissuades the next family
from movin

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