Re: RE: moles/voles

Nope, just the plain little ol' wind blown ones do the job just
fine...unless you live in a perpetually unwindy place that is. Of
course, the battery powered ones work a little quicker since the
vibrations are more constant but I've never seen the need to invest in
more than just the little plastic flowers on sticks...

Melody, <br>I assumed you meant the battery operated ones sold by
gardens supply<br>places. I never realized these pinwheels had any

sticks...usually look like<br>sunflowers or some such thing...usually

wind blowing the little flowers<br>around causes the metal stick to
vibrate when stuck in the ground. Very<br>effective for tunneling rodent

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