moles and voles

Posted by diana1959 7 (My Page) on

I live in South Jersey, and can't grow a lawn. I have so many tunnels from moles and voles (yes, I have both somewhere. My cats bring me them sometimes). I don't want to use poison, if possible, but will if I have to. Does anyone have an idea on how to get rid of these pests? I've heard that if you eliminate the white grubs, then they'll leave. If so, how do you get rid of them? Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

RE: moles and voles

I can tell you from trying to rid my yard of grubs, and therefore, armadillos, that this is a very tall order. First, the poison is quite expensive, and second, it only last 8 to 10 weeks and then you have to do it again. If I were you, I would call a local exterminator.

RE: moles and voles

Can't use poisons if you have an outdoor cat who hunts them.
