There are many ways to help limit meadow vole damage as the cold season draws near. You can mow the lawn short at the end of fall, making it hard for voles to hide in the grass. You can also protect your trees and shrubs by encircling them with specially designed cylinders, wire meshes, or plastic guards . After the first snowfall, you can pack some snow around the base of your trees to protect their bark as voles dislike moving about in packed snow.
Furthermore, you can use rodenticide in the form of paraffin blocks . Any meadow vole gnawing on them will die within a few days. We recommend using bait stations to keep pets and children from coming into contact with the blocks.
Finally, there are also multiple catch traps, like the Pro-Ketch, that can catch more than a dozen of the small mammals at a time.
