Answer: Unfortunately, the best solution might be to trap them. Voles tend to eat roots, so I would not be surprised if there are rabbits at work as well. You might be able to use fencing in some instances to protect certain areas or specific plants, and repellents, either home-made garlic and/or pepper based sprays or the commercial sprays, might help for preventing some of the above ground damage. Some gardeners report that a pet cat or dog can also serve as a deterrent. The native predators such as owls, foxes, snakes and hawks help out as well.
