Full Answer

Poison that kills voles is also hazardous to children, pets and less bothersome wildlife. Therefore, toxins should not simply be set out on the lawn. Rather, homeowners should place poison just inside voles' burrows. These rodents create dirt pathways leading to their holes, so traps function best along these routes.

Deer and rabbit repellents that contain thiram are effective against voles, but they need to be reapplied after rain. These repellents are dangerous to plants, so predator urines are sometimes better choices for vole repellents.
