Our beautiful home has been upturned, in some ways literally by a recent vole infestation.  These seemingly innocent little creatures have destroyed my once thriving hill of plants in our backyard. Here is a vole, or field mouse:

Don’t be deceived.

The horror.

The horror.

So what to do. I don’t want poison. Maggie has already caught and killed one of them.  And while, yes very good puppy, I can’t stand the thought of her eating or killing a mouse that had consumed poison.  So that leaves us with traps.  Wish us luck.
