"VOLE update: There is absolutely no sign of voles. No holes, no mounds, no damage."
I actually worked in my flower bed this weekend, doing some preliminary cleaning. So, I was able to really survey the situation. There is absolutely no sign of voles. No holes, no mounds, no damage. I actually have black eyed susan plants (rudbeckia) that overwintered for the first time in 15 years. They are usually the first to go, followed by the yarrow.
I was reviewing my notes from last year, and by the first of April, the vole holes were everywhere. I sprayed what plants are currently growing with the powdered mix yesterday. I think that the bunnies are snacking. They have had four feet of snow to contend with since mid-December, so I guess that they might be hungry and looking for a treat. They have never been my "nemisis", so I don't mind them too much, but if I can give my early spring plants a break from the snacking, they should do really well this year.
I have some of the spray left, and I phoned my elderly neighbor who indicates that she has hundreds of voles. Mine probably went to live there! I am going to her home this afternoon to spray with what I have left.
