Say Goodbye to Moles and Voles Forever!

Getting rid of moles and voles can be a difficult task! However by following a few simple steps it can be done.If you are looking for a quick removal of the pesky vagrants, use the Garden.com Whole Control.  Whole Control promotes and restores lawn and garden areas by inhibiting the formation of burrows, tunnels, ridges and holes that may be caused by Armadillos, Moles, Voles, Pocket Gophers, Prairie Dogs & Nutrias. Whole Control contains active ingredients that are natural and biodegradable. The product is not destroyed by rain and may remain effective for up to three months when applied as directed. This concentrate is sprayed directly into the areas where armadillos, moles, voles, gophers, and other burrowing animals are digging.It is not a poison and will not hurt any animals. Whole Control will leave a residual in the ground which tastes awful. As invaders dig, they will come in contact with the bad tasting soil and quickly decide the bad taste is too strong and prompt them to find food elsewhere.  Apply Whole Control when the signs of digging, tunneling and burrowing by animals first appear. For year round control apply Spring, Summer & Fall. DO NOT APPLY DIRECTLY TO LAKES, PONDS, STREAMS OR OTHER STANDING WATER.  For a more permanent control we recommend using the Garden.com Mole and Vole Eradication Program.  It requires using all three of the following products, in combination.1) Whole Control Spray & Mole Traps -- Effective immediately 2a) Vole Block -- Provides a long term underground barrier stopping future tunneling.  2b) Sonic Repeller - Emits a disturbing audio signal forcing rodents to flee the area.3) Milky Spore--Gets rid of the grubs that (mole-vole food) for up to 15 years!  Milky Spore is a naturally occurring host specific bacterium (Bacillus popillae-Dutky). This product is lethal to the white grub, a familiar destructive summer-time pest. It targets and discriminately works to attack the white grubs of Japanese Beetle.  Milky Spore is not harmful to beneficial insects, birds, bees, pets or man. The product is approved and registered with EPA, Milky Spore will not affect wells, ponds or streams. Vole Block is a non-toxic soil additive of coarse particles of expanded natural slate. Vole Block is applied as a physical barrier in the soil surrounding the root system and as a mulch on the surface around the stem. The VoleBlock barrier typically discourages underground voles from feeding on the roots of certain landscape plants.The Solar Ground Repeller by Pestacator uses high-tech sonic sounds to repel burrowing rodents in a clean, humane way. The complex, variable frequency sounds are directed through the tube to penetrate the tunnel systems. Sounds impact rodents' nervous systems; they cannot adapt, so they leave for good.
