Vole(s) in the backyard!

I recently planted grass in my backyard. I live in a heavily wooded area in Williamsburg where growing grass is a real challenge. I had the backyard looking "great" this fall and then the voles attacked. My yard is now a war zone of tunnels and dirt where the ground is so churned up that you sink with each step.

I need suggestions on the best way of ridding the yard of voles. I am willing to try anything except for getting a cat.

Please help!

  Get rid of the grubs and the voles will move on ** -- Bluetrain 11/13/2017 3:04PM
  Moles eat grubs. Voles eat plants. Try Vole Scram. ** -- Farming Hoo 11/13/2017 3:07PM
