To keep voles away from your garden using natural methods, try attracting owls, hawks, and snakes—they're natural vole hunters. Build owl boxes to give them a cozy home. Create barriers around your plants using mesh or hardware cloth to stop voles from digging. Use plants that voles don't like, and spray natural repellents made from things like castor oil or garlic mixed with water. Keep your garden tidy by trimming grass and vegetation to remove hiding spots for voles. You can also set traps with a mix of peanut butter and oats, plant vole-repelling flowers, and add beneficial nematodes to the soil to naturally control their population. By doing these things, you'll have a healthier garden without using harmful chemicals.
