Mary D. MartinIn Eastern Idaho this year, we have been inundated with an overabundance of voles in the fields, pastures and yards. Their population was so numerous that I was actually seeing them in broad daylight. Because of their excessive numbers this year, I thought they should inspire me to something, so this little jiggle is what transpired. A word to the wise for others with vole problems, keep grass killed from the base of young trees this summer; in return the voles will be less likely to eat the tender bark off your trees next winter. A girdled tree will die.

It’s a little gray vole.

Nope, not a mole.

Busy digging a hole,
