As some of you might remember, last year I managed to eliminate 3 voles using peanut butter and mouse trap. This year they are back. So I came up with the following creation (see pics). The metallic mesh is 6' long by 3' wide. I think it is either 1/2" or 3/4"mesh. I used two pieces of wood to prevent the mesh from touching each other and also used it to electrify the mesh. I left about 1/2" space between the two pieces. It is connected to 120V @ 15 amps in a completely fenced area. The vole(s) path to my lawn is to the right of my setup. So my guess is that it travelled over the first mesh )on the right side on the pic) and everything was fine. But then it reached over the second mesh while being in contact with the first mesh and did one hell of a jump and landed in a hole of the mesh. My assumption is that the initial shock didn't kill it. But it tried to escape by going thru the mesh.
