Garden Voles

Posted: 01/09/2013 at 18:26

I have a plague of voles, hundreds of holes. Many of them are in rings around trees and I'm concerned because I know that in winter they will eat the bark and probably kill the trees.  I've had my local pest control chap in and he'd never seen anything like it.  He's put poison in some, but can't do several hundred. He said it would take several visits but how he'll know where he put the poison goodness knows.  I cut the grass today and there are loads more holes 

Wasps on potato stems

Posted: 30/08/2013 at 18:00

I went to lift a potato plant today and found the base and lower stems of the haulms were simply alive with either wasps or bees, so many that I couldn't grab the stems to lift the plant.  Does anyone know whether they will disappear of their own accord, or damage the tubers?  Can I safely get rid of them without damaging the crop?
