Here's a weird one for ya!
I am losing my fight with the voles in my yard. I have tried poison...didn't work. I have tried spraying chemicals on the yard that are supposed to kill the bugs tha voles feed off of. Another $200 down the tubes. I'm told that the electronic devices meant to drive them away are just a scam.
Sooooo.. I got to thinking, how's about buying/renting/borrowing a heat sensor (like the cops use to see the perp through walls), getting the exact location of the vole underground, then blasting him/her with a firearm?
Question.....how far will a round penetrate into soft earth? YES, I know that it depends on the consistancy of the soil and what caliber of tool I would use, but in general...anyone have experiance?
If it works, I may even start a business!
