I turned on the soaker hose, and started weeding, and the dirt started wriggling right under my nose! "What the ?" -- Little black body the size of a gerbil/hamster came out of the dirt, humped and went back underneath! I followed/watched the wriggling dirt and a little pink nose came out. Eyes appeared to be closed (makes sense -- don't want dirt in his eyes!). I'm pretty sure this is a vole.
The question is, is he eating my veggie's roots? Is he the one that's been nipping leaves off my carrot seedlings and bits of the bean leaves? The damage hasn't been very extensive so I thought it was some kind of a bug.
I saw fresh dirt at the base of the raised bed and sure enough he peeked out of that hole too. Hopefully the watering will flood all his tunnels and he'll move out.... But if he doesn't, what should I do?
